Creed frontman Scott Stapp was arrested this weekend on charges of domestic battery, after getting into an altercation with his wife, former beauty queen Jaclyn Nesheiwat and throwing an Orangina bottle at her face. Neither Jaclyn nor Scott was injured. From TMZ:
According to the police report, Stapp’s wife, Miss New York USA 2004, Jaclyn Nesheiwat Stapp, claims that she called 911 after Scott stumbled into their $5 million mansion around 8:00 AM and got “very angry” when she asked if he was “using drugs.” Jaclyn told police that Stapp began yelling at her to “leave him alone,” before he grabbed an Orangina bottle and launched it at her face, nearly hitting her.
When cops arrived, they found the shattered bottle … and several handguns locked in a safe. According to the report, “Scott was very cooperative” about handing over the firearms, which were immediately confiscated. One of the responding officers claims that Stapp did admit to throwing the bottle, but the former Creed frontman also said, “Jaclyn was no where in the area.”
This isn’t Stapp’s first run-in with the law. The Christian rocker was arrested at LAX in 2006 for public intoxication while waiting to board a flight — to his honeymoon. He also ran into some trouble when he and Kid Rock made a sex tape with some groupies on a tour bus, and a video company threatened to distribute it.
