Charges of aggravated assault against Scott Stapp were reduced to a misdemeanor today (May 21) by a Florida judge.

Police were called to the house after Stapp allegedly threw a bottle of Orangina at his wife’s head. The bottle missed her head and broke. The bottle is was not considered a deadly weapon in this case, a fact that led to the charge reduction.
