Bam Margera arrested just weeks after his Jackass co-star gave heartbreaking 'you're dying' warning | The Sun

TV star Bam Margera has been arrested for domestic violence after he allegedly kicked a woman just weeks after his former co-star gave him a warning about sobriety.

The former Jackass member and professional skateboarder, whose real name is Brandon, was taken into police custody after cops received a report of a domestic dispute on Thursday.

When police arrived at the home where the alleged dispute occurred in Escondido, California, a woman claimed to the cops that Bam allegedly kicked her.

Bam was arrested and booked on a charge of corporal injury on a current or former spouse, cohabitant, dating partner, or fellow parent, The San Diego County Sheriff's Department confirmed to The U.S Sun.

The relationship status of the woman and Bam is unclear at this time as the woman referred to him as her "husband," law enforcement told TMZ.

But, TMZ's sources said that the alleged victim isn't Bam's estranged wife Nikki Boyd, but instead his current girlfriend.

Nikki filed for legal separation from Bam on February 14 as her attorney David Glass told TMZ that the separation was due to Bam spending time with their five-year-old son while he was allegedly under the influence, at least that's what Nikki claimed.

The sheriff's department told The U.S. Sun that Bam was released on a $50,000 bail and has a court appearance set for March 9.

The U.S. Sun reached out to Bam for comment.

This alleged incident occurred just weeks after TV comedian Steve-O, 48, told Bam that he was preparing for his long-time friend's death.

The two former Jackass co-stars got into a huge tiff on social media where Steve-O claimed that Bam was off the wagon and on a dangerous downward spiral.

The fight began just moments after Steve-O welcomed Bam and his son on stage during the first leg of his comedy tour.

Bam recently had a near-death experience after he suffered multiple seizures following a Covid diagnosis.

Thankfully, the two were able to unite on stage in an emotional union despite Bam being fired from Jackass in 2020 due to failing a drug test.


Bam shared a photo later that night of Johnny Knoxville, himself, and Steve-O that appears to reveal a real rift between the two.

"One arm is a best friend who had my f*****g back all along, another arm is a poser," he wrote in the post.

"A pro creation thief."

He also spoke on co-creator of the Jackass series Jeff Tremain who he says is "too greedy to fit" in the photo.

Bam said he tattooed the phrase "f**k jeff" on his body long ago "because I knew who you were all along."

He ended the fiery caption with "@steveo much love and respect."


After Bam's roast, Steve-O slammed his friend for throwing the opportunity to spend time with his son and accused him of "getting loaded" after the show, in a now-deleted comment.

"You say you want to have a relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen," he wrote in the deleted post, per TMZ.

"I brought you on tour with me in hopes that I could get you to see what's possible for you if you choose recovery.

"I've tried everything I can, but I can't force you to get honest and do the work of recovery."

Steve-O added that he has "braced" himself for the news of Bam's death, and hates that he has to do that.

"You're dying, brother, and it sucks that I can't do anything to save you," the heartbroken friend wrote.

When asked about the deleted comment, Steve-O reportedly told TMZ that he will be there for the former co-star when he actually wishes to achieve sobriety.
