Listen to Puddle of Mudd on iHeartRadio

(TMZ) - Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin was arrested in L.A. last night after cops say he roughed up his ex-wife in front of several witnesses, TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that police were called to a business in West Hollywood around 3:30 pm after someone reported Scantlin shook his ex-wife and then tried to drag her by the arm or the shirt. 

TMZ reports that when cops arrived, deputies spoke with witnesses and the victim - and decided to arrest Scantlin for domestic violence. 

Scantlin was extremely uncooperative during the arrest, and one source tells TMZ, "He was very mouthy."

Sources tell TMZ Scantlin - who penned the hits "She Hates Me" and "Blurry" - is currently in custody and bail has been set at $20,000. 

It's been a rough month for Scantlin, who was arrested on May 7 on warrants stemming from his cocaine case.
