5/21/2007 10:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Scott StappScott Stapp, the former lead singer of platinum rock band Creed, was arrested in Boca Raton, Fla. last night on suspicion of domestic assault with intent to commit a felony.

Stapp, who spent the night behind bars in a Palm Beach County jail, is scheduled to appear in court this morning, where a judge will set bond.

At this point, no victim has been identified.

The 33-year-old rocker was married to Miss New York USA 2004 Jaclyn Nesheiwat in February 2006. The couple has a 4-month-old daughter together. Stapp also has a son from a previous marriage.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned that a judge has lowered Stapp's original booking charge from a felony to a misdemeanor. Now, the state attorney has 30 days to charge the rockstar or reject the case altogether.

One day all these entertainers/stars who are piling on the trailer park managers list will loose their right and funds to live in blind reckless opulence.They are destroying an industry with many hard working good people and their own freedoms & good life they were blessed with.

Because everyone on here has no issues they must deal with. If you only knew what the demons inside us do if we what to do what is right for God if you would listen closely to most of his music you can hear it. It is harder for a Christian and i believe that God will bring him through all of his battles. Stand strong in Jesus Christ Scott if you ever read these
