Creed singer charged with throwing Euro-drink

Tbdstapp052207Not that anyone really listens to Creed anymore, but the band’s former frontman, Scott Stapp, was arrested in his Palm Beach County home over the weekend after a confrontation with his wife, former Miss New York USA Jaclyn Nesheiwat, the AP reports. He had been charged with aggravated assault to commit a felony, but the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor Monday. Judge Cory J. Ciklin reduced the charge “because the allegation is that Stapp threw a bottle of Orangina at his wife, at her head, and missed and the bottle broke,” a sheriff’s spokesman said. Apparently that doesn’t qualify as assault with a deadly weapon, either.
