Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin has been charged with felony cocaine possession following his January arrest.

Early this year, the singer was pulled over for a traffic violation and the authorities found pills and an unidentified powder. TMZ reports that the substance was cocaine.

In addition to the felony, he has two misdemeanors for driving without a license and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Scantlin has pled not guilty, but if convicted, the musician could be doing up to 4.5 years behind bars

Bobby Brown, who was recently arrested under suspicion of a DUI, insists that he is only guilty of talking on his cell phone while driving.

"Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically," his lawyer Tiffany Feder told E! News. "He was speaking on his cellphone. Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident."

Earlier this week, he was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol for talking on his phone when officers noticed signs of intoxication.

The "My Prerogative" singer failed a field sobriety test and was booked at the Van Nuys County Jail.

"Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway," said Feder. "The legal process shall run its course."

The former New Edition member has been in the news since last month, when his ex-wife Whitney Houston died in her Beverly Hills hotel room.

Bobby Brown was arrested today on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The "My Prerogative" singer was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol for talking on his cell phone when officers noticed signs of inebriation.

He was asked to participate in a field sobriety test, and did not perform as instructed. Gossip Cop also reports that he blew a 0.12 during a breathalyzer test.

Brown was arrested and booked at the Van Nuys County Jail. TMZ reports that he was bailed out around 2:30 this afternoon.

In 1996, the former New Edition member was convicted of a DUI in Georgia.

Brown's arrest comes just weeks after his ex-wife Whitney Houston was found dead in her hotel room.
