Original Story: is running a report that ousted Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland is currently in custody after a theft of razors led authorities to find meth on his person. The report goes on to claim that he had been in jail for the last four weeks. Weiland himself has disputed the report, posting the following video from a recording studio in which he claims the story is a lie and warns TMZ they will be hearing from his attorney.

TMZ themselves have since responded to his video stating that a rep for the L.A. County Sherrif’s Dept. asserts that Weiland is “definitely in custody”. Loudwire shared this image of the arrest report, further complicating matters as it does appear to back up TMZ‘s claims.
