44-year-old Jason Michael Hurley was able to convince the Beverly Hills Police Department that he was Scott Weiland, former frontman for Stone Temple Pilots.
When Weiland saw a TMZ post claiming he was in jail he responded in a video showing him not in jail. "I just got done reading something very interesting, a nice piece of fiction from TMZ saying that I was in jail and have been for four months… I've actually been touring, writing and recording my new album."
As for Hurley, he'll probably face additional charges for providing police with flase information. To read the original TMZ article, click here
