The wife of former Creed frontman Scott Stapp pleaded for authorities to come to the couple’s home over the weekend, according to a 911 tape released Tuesday.
“He just threw a glass bottle at me,” Jaclyn Nesheiwat said in a hysterical call Sunday. “He just came home, he’s wasted ... he’s been out partying all night.”
She told the dispatcher Stapp was “on drugs and pot. There’s a lot of pot in the house.”
Nesheiwat also said Stapp had guns in the home. Asked how many, she said: “I don’t know, a lot ... I don’t know, five or 10.”
No one was injured.
Stapp was arrested Sunday and initially charged with aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony. The charge was reduced to a misdemeanor Monday.
Before police arrived, Nesheiwat called 911 again.
“He’s hiding all the drugs,” she said. “He’s still under the influence right now.”
Stapp’s guns, which he has licenses to own, were seized from a locked safe as part of regular protocol when authorities respond to a domestic abuse call, his lawyer, Robert Gershman, said Tuesday.
Stapp, 33, married Nesheiwat — who was Miss New York USA 2004 — in February 2006 in Miami. The couple have a baby daughter, Milan Hayat Stapp.
Stapp’s former band Creed sold more than 25 million records in the United States. The Grammy in 2001 for best rock song went to Creed’s “With Arms Wide Open.” He has since started a solo career.
