Puddle Of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin has fallen foul of the law once again.

The singer was arrested immediately after the band’s set in Hermosa Beach, California, for missing a court hearing relating to a case in which he allegedly trashed a house in January this year, according to TMZ.

The website reports it’s the second time he’s skipped a court appearance and, as a result, a local judge raised his bail to $250,000. Scantlin is still thought to be in custody.

It’s the latest incident in a long line of misdemeanors involving the singer.

In February, Scantlin was involved in a standoff with armed police outside his Los Angeles home, while in March, Puddle Of Mudd walked off stage at a gig in Doncaster, England, leaving the singer alone to face the crowd.

Last summer he was involved in a drunken 100mph police chase, and is 2014, Scantlin found himself in hot water when he was detained on disorderly conduct charges in Milwaukee. He was also arrested for taking a joyride on a baggage carousel at Denver Airport.

Puddle Of Mudd’s next scheduled live date is on May 14 at Shots in Rolla, Missouri.
