Puddle Of Mudd rocker WES SCANTLIN has hit out at his model ex-girlfriend - after she had him arrested, claiming he'd beaten her up.

MICHELLE RUBIN's charges against the 30-year-old were dropped and no further action taken - but Scantlin is still bitter at what he sees as a publicity stunt.

He says, "Look at me. Do I look like I would do something like that?

"It was all bulls***. She wanted to be a somebody and made it up for attention. Nothing happened at all."
