Oh brother. I honestly didn’t think it was possible for the already next-level messy story of current-day Scott Stapp to get any messier, but here we are with a story about Scott Stapp believing that the CIA is telling him to kill the President. In case you’ve forgotten, the last Scott, STAHP! story we got from Scott’s estranged wife Jaclyn was that Scott had been seeing fire people and hiding from ISIS while smoking/snorting/eating every drug ever created somewhere in Atlanta. Now TMZ says that Jaclyn is back with another Scott, STAHP! story titled The Tale of Scott’s Topless Bike Ride.
Jaclyn says that last month, she and her sister were forced to call 911 after they discovered that Scott had escaped from a mental health facility and was joy riding around the neighborhood topless on a bicycle, claiming that he was a CIA agent on a mission to kill President Barack Obama. Jaclyn says Scott had printed out 400 to 600 pages of CIA documents he found online and was carrying them around in a book bag with him on his bike, and urged the police to catch him and take him back to the mental facility.
Now, here’s where the story gets messier (yes, messier than a post-jailbreak topless bike ride). When the police found Scott, he claimed he was riding a bike because Jaclyn had stolen his truck and $6 million of his Creed money, and that the only reason he was locked up in the first place is because she put him there after he confronted her about it. That’s when the police decided he wasn’t crazy enough to get him locked up again and let him ride off.
This all happened last month, so I am hoping that all the meth Scott’s wife says he’s been smoking has melted the part of his brain that was telling him to kill the President. But in the event that it hasn’t and he still believes he’s part of the CIA, do you think it would be too much to ask Jesus and maybe the fire people to step in and hold an intervention asking him to return to the mental health facility? It wouldn’t be hard – Scott already has the hotel room.
