Former “Jackass” Star Bam Margera Flees Into The Woods

Former “Jackass” Star Bam Margera Flees Into The Woods

About a month ago, former “Jackass” star Bam Margera was arrested for the second time this year. The first incident, Margera was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. The second arrest came when Margera was picked up for public intoxication. 

The arrests came after a well-publicized relapse where Margera’s former co-star Steve-O revealed that he got drunk and disappeared while performing as an opener on Steve-O’s comedy tour. Steve-O ended up deleting the Instagram update on Bam, but not before the news went viral. Margera also spent most of last year in and out of rehab facilities. 

Sadly, Margera is in trouble again. Pennsylvania State Police announced on Monday that an arrest warrant has been issued for former MTV star. 

According to State Police, on Sunday, troopers from PSP Avondale Station responded to Pocopson Township in Chester County for a reported disturbance. State Police allege Margera was involved in a physical confrontation with another person, who suffered minor injuries. They then claim that Margera fled into the woods and as of Monday afternoon had not been found. 

TMZ later reported that Margera started banging on his brother’s bedroom door around 8 a.m. Sunday. He then left a note. “If you even f***ing think of calling the police on me I will officially f*** you up,” read the signed message. Allegedly, Margera’s brother later found him urinating in the kitchen sink and a fight broke out. After the fight, Margera’s brother said that Bam said: “I’ll kill you. I’ll put a bullet in your head,” and also threatened to harm everyone else in the house.

An arrest warrant was issued, and according to court records, Margera is currently facing four counts of terroristic threats and one count of simple assault. Police are asking anyone with information on his whereabouts to call 610-268-2022.

The “Jackass” franchise and Margera share a close connection with hard rock, punk and heavy metal, having featured various artists in their shows and movies. Some of Margera’s favorite bands were featured in “Viva La Bam” including HIM, CKY, Cradle of Filth, Clutch, Turbonegro, Slayer, Gwar and more. 

Billy Idol also made an appearance on an episode. “Jackass” also released compilation albums featuring bands used for the show. Artists featured on the show and in “Jackass” movies included Andrew W.K., Agent Orange and The Misfits, among many others.
