Launch Radio Networks has issued the following report from Don Kaye:
A Burbank, California hotel is pressing charges against VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland and his wife Mary after the couple allegedly trashed a room there. According to TMZ.com, Mary Weiland arrived at the hotel last Saturday (March 17th) to meet her husband, and the two got into what sources called a "huge argument." The couple allegedly threw alarm clocks and phones, made "dents and gouges" in the room's walls, and even left bloodstains on some of the linens.
The couple's two children had to be led away by Weiland's assistant after witnessing the dispute. Weiland himself left the room a short time later, while Mary could reportedly still be heard throwing things in the room until the police were eventually called. There's no word on whether Scott or Mary Weiland were injured, but the hotel is moving forward with charges for the damage.
Weiland previously pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges against Mary in December of 2001. He had to pay a fine and was put on probation.
The couple had also been estranged over Weiland's drug use several years ago, with Mary Weiland reportedly beginning divorce proceedings before the two reconciled.
Velvet Revolver's new album, Libertad, is tentatively scheduled for release on June 5th.
