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

The Los Angeles County Coroner has ruled that accidental drowning was the cause of Whitney Houston's passing, but cocaine and heart disease were also contributing factors in her death.

Last month, Houston was found dead in her bath tub at the Beverly Hilton, just prior to the Grammy Awards. Many medications, such as Xanax, were found in her room.

Authorities found no evidence of cocaine in her hotel room, but it was found in her system.

The police do not suspect foul play, however alleged family members have called the Coroner's Office, believing Houston may have been murdered.
