Weiland bassist won’t be charged
Tommy Black drug investigation dropped in aftermath of singer’s death
Tommy Black, bassist with Scott Weiland’s band The Wildabouts, will not face drug charges related to the investigation of the singer’s death.
Black, 47, was arrested in the aftermath of the tragedy after controlled substances were found near Weiland’s body.
Bloomington Police’s Deputy Chief Mike Hartley says the investigation of Black was ended after “weighing what it would take to probe the narcotics charges.”
He tells People: “They were found in a bunk, and with several people residing on a bus, a number of people could have potentially possessed those narcotics. So we decided not to pursue charges against him.”
