LOS ANGELES (AP) — 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.
