Creed’s lead singer Scott Stapp (pictured) is convinced he is a CIA agent who has been assigned the task of snuffing out President Barack Obama, according to the New York Daily News.
Stapp, who was just returned to his Florida residence by his estranged wife, Jaclyn (pictured), after being held for 72-hours at a mental health facility, fled his residence. He was reportedly hellbent on a mission to assassinate the president according to his wife; she and her sister placed a frantic call to 911 reportedly alerting them to the fact that Stapp wanted to kill the President. The duo begged police for another mental health facility stint for the seemingly disturbed Creed frontman according to the Daily News.
“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 explained on the 911 call, the Daily News reports. “He’s off of the drugs, and he’s going crazy.”
Stapp has allegedly been in and out of mental health facilities at least 8 to 10 times. Jaclyn and her sister allege, Stapp left the home shirtless and on a bicycle. He had been carrying at least 600 pages of documents he had found online and was lugging a backpack with tons of tools.
Meanwhile, Stapp also contacted 911 to allege Jaclyn had stolen his truck which was why had to travel via bicycle. The couple, who are in the middle of divorcing, have had more than their fair share of relationship issues.
Last November, Stapp was reportedly committed to a mental health facility by Alabama’s Madison County Sheriff’s department when he was discovered on the side of a road intoxicated, incoherent and hallucinating about an attempt on his life via poison.
Jaclyn also claims the 41-year-old performer has threatened to kill not only himself but his Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor. The soon-to-be-ex Mrs. Stapp also alleges that he hears voices and envisions people being set ablaze.
Stapp, who claims he is sober but penniless, might not get placed in a psych hold facility this go-round because, according to the responding officers, he was not unstable enough to warrant getting locked up again so soon.
