Scott Weiland out of rehab
According to TMZ.com, VELVET REVOLVER/STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland has just finished a stint in rehab.
Weiland’s attorney told TMZ.com that Weiland has completed 28 days in a treatment facility and is “doing well.”
Weiland was arrested on November 21, 2007 when he crashed his car while driving on an L.A. highway.
He was charged with driving under the influence of drugs with a prior conviction, and with an allegation that he refused a chemical test as required by law.
His next court date is Wednesday, March 5.
According to MTV.com, Weiland has been arrested multiple times over the past decade for a variety of drug offenses in California and New York, and has spent time in jail on several occasions. He was arrested in 2003 in Hollywood after a traffic accident and charged with driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, though those charges were eventually dismissed after he successfully completed a drug rehab program and submitted to drug tests.
Although he was supposed to perform with VELVET REVOLVER on January 20 at a party in Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival, Weiland was a no-show for the gig. The vocalist’s flight to Utah was diverted because of bad weather. The band carried on with the show, inviting audience members and singer Donovan Leitch to pitch in.
Weiland will reunite with his STONE TEMPLE PILOTS bandmates for the first time at the Rock on the Range festival, to be held May 17-18 at Columbus, Ohio’s Columbus Crew Stadium.
