The Associated Press reports Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland was ordered to return to a live-in drug detoxification center after leaving early, officials said. Weiland, 36 was ordered to report to the facility last October after pleading no contest to possession of heroin. A Superior Court judge learned Friday (January 23) that he had walked out or was discharged after only a month and ordered him to return, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

He is eligible for release in July but must participate in a six-month follow-up program. If he leaves the center again or tests positive for drugs, prosecutors will seek a warrant for his arrest, Robison said.
