LATEST: Rocker Scott Weiland reportedly walked free from jail on Monday (12May08) - just hours after checking himself in to serve his eight-day sentence for driving under the influence (DUI).
It's claimed the singer began his stint behind bars at a California prison at 8.55am (EST) after pleading guilty to drink driving charges.
However, Weiland - who was axed from Velvet Revolver in March (08) after a series of spats with bandmates - was released from the Van Nuys Municipal Court Lockup at 6.54pm (EST), just 10 hours after entering the correctional facility, reports PerezHilton.com.
Weiland was given until 28 May (08) to complete 192 hours behind bars, but the rocker chose to start his jail time early so he could tour with the newly-reformed Stone Temple Pilots from 17 May (08).
