Scott Weiland charged with driving under influence of drug

Singer Scott Weiland was accused of driving under the drug influence after he crashed his car. His publicist denied allegations and said the singer was involved in a minor accident.

The Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver singer, who has a history of drug problems, was driving on a state highway on Nov. 21 when he had the accident.

The singer was arrested after an officer noticed he showed "signs of impairment" and failed field sobriety tests, according to a police report obtained by the celebrity site TMZ.com.

Weiland, 40, was taken to the Van Nuys Jail where he refused to take a blood or urine test, according to the police report. He was booked and released on $40,000 (Ђ27,275) bail. His next court appearance was set for Dec. 13.

Weiland's publicist said in a statement that the singer was involved in a "minor accident," but denies he was driving under the influence.

"Scott was not driving under the influence of a drug, legal or illegal," Kristine Ashton-Magnuson said. "He voluntarily took a breathalyzer test which the defense believes registers well within the legal limit."

"He is anxious to get to court ... and clear this matter up," she said.
