Singe Wes Scantlin of the band Puddle of Mudd has pled not guilty to a charge that he vandalized his former home after it was foreclosed.
LOS ANGELES — Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin has pleaded not guilty to a felony vandalism charge filed after his arrest at a home he recently lost in foreclosure.
Los Angeles District Attorney spokesman Greg Risling says Scantlin entered the plea Friday.
The 43-year-old singer was arrested Jan. 9 by Los Angeles police and is accused of causing about $7,000 in damage to the home. He was also charged with misdemeanor trespassing.
He was charged on Wednesday, but missed his arraignment.
Scantlin is suspected of damaging the home’s plumbing, a garage door and ripping an alarm system out of the wall.
If convicted, he faces up to three years in jail.
