Former CREED frontman Scott Stapp has been accused of starting a bar brawl in Baltimore last week by members of Los Angeles rockers 311.

The MY SACRIFICE rocker was reportedly "being very loud and obnoxious," according to 311 frontman SA MARTINEZ, who suffered a fractured knuckle in the resulting spat last Thursday night (24NOV05).

Martinez says, "We tried to ignore him, but it was impossible."

The 311 star claims Stapp started the fight with a "sucker punch" to drummer Chad Sexton.

The fight passed without police being called to the hotel where Stapp and the band were staying.
