With bloodshot eyes and a half-cocked smile, Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin posed for the cop cam yesterday after he was arrested for being a disruptive drunken idiot on a flight.

TMZ broke the story, a JetBlue flight bound for L.A. made an emergency landing in Austin, TX yesterday after Scantlin allegedly got in a heated drunken argument with a flight attendant.

Once the plane touched down, Wes was arrested for public intoxication — but he could also face prison time for interfering with a flight crew … a federal crime.

Scantlin is due in court in Austin on October 3rd, when he’s scheduled to be arraigned.

Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin was just arrested at an Austin, TX airport for allegedly becoming drunkenly combative with a flight attendant while in the air — a rep for the Austin PD tells TMZ.

According to the Austin PD, Scantlin got into a verbal argument with a flight attendant over alcohol. It’s unclear exactly what provoked the argument, but a source with airport security says Scantlin was upset because the flight crew wouldn’t sell him booze.

Scantlin’s flight was originally bound for L.A. but was re-routed to Bergstrom International Airport in Austin for an emergency stop, where Scantlin was booted from the plane.

A rep for the Austin PD tells us, Scantlin was arrested and booked for public intoxication, but he could also later face federal charges of interfering with a flight crew.

FYI — Scantlin pled "guilty" to felony cocaine possession in July, but the judge agreed to clear his record in 18 months so long as Scantlin obeys all laws … a condition Scantlin may just have violated. 

Bottom line — if Scantlin actually did cause a mid-air ruckus he could face prison time for the cocaine charge, as well as for public intoxication and interfering with a flight crew.
