Creed Singer Scott Stapp Allegedly Threatened to Kill the President

scott stappFor all the talk about Amanda Bynes, she isn't the only big star from the '90s to go off the deep end recently. Turns out, Creed frontman Scott Stapp has had his fair share of issues. The rocker's estranged wife Jacklyn called the police when he fled her home after claiming that he was a CIA agent on assignment to assassinate the president. This is not some twisted, ill-conceived joke, either. Apparently Stapp has a very troubling history.

According to the New York Daily News, he was placed on 72-hour psychiatric hold when he was found "wasted" on the side of a road in Florida.

However, this latest sent his family into a panic and understandably so. Those rants suggest he may be delusional and dangerous. “He thinks he’s part of the CIA. He thinks they’re trying to kill him, and he has a bunch of paperwork in his backpack that he’s a CIA agent and he's supposed to assassinate Obama,” detailed the 911 call. She went on to say that he had been in and out of mental health facilities 8 or 10 times. "He's off of the drugs, and he's going crazy." He had taken off shirtless, on a bike, and with a backpack full of tools and 600 pages of documents he found online.

Cops did manage to track him down but said he was not unstable enough to be placed in a mental health facility. Seriously? That is almost as surprising as the supposed mental breakdown itself. Jaclyn, who is trying divorce Stapp, has also alleged that he threatened to kill himself and his Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor, hears voices, and has visions of people caught on fire. And early this month, his teenage son used Twitter to plead with his father to get help.

My dad is too busy posting songs on his FB hiding out for attention rather then getting his act together #dadstop ...To all tho confused, my father once again chose drugs over his family. He needs help, but refuses to get it. He's been on a 9 week binge.

If his family's claims are true, it would seem Stapp needs some sort of professional care. This all may come as quite a shock to many Creed fans. The star's Twitter page gave no hint to his troubles. In fact, he has been performing quite a bit in recent months. Let's just hope he gets the help he needs.

Are you surprised by what's reportedly happening to Scott Stapp?
