Scott Stapp has been having a bit of a rough time lately and is suffering from an extremely serious mental meltdown and needs help. While he went AWOL from a mental health facility last month and then posted some crazy videos, deleted them and then wrote a diatribe on the Creed website, it seems things are a bit crazier (pardon the expression) than simple internet trolling. Mainly, his family is sure he’s out to kill Barack Obama.
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.
The 2 women were pleading with the dispatcher to snare Scott and take him back to the psych ward.
As cops were dispatched, Scott placed his own 911 call, saying his wife had stolen his truck and that’s why he was on a bike.
When cops arrived Scott told them Jaclyn had pilfered $6 mil 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.
Wow. Clearly people aren’t taking this very seriously, but let’s be honest – he has no chance of getting anywhere near the White House or President Obama. However, these crazy delusions offer a small window into just how disturbed he is, and he definitely SHOULD be institutionalized so he can be medicated and get some professional help. Egads.
