Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland returned to the familiar surroundings of jail on Friday, Aug. 13, for violating terms of a probation stemming from a previous drug possession conviction.| Last month, during the course of his outpatient treatment at the Herbert House Sober Living Facility, Weiland overdosed on heroin, an incident that reportedly constituted a third violation of his probation.
Weiland was sent to the Los Angeles Country Men's Central Jail without opportunity for bail "to show that this will not be tolerated...[and] to help him make up his mind to stop killing himself," Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler said Friday, according to the Associated Press. The singer's next court date will be Sept. 3. Calls to Weiland's manager and attorney were not returned at press time. Atlantic Records, the band's label, did not issue a statement on Weiland's incarceration.
STP's fourth album, conventionally titled No. 4, is due in stores Nov. 2.
