Creed Star Apologises For Domestic Assault Arrest
Former CREED star has publicly apologised to police and fans following his domestic violence arrest at the weekend (20May07).
The rocker's wife, former Miss New York beauty queen Jaclyn Nesheiwat, begged the authorities to call at the Florida home she shares with Stapp after the drunk singer allegedly started throwing bottles at her in a row.
Stapp was arrested and initially charged with aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony. This was later reduced to a misdemeanour.
Now, four days after the incident, Stapp has issued a personal statement thanking his family for support during "an insecure time in our marriage," admitting he and his wife of a year are in counselling in a bid to save their relationship.
He writes, "I am truly sorry and seek forgiveness from my wife. As she has done the same seeking forgiveness from me. We both know we were wrong in how we handled the argument and in some of the allegations that were made. Now we are trying to move forward as a family.
"Things were stated to the police in the heat of anger that were not completely accurate. Things have been said to the media and reported after the fact that are not accurate as well.
"My wife and I love each other very much and are actively seeking support to help us resolve this tough time and bring our loving family back together as one.
"Together, with counciling (sic), as well as working on changing areas of our lives in a mutual effort to learn, grow, and mature positivley (sic) as a Mother, Father, Husband, Wife, and Spiritual human being, we will overcome this."
