Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland was arrested on suspicion of drug possession in Burbank this week, adding to a string of arrests stretching back to 1995. The incident, which began when police stopped Weiland for allegedly driving with his lights off early Sunday morning, may be another setback in the Los Angeles rock band's attempts to reestablish its career momentum. It also clouds a pending side project pairing the singer with three former members of Guns N' Roses.

Second chances in rock? That's the stuff of nostalgia-laced reunion tours and pathos-filled codas to VH1's "Behind the Music"--fallen idols clinging to long-past glory.

Stone Temple Pilots lead singer Scott Weiland was back in a Pasadena drug rehabilitation center Thursday--one day after walking out of a court-ordered stay at the residential facility. Deputy Dist. Atty. Michael Grosbard said the 28-year-old singer cited "personal reasons" for his departure after turning himself in Thursday afternoon, and that the court was satisfied that drugs were not involved in the incident. A warrant that had been issued Wednesday for Weiland's arrest was quashed.
