On Friday, January 16, Puddle of Mudd front man Wes Scantlin arrived at Denver International Airport before a show scheduled for that night at Casselman's, where he promptly hopped on a baggage carousel. That did not end well. "Evidently someone in their group was egging him on to do it," says Seth Daniels, who promoted the show. "They were videotaping it for, I don't know, trytostayrelevant.com. [TSA] told him to get off and he refused. They didn't arrest him immediately, they warned him. 'Hey, if you don't get off the luggage rack, we're going to arrest you.' He refused to get off, so they arrested him."

Daniels, of Rock Panther Presents, had to hear about the events second-hand, as he was in Albuquerque managing an MMA show. He received a call at about 3 p.m. from someone at the limousine company handling transportation for the band. Initially, Daniels thought it was a joke. "It is pretty funny but it would just be a lot funnier if it didn't happen to me," he says.More »
