'Cause frankly, we always thought he was scary as hell. Turns out American Idol finalist Scott Savol has a violent past. The 28-year-old was arrested in 2001, The Smoking Gun reports, after spending Valentine's Day roughing up the mother of his then-3-week-old baby. (And they say romance is dead.) Besides calling his ex names and pulling an engagement ring off her finger, the walking creepshow is also said to have thrown a telephone at her. Upon hearing of the incident, Randy Jackson remarked, "It was just aw'ight for me, dawg. But you did your thing. You did your thing."
