KMGH-TV reports that Puddle of Mudd lead singer Wes Scantlin was arrested by Denver police and charged with misdemeanor trespassing after taking his joy ride into an area that requires a security clearance for entrance.

DIA spokesman Heath Montgomery says this is only the second instance in 20 years in which airport officials remember someone riding the baggage carousel into a secured area.

Scantlin did not show up for his Tuesday arraignment and now faces a warrant for failure to appear in court. Neither he nor his manager could be immediately located for comment.
