Stapp To Have Assault Charges Dropped?
Former CREED frontman SCOTT STAPP will not stand trial for domestic assault charges, because he and his wife JACLYN have rekindled their romance. The rocker is due in court on 5 February (08) in relation to a May (07) incident, in which he is alleged to have thrown a bottle of carbonated drink, Orangina, at his wife's head, narrowly missing the former beauty queen. In her emergency call to Florida police, Jaclyn claimed Stapp had been high on marijuana and other drugs when he returned home from a night of wild partying. The felony assault charge was later reduced to a misdemeanour after Stapp agreed to undergo drug and alcohol testing. And now Stapp may have the charges against him dropped altogether after working out the problems in his marriage. In a statement released by one of the Stapps' lawyers, the couple said, "We are passionately in love, blessed with two beautiful children. We believe in the sanctity of marriage and the commitment we made to each other before God. Any problem of the past we have overcome together as a family." The charges are expected to be dismissed early next month, reports local newspaper, Palm Beach Post.
