Just two days after Scott Stapp, the lead vocalist of rock band "Creed," posted a video rubbishing rumors about his death and drug abuse, a new report by TMZ claims that Stapp was found by the police in a wasted and delusional state earlier this month. He was placed on psych hold for 72 hours thereafter.

Stapp was apparently found mumbling to himself, rambling about how someone was trying to poison him, TMZ reported. The cops reportedly put him under psychological care for three days.

This is not the first incident of Stapp's mental instability. While filing for divorce a few weeks earlier, Stapp's wife Jaclyn said that he has threatened to kill himself several times and would also hear voices in his head. She also claimed that Stapp was paranoid. He reportedly went to his kids' school and told the authorities that their premise was going to become a terrorist target of the ISIS.

Stapp also sent weird text messages to her that read "Florida is not safe. Biological weapons on the way" and "God created you and now God is ending you."

In a video Stapp posted on his Facebook page on Thursday, the rocker explained that some people were trying tocause him harm. He also revealed that he was penniless and homeless and had gone without food for several days.

In an interview on the Roz and Mocha Show on KISS 92.5, Stapp said that the US Internal Revenue Service had frozen his bank accounts and he blamed the US President Barack Obama for it.

"I believe the IRS situation is definitely a result of me expressing my dissatisfaction with President Obama. Absolutely, 100 percent," he said on the show.

In the video, Stapp also said that his civil rights were violated and he would fight for it.

"This all will be public, I'm going to take it public and I'm going to expose, and I'm going to fight, every single individual that is responsible for this. Right now I'm looking for an honest, good attorney that's ready to fight and take it all the way to the top," he said.
