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.

Scantlin is suspected of damaging the home’s plumbing, a garage door and ripping an alarm system out of the wall.

If convicted, he faces up to three years in jail.
