Scott Stapp’s wife, Jaclyn Nesheiwat, claims that she was “in fear for her life” when the rocker flung a glass bottle of Orangina at her face during an alleged incident Sunday morning.

Jaclyn Nesheiwat Stapp, claims she called 911 after Scott stumbled into their mansion around 8:00 AM and got “very angry” when asked if he was “using drugs.”

Jaclyn Nesheiwat Stapp told police that Scott Stapp began yelling at her to “leave him alone,” before he grabbed an Orangina bottle and launched it at her face, nearly hitting her.

When cops arrived, they found the shattered bottle … and several handguns locked in a safe. According to the report, “Scott was very cooperative” about handing over the firearms, which were immediately confiscated.

One of the responding officers claims that Stapp did admit to throwing the bottle, but the former Creed frontman also said that “Jaclyn was no where in the area.”

That’s what Naomi Campbell said when she hurled a phone at her assistant. Come on, Scott. There’s no point in lying.

Stapp was busted on suspicion of domestic assault with intent to commit a felony. However, as the Executive Editor of our celebrity gossip department notes, if he were a real hardass, he would have made her drink the Orangina instead – that $h!t is horrible.

Orangina is also four letters away from vagina. Just saying.

After spending a night behind bars, a judge lowered the original booking charge to a misdemeanor. The case is in the hands of the State Attorney, who has 30 days to charge the rock star or reject the case.

According to several published reports, Jaclyn Nesheiwat has dealt with Stapp’s demons before. The lame singer was arrested at LAX in 2006 for being publicly intoxicated while waiting to board a plane to Hawaii – for their honeymoon – but no charges were filed.

Britney Spears is probably feeling better about her own airplane theatrics about now… at least she wasn’t drunk. On her way to her honeymoon. Though she may have been at one point.

Jaclyn Nesheiwat was Miss New York 2004, but lost out in the Miss USA 2004 pageant to the lovely Shandi Finnessey, who went on to compete on Dancing with the Stars this season.
