Wes Scantlin, 43, is no stranger to encounters with cops.

Assault rifle-toting officers reportedly encircled Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin’s home last month during a dramatic two-hour standoff that ended in yet another arrest for the oft-jailed singer.

Cops responded to a call about a car burglary on the “She Hates Me” singer’s Los Angeles driveway, only to find Scantlin dashing into his home, TMZ reported Saturday.

After Scantlin, 43, repeatedly disregarded officers’ demands that he emerge from the house, they brought in more than 30 other boys in blue, who eventually broke down his back door and arrested him on a previous warrant unrelated to the standoff.

Police reportedly said the “burglary” call had been miscast, and that the rocker and his buddies had just been attempting to jump-start a car.

The Puddle of Mudd frontman was with trespassing last year for cruising around on a baggage carousel at Denver International Airport.

The “Blurry” singer was arrested March 9 on a felony charge and released on $ 50,000 bail, jail records show. The Los Angeles Police Department has not yet returned the Daily News’ request for comment.

It’s unclear whether this was the same Hollywood Hills pad Scantlin lost in a foreclosure — where he was arrested in January for squatting and causing nearly $ 7,000 in damages.

Scantlin was also charged in July 2015 with DUI in southern Minnesota.

The new report comes days after Scantlin had a shirtless onstage meltdown during a March 23 show in Doncaster, England, reportedly drinking and bragging to fans that he was high on crack while they yelled obscenities at him.

The singer has a slew of arrests under his belt, including a July 2015 DUI charge in southern Minnesota, a Jan. 2015 trespassing charge for cruising around on a baggage carousel at Denver International Airport, and a Sept. 2012 arrest after his booze-fueled tomfoolery aboard a Los Angeles-bound flight prompted an emergency landing.

He also was arrested on domestic abuse charges for allegedly dragging his ex-wife in May 2013, TMZ reported at the time, and pleaded guilty to cocaine possession a year before that.

Scantlin has even received a lifetime ban from Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion, where in 2007 he took an ill-advised dip in a private pool.
