UPDATEDx2: Scott Weiland Charged with Burglary and Possession of Meth
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 08.22.2014

UPDATE 2: TMZ has once again updated their story, reporting that the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has confirmed that the Scott Weiland in custody is not the Stone Temple Pilots member. The Sheriff's Department says that the man they arrested claimed to be Weiland and looks identical to the singer.

Once TMZ contacted police following the release of the video, police--who previously had claimed that they had the actual Weiland in custody--confronted the man in jail and admitted that he was a fake. The sheriffs say that the Beverly Hills Police Department made the arrest and identified the guy as the famous Weiland.

UPDATE: TMZ has updated their story, noting that Weiland posted a video to Facebook that appears to be him in a recording studio and claiming he's not in jail.

However, TMZ spoke with a representative with the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. who said of Weiland, "He is definitely in custody. We did a physical check on that inmate and he is currently in custody."

On addition, the Beverly Hills Police Department gave TMZ a written statement titled "Celebrity Arrest" that read, "The suspect, former Stone Temple Pilots band member Scott Weiland (46 years of age), was taken into custody for burglary and possession of a controlled substance."

The Facebook video is below:

ORIGINAL TMZ reports that Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland has been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and burglary. According to the report, police found methamphetamine on Weiland.

Weiland was arrested after allegedly attempting to steal razors from a Rite-Aid in Beverly Hills, California. A security guard attempted to stop him as he left, but police caught him down the block. Methamphetamine was found in his possession during a search.

Weiland also apparently tried to name drop himself to the police, saying, "I'm Scott Weiland from Stone Temple Pilots."

Weiland has been in jail for four weeks on $95,000 bond. He was charged with burglary instead of theft because police claim he entered the store with the intent to steal. Weiland allegedly carried an "insulated" bag which prevents censors from going off.
