SLASH: SCOTT WEILAND Was Not Under The Influence At The Time Of Latest Arrest

Former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash has rejected news reports suggesting that his VELVET REVOLVER bandmate Scott Weiland was under the influence of alcohol and drugs when he was arrested Monday morning after causing a collision with several parked vehicles in Hollywood.

Slash's official fan site, www.snakepit.org, spoke to the guitarist earlier today to get his side of the story that was broken this morning by BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "[Slash] said to tell everyone that Scott did have the accident and did attempt to leave [the scene], but he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol," reads a post on the site. "What he was doing out and about [at 6:30 in the morning] is anyone's guess...maybe heading to the studio? Maybe picking up his birthday cake...it was his 36th birthday Monday! We're willing to take Slash's word on this. To finish the story, Scott was released on $15,000 bail with a court appearance scheduled for November 17. Hopefully, before then the charges will drop to a traffic violation. Scott is a colorful character, and it looks like he is going to give us all some tense moments, but the band stands behind him and with him."
