Scott and Mary WeilandThe tabloid frenzy that is Scott Weiland’s life continues. As if Sunday’s announcement that Scott and Mary Weiland trashed their Burbank hotel room last weekend wasn’t enough, TMZ.com reports that only hours later Mrs. Weiland was arrested for burning her hubby’s $10,000 wardrobe on the couple’s front lawn in Toluca Lake, CA:

According to police, 31-year-old Mary Weiland was booked for investigation of felony arson vandalism after cops responded to a “female burning clothes” call late Saturday evening.

The couple’s two kids were placed in the custody of family friends.

Weiland was booked at a Burbank police station just after midnight Sunday morning and was released after posting $50,000 bail three hours later.

As previously reported, the prior incident at the hotel got pretty bloody:

Sources tell TMZ that Weiland and his wife Mary ripped alarm clocks and phones from their sockets and threw them, made “dents and gauges” in the walls, and that there was even blood found on some of the linens afterward. (A picture taken at the scene shows a note attached to a trash bag that says, in Spanish, “with blood.”)

I realize that by writing about it I’m part of the problem; but can’t this dude catch a break? His private life isn’t my business and really we have no idea what happened. But the dude could really use some love. I hearby declare today “Give Scott Weiland a hug” day. The guy could use a few.
