STP's Weiland Arrested For Probation Violation

Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland was arrested on Friday for a probation violation stemming from a felony heroin charge in September of 1997.

According to a police spokesperson, the singer failed to provide a urine sample to his live-in drug treatment center, Impact House, which then in turn notified Los Angeles Superior Court. Weiland was sentenced back in August to 90 days in treatment and three years probation.

A spokesperson for the District Attorney's office says that Weiland and his attorney went to court on Friday to modify his suspended driving privileges. He was taken into custody on the spot. The singer is being held in the discipline section of Los Angeles County Jail without bail until he goes before a judge on Wednesday. At that time, Weiland's probation could be extended or he could be sentenced to more jail time.

Weiland also has a court date set for Friday in New York for an unrelated heroin charge. The singer does not have to appear

in person.
