The latest update regarding Bam Margera comes to us from TMZ. The report claims that the Viva La Bam star recently came into contact with police officers on Florida while in a stay at the Don CeSar Resort Hotel in St. Pete Beach. They were called when for Margera reportedly being “emotionally distressed” at the hotel, and ended up picking him up and transporting him to a rehabilitation facility in the back of the cop car. There were no new charges filed against him, with the TV personality instead hopefully getting some much-needed help.
This is just the latest example of Bam Margera making headlines, with the Jackass icon seemingly going through a difficult time with multiple challenges. As previously mentioned, he’s been in the midst of a legal battle with his former collaborators over Jackass 4, and how he wasn’t included in the cast. The drama has elevated to the point that the director filed a restraining order against Margera. It remains to be seen how this latest encounter with police and trip to rehab has an effect on these proceedings.
