Rocker’s wife arrested in Burbank

first_imgBURBANK — Hours after Scott Weiland and his wife brawled in a luxury hotel, the Velvet Revolver rocker’s wife was arrested for torching his $10,000 wardrobe outside their Toluca Lake home, police said today. Mary Weiland, 31, was booked for investigation of felony arson vandalism after officers responding to a “female burning clothes” call at 10 p.m. Saturday found a trash can full of smoldering clothes, Sgt. Mathew Ferguson said. Officers telephoned Weiland and he said the wardrobe was worth $10,000, the sergeant said. The couple’s two children, ages 4 and 6, were placed in the custody of Weiland friends. The arrest culminated a rowdy weekend for the couple. A few miles away at the boutique Graciela Hotel on Pass Avenue, the couple got into an argument that left two hotel rooms vandalized, Ferguson said. Police were called to the hotel at 3:47 p.m. Saturday. “Both rooms had damage and items scattered, broken plates and things. It was looking definitely like items were deliberately destroyed,” the sergeant said. Mary Weiland was at the hotel with the couple’s children when police arrived. She voluntarily went to the police station to give a statement and Weiland, 39, showed up later with his attorney to give a statement. “She is a suspect in the vandalism. He is not,” Ferguson said. No charges were filed and the couple left. Ferguson said it was up to hotel owners to decide if they want the woman prosecuted for vandalism, which would be a felony because damage exceeded $400. Ferguson said the amount of damage to the two rooms wasn’t known, only that it exceeded $400. A Graciela Hotel receptionist said Monday that there would be no comment about the incident. The 100-room Graciela Hotel describes itself as a “home away from home” for many of its guests. Many of the rooms and suites have full kitchenettes for long term stays. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
