Scott Weiland denies that he has been arrested. In a video posted on his Facebook, he says that he has been "locked up ... in the studio," instead of being in jail as reported by TMZ. "I just got reading something very interesting," he says in the clip showing him in a studio in Los Angeles. "A nice piece of fiction from TMZ saying that I was in jail and have been for a month."
He insisted, "I've actually been touring, writing and recording my new album, at the studio we're in right now, a Los Angeles studio. So all I have to say to our fans is whether you find it funny, or interesting, or whether you're sad, don't worry, don't fret. It's a lie." He apparently plans to take legal action against the site which first spread the news, saying, "TMZ, you'll be hearing from my attorneys. Thank you."
