Eagle candidate losing scout spirit.

Hi all, just wanted your opinion on this situation.
I have a Life scout who has completed virtually all of his requirements
for eagle except his project. He has served actively for 6 months in a
leadership position (SPL) and did it well. After his term as SPL was up
he stopped being a regular at our meetings and when he does come he is
disruptive and has not made one meeting without being scolded.
I don't want to add any requirements to ANY scout and wanted your
opinion on whether or not scout spirit should be held over his head to
get him to straighten out? I am also interested in other solutions. I
have spoken with him and his father and he is not really interested in
coming to the meetings even in a leadership position. IMHO I think once
eagle rank is obtained, he is history.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
