Scott Weiland of Velvet Revolver Fame Charged with DUI

Velvet Revolver rocker Scott Weiland has been charged with driving under the influence after crashing his car last month.

The troubled star smashed his vehicle on a Los Angeles highway on November 21. Nobody was injured in the accident.

According to police, Weiland refused to take a blood or urine test and was arrested at the scene for "driving under the influence of a drug."
He was released after posting $40,000 bail and is due in court on 13 December (07).

Weiland, whose battle with hard drugs is well-documented, has previously been convicted of DUI in 2003 and for buying crack cocaine in 1995. He was charged with domestic violence in 2001.

Earlier this year, he hit the headlines again after his wife Mary was arrested on arson charges after setting fire to Weiland's clothes outside the couple's Toluca Lake, Calif., home following an argument with the rocker. She blamed her behavior on an imbalance in medications used to treat her bipolar disorder.
