Creed Singer Scott Stapp Threatened To Kill Obama, According To Wife’s 911 Call
Creed singer Scott Stapp allegedly told his wife that he is a CIA agent on a mission to assassinate President Obama, a remark which prompted her to alert 911.
Scott had just gone AWOL from a mental facility late last month, when his sister-in-law told the 911 dispatcher he was cruising around his neighborhood, shirtless on a bicycle. She says the former Creed frontman claimed to be a CIA agent and his mission was to kill Obama.
Stapp claimed in a rambling video the IRS is trying to ruin his life because he’s been trashing Obama.
Jaclyn Stapp, Scott’s wife, joins the 40-minute 911 call, telling the dispatcher Scott had printed out 400 – 600 pages of CIA documents which he supposedly found online, put them in a book bag and took off on his bike.
Both of the women pleaded with the dispatcher to take Strapp back to the psych ward.
While officers were dispatched, Scott called in to 911 saying his wife had stolen his truck and that’s why he was on a bike.
When police arrived on the scene, Scott told them his wife Jaclyn had stolen $6 million from him, and when he confronted her she decided to get him locked up.
In the end, police determined Scott did not show enough signs of mental instability to warrant a psych hold.
… Jaclyn has filed legal docs trying to get Scott on a 60-day psych hold, claiming he was deep into various drugs, including coke, weed, PCP and amphetamines. Scott posted a video claiming he’s drug free.
The Huffington Post reports:
Seemingly fixated on Obama, Stapp gave a recent interview in which he blamed the president for his current financial problems.
“In 2012 I was doing a promotional tour for my book ‘Sinner’s Creed’ and went on Fox News and expressed a little concern and disappointment with President Obama. Within two months of that public statement, that’s when the IRS began to freeze my accounts,” Stapp said. “I believe that the IRS situation is definitely a result of me expressing my dissatisfaction with President Obama. Absolutely, 100 percent.”
I thought he said his wife pilfered $6 million. Unless she secretly works for the IRS?
Stapp’s wife filed for divorce weeks earlier, claiming that the singer’s drug use had left him a “paranoid shell who has threatened to kill himself and harm his family.”
The audio of the call was obtained by TMZ:
Last month, Stapp took to his Facebook account to say that he was relying on God until “justice is served.”
