Bam Margera, whose birth name is Brandon Cole, has been taken into custody and sent to the Vista Detainment Facility on charges of corporal injury on a spouse, cohabitant, dating partner, or parent. The former Jackass star is facing allegations of domestic violence following his arrest in San Diego County on Thursday. It is reported that the 43-year-old kicked a person during the incident.
Bam Margera rose to fame as a skateboarder and stunt performer on the hit MTV series Jackass. He was known for his outrageous stunts and pranks, which often involved dangerous stunts and physical comedy. Margera also starred in several spin-off shows, including Viva La Bam and Bam’s Unholy Union.
Despite his success on television, Margera has had a troubled personal life. He has struggled with addiction and has been open about his battles with alcoholism and substance abuse. Margera has also had a tumultuous relationship with his family, particularly his parents, who were often featured on his shows.
Margera’s legal troubles began in 2019 when he was arrested for driving under the influence in Los Angeles. He was later charged with DUI and driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. Margera pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to three years of probation.
In February 2021, Margera announced that he would not be appearing in the upcoming Jackass movie due to creative differences with the producers. He claimed that he had been excluded from the project and that he was struggling with mental health issues.
Margera’s recent arrest on domestic violence charges has raised concerns about his well-being and his ability to stay out of legal trouble. Fans and supporters have expressed their concern for Margera’s mental health and have called for him to seek help.
