Weiland, who has battled drug problems in the past, must serve his sentence by May 28.

Additionally, the singer was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program and pay almost $2,000 in fines, reports TMZ.

Weiland recently announced that he would be reuniting with his original band, the Stone Temple Pilots, for a tour this summer.
