The Scott Weiland impostor was able to fool 3 BIG law enforcement agencies into believing he was the Stone Temple Pilots front man, despite the fact he was fingerprinted immediately, which was a dead giveaway and they even had his real name. It’s an unbelievable story and an incredible screw up. Jason Hurley was arrested July 26 on burglary and meth charges. He told Beverly Hills cops he was Scott Weiland and that was good enough for them. Cops didn’t have a clue they had misidentified a guy who was in custody until TMZ posted a story based on the BHPD press release and Scott fired back he was in a recording studio.
