In a scene strikingly similar to Puddle of Mudd’s video for “Control,” the couple was seen fighting on the side of Highway 126 in Piru, California. Witnesses reported seeing a man forcing a woman into a Jeep Cherokee driven by a third person.
Sheriff’s deputies and California Highway Patrol officers stopped the Jeep shortly after and arrested Scantlin and Rubin, who were on their way to a video shoot. They were booked at the Ventura County jail and released after posting $20,000 bail each.
The arrests did not affect the Puddle of Mudd tour, which kicked off Tuesday in Austin, Texas.
