Jackass star Bam Margera has checked into rehab following his DUI arrest over the weekend (06-07Jan18).
The TV stuntman was reportedly busted when he slowed down to chat to police officers engaged in a traffic stop with another motorist. Detecting alcohol on Bam’s breath, the California cops insisted he undergo a field sobriety test, which he failed.
He was booked and released on Sunday afternoon (07Jan18) and now he has checked into an alcohol abuse treatment center.
“Thanks to @johnnyschillereff of element skateboards for checking me into alcohol rehab today,” Margera wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of himself and a group of friends. “No phones here, see y’all soon.”
It is unclear which treatment center Margera has checked into, but earlier this week (ends12Jan18), his mother April revealed to the New York Post’s Page Six he was heading to a facility in Los Angeles.
