Former “Jackass” TV star, Bam Margera has had an arrest warrant issued for him, by Pennsylvania state authorities, in connection with an altercation at his home.
43-year-old skateboarder and filmmaker, Margera, allegedly engaged in a physical altercation with an unidentified person, outside of his Castle home in Pocopson Township. Police were alerted to the incident, and Margera reportedly fled into a wooded area around the Castle before police could detain and/or question him.
According to court documents, the charges levied against him include simple assault, harassment, and terroristic threats with the intent to terrorize another.
A more detailed account of the incident states that there were three 0ther individuals involved in the incident, on the receiving end of Margera’s threats. He allegedly told the assault victim “I’ll kill you. I’ll put a bullet in your head.” before punching them in the head and grabbing their arm. He also threatened to kill everyone in the house.
Bam Margera has been facing a number of legal issues while battling addiction in the recent past. The most public of battles was in 2021 when he sued the co-creators of “Jack-ass” Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze, and Jeff Tremaine, as well as MTV studios and Paramount, for firing him from the “Jack-ass Forever” movie. The co-creators came out to defend the decision, remarking that Margera was fired due to his inability to follow a clause in the contract requiring him to attend rehab and remain sober.
Giving a statement to USA Today at the time of the incident, Johnny Knoxville had this to say: “We want Bam to be happy and healthy and get the help he needs…We tried to push that along. I think that’s all I really want to say about it.” The lawsuit was later dropped.
As of late, he’s faced charges of public intoxication while out to dinner with his estranged wife, Nikki Boyd, and their 5-year-old child; as well as for kicking his girlfriend during a domestic violence incident which is currently under investigation.
