Scott will stay on Idol despite arrest.

Scott will stay on Idol despite arrest.
Producers knew about Scott Savol’s arrest for felony domestic violence, and thus he’ll stay on as an American Idol 4 finalist. In a statement, FOX and producers said:

“Scott Savol was forthcoming to the ‘American Idol’ producers and the network regarding his misdemeanor. After reviewing the facts, in which the charges were reduced to disorderly conduct, we felt that considering Scott’s honesty and his remorse, the situation did not warrant his disqualification.:

Somewhere, Jaered, Frenchie, Corrie, and Donnie are probably just a little pissed off. While Scott’s former fiancee didn’t have a comment, Shaker Heights’ police chief told the Cleveland Plain Dealer, “Scott Savol was not a problem in our community. He made a couple of immature judgment decisions at a young age. I don’t consider these things should cancel his opportunity.”
