The lead singer of the band Stone Temple Pilots has been arrested for investigation of drug possession.

Scott Weiland was arrested near Los Angeles early yesterday, and released several hours later on $10,000 bail.

Police in Burbank, Calif., say officers stopped Weiland because he was driving without his lights on. They allege he had narcotics in the car -- but haven't said what kind.

Weiland has been arrested in the past for investigation of cocaine and heroin possession. He went to jail in 1999 after violating his probation and failing to complete drug rehabilitation programs.

In 2001, he was arrested on a charge of domestic battery after a fight with his wife at a Las Vegas hotel. The judge agreed to dismiss the charges as long as Weiland underwent counseling.
