A bench warrant has been issued for Scott Weiland's arrest after the VELVET REVOLVER singer did not appear at a probation status hearing on Friday (July 30), according to MTV.com.Weiland's lawyer characterized the warrant as a technicality and called it standard practice when a hearing is rescheduled, noting that the hearing has been pushed back to Tuesday. The hearing was supposed to determine whether the probation Weiland received from pleading no contest to driving under the influence would affect his probation from a prior drug-possession case. Weiland's lawyer Anthony Brooklier said that because Scott had a full schedule of performing and traveling, he had requested two weeks ago that the court reschedule the hearing. "It makes it sound pejorative to say there's a warrant," Brooklier said. "You knew this guy would not even not show up for a hearing. The court agreed to put [the hearing] over [until Tuesday], and they issue a bench warrant and hold it. That's what it really amounts to."
