SCOTT WEILAND Ordered To Live-In Drug Programs

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS/VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland was ordered on Thursday (Oct. 30) to report to a live-in detox program followed by six months in a residential drug rehab center, according to Reuters.

The court order followed Weiland's arrest on Monday — his 36th birthday — for crashing into a parked car in Hollywood and leaving the scene of the accident. He was charged with driving under the influence.

Weiland, who has a history of heroin addiction, which landed him jail time in 1999, was already undergoing a court-ordered drug counseling program.

Pasadena Superior Court Commissioner Collette Serio said on Thursday that she would allow Weiland out of the residential facility for a 10-day period starting Nov. 7 for four hours a day so that he can finish recording an album with his new band VELVET REVOLVER.

Weiland will be taken to the recording studio by a police officer and tested for drugs immediately on his return.
