Singer threatened to kill President ObamaPosted By: Denise IRANZI - On:15/12/2014
Just after he returned home from a 72-hour psych hold in Florida, the rocker fled his house, prompting his wife and sister-in-law to call cops and beg for another commitment, according to newly released 911 tapes obtained by TMZ.
Jaclyn Stapp, Scott's estranged wife, and her sister called police and explained the singer threatened to kill the President."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 supposed to assassinate Obama," one of the women said in the call.
They said Stapp has been in and out of mental health facilities, completing at least eight or 10 stints. Doctors recommended the women call police for help, they said."He's off of the drugs, and he's going crazy," one of the women said.
The worried sisters said Stapp fled the family home shirtless on a bike, with a backpack full of tools and between 400 and 600 pages of documents he supposedly found online. Meanwhile the rocker called 911, too: He claimed his wife stole his truck, forcing him to use the bike, TMZ reported.
When police caught up with him, they determined Scott was not unstable enough to be placed in another psych hold. In November, Madison County Sheriff's deputies temporarily committed him they when found him on the side of a road "wasted" and rambling that someone was trying to poison him.
Previously, Jaclyn Stapp, who is seeking a divorce, claimed that the 41-year-old singer threatened to kill himself and his Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor, hears voices and has visions of people on fire.
Stapp said that he is broke but drug-free in a bizarre, rambling November Facebook video. Earlier this month, the Stapp's 16-year-old son, Jagger, debated his dad's sobriety and took to twitter to plead with his father to get help.
"My dad is too busy posting songs on his FB hiding out for attention rather than getting his act together #dadstop," the younger Stapp tweeted. "To all though 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."
