Creed’s Scott Stapp wanted to ‘assassinate Obama,’ 911 call reveals

Rocker claims he's broke and living in a Holiday Inn

 

Creed frontman Scott Stapp worried his family so much last month that they called 911 and begged law enforcement to put a psych hold on him.

A newly released 911 call reveals Stapp’s wife and sister-in-law called police to report the Creed singer was riding around shirtless on his bike, claiming to be a CIA officer with plans to assassinate President Barack Obama.

“He thinks he is part of the CIA. He thinks they are trying to kill him,” a woman TMZ identified as a family member of Stapp’s told police. “He has a bunch of paperwork in his backpack that he is a CIA agent and he was supposed to assassinate Obama.”

She added, “He thinks he is being trained by the CIA.”

The woman tells police Stapp is riding around with a backpack and “a bunch of tools,” and that he is mentally ill.

His wife recently filed for divorce but emphasized that she will continue to try to get help for the rocker.

In November, Stapp posted rambling online videos on Facebook saying he was broke. He later deleted the videos.
