Ex-Jackass star Bam Margera has reportedly been arrested on charges of domestic violence.
As reported by TMZ, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department told the publication that Margera was arrested this past Thursday; police were called to a home in Escondido, CA in regard to a domestic dispute.
Allegedly, as told to TMZ, a woman was kicked by the ex-Jackass star. Margera was arrested and booked with the charge of “corporal injury on a current or former spouse, cohabitant, dating partner or fellow parent.”
Per law enforcement, they say that the alleged victim told police that her “husband” had kicked her.
However, per TMZ’s sources, this alleged victim is not Margera’s wife Nicole Boyd (who recently filed for separation), but actually Margera’s current girlfriend.
Margera was booked in the Vista Detention Facility.
More on this story as it develops.
This past February, news came out that Margera’s wife Nicole Boyd had filed for a legal separation. Per her filing, Boyd cited “irreconcilable differences” which have led to her and Margera’s marriage falling apart. Along with this filing, Boyd is requesting both legal and physical custody of their son but is open to allowing Margera supervised visitations.
While Margera has been struggling with difficulties involving addiction for some time now, the past couple of years of his life has been particularly hard. Recently, Jackass star Steve-O and ex-HIM singer Ville Valo have voiced concerns regarding Margera’s health. Valo has shared that he is concerned over the “monster” that Margera is becoming, and Steve-O expressed that Margera is “dying.”
Margera also recently pulled some stuff on Elvis’ ex-wife Priscilla Presley; he actually upset her so much that, among some recent comments she made about him, she called Margera an “unstable individual.”
