STURGIS, S.D. (AP) —Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin faces his second DUI charge in less than two weeks, this time in South Dakota near the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

A state Highway Patrol trooper pulled Scantlin over early Wednesday for a traffic violation east of Sturgis. The rock group has had concerts in the area.

The 43-year-old music star has been charged in Meade County for DUI and possession of up to two ounces of marijuana.

Scantlin’s ticket says he declined a blood alcohol content test after being pulled over in a minivan. He posted bail.

Scantlin was charged in Minnesota in July with drunken driving and fleeing police after a chase that reached speeds of about 100 mph.

As of Thursday, the patrol has made 150 DUI arrests in the Sturgis rally area.
