In response to MANY emails we indulge in our love of all things bad for Stapp:
Scott Stapp has apparently fallen off the wagon and back on to the police blotter.
The former Creed frontman was arrested Sunday at his home in Boca Raton, Florida, and charged with felony assault stemming from a domestic violence row, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
According to a sheriff spokesman, Stapp returned to his residence about 8 a.m. after a long night of partying and was confronted by his wife, former Miss New York USA 2004 Jaclyn Nesheiwat, who began quizzing him on where he’d been. At that point, the Human Clay singer became defensive and the couple started arguing.
“He got angrier and allegedly threw a glass bottle of Orangina, almost hitting her in the right side of her face,” sheriff spokesman Paul Miller tells E! Online. “She was in fear at that point that he might do something else, so that’s when Palm Beach County deputies were called to the scene.”
No one was injured in the incident. Miller said deputies corroborated Nesheiwat’s account and that the 33-year-old rock star was “deceptive” when they questioned him about throwing the bottle.
Stapp was taken into custody and charged with one count of assault with intent to commit a felony. He was held overnight without bond at the Palm Beach County Jail before appearing in court this morning.
There, Judge Cory J. Ciklin reduced the charge to misdemeanor assault after determining the Orangina bottle was not a deadly weapon.
Stapp is also temporarily barred from contacting Nesheiwat, though the judge did grant him access to a separate building at their expansive Florida estate so he can work on his music.
So, basically he’s still a threat to society.
Goddamn liberal judges…
