It's been learned that Creed frontman SCOTT STAPP was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold last month after deputies in Florida found him on the side of a road appearing wasted and rambling about someone trying to poison him. His wife, Jaclyn Stapp, filed for divorce last month and court papers say Scott has threatened to kill himself and his AA sponsor, and she says he has guns. According to the police report, Jaclyn said Scott hears voices and has visions of people on fire. She says he's also paranoid and left a message with the dean of his kid's school, warning that it was about to become the target of an ISIS attack. In what explains it all, Jaclyn says he's been using steroids, weed, cocaine, PCP, Special K, Crystal meth, and various prescription drugs. Stapp posted a video on Friday saying he's broke, sometimes homeless and sometimes goes without food, although Jaclyn says it's because he blows all of his money on drugs, and has resorted to pawning personal belongings to pay for them.
