Bam Margera On The Run From Police In Pennsylvania
Bam Margera has been having a rough go of it over the last few years. The former Jackass star has made headlines for everything from alcoholism to domestic abuse. Last month, Bam’s wife filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The two had been married for about a decade and have a five year old son together. This came less than one year after Bam was meant to complete court-mandated rehab, which he did not complete. His former castmates from Jackass have tried to convince him to get help, but it would appear that message is not getting through.
Bam became famous in the early 2000s for his participation in Jackass with Steve-O and Johnny Knoxville. He also had his own reality show, Viva La Bam. As such, he was an MTV staple for a few years. Since then, the reality star has fallen off for the most part. Last year, however, he was supposed to have taken part in Jackass Forever, the fourth film in the famed series. Sadly, that did not work out due to Bam’s reluctance to sign a “wellness agreement” that would have led to his not being able to drink. “We want Bam to be happy and healthy and get the help he needs,” Johnny Knoxville said of the incident. “We tried to push that along. I think that’s all I really want to say about it … don’t want to get into public back-and-forth with Bam. I just want him to get better.”
Bam’s Violent Streak
Last month, after Bam’s wife filed for divorce, he was booked for domestic assault. The former reality star was arrested at a home in Escondido, California due to an alleged physical altercation. According to the report, Bam kicked a woman, who was believed to be his estranged wife, Nicole Boyd. He was charged with “corporal injury on a current or former spouse, cohabitant, dating partner or fellow parent” and his bail was set at $50,000. He was released the next day. Sadly, that would not be Bam’s last run-in with law enforcement. Today, he is on the run.
According to a report from TMZ, the Pennsylvania State Police received a complaint of a disturbance on Sunday morning around 11 AM near Pocopson Township. The alleged victim accused Bam of being involved in a physical altercation. However, when the police arrived, Bam had already fled the scene. Apparently, he was hiding in a nearby wooded area. Currently, a warrant has been issued for his arrest, and the PA State Police are looking for him. They have asked the public for any information regarding his whereabouts. Although the charges he’s facing are all misdemeanors, they are still considered serious. What do you think of Bam’s situation? Let us know in the comments!
