Firefighters end ‘Jackass’ star Steve-O’s billboard stunt


Prankster Steve-O was physically removed from a Hollywood billboard by firefighters on Thursday (August 13, 2020) after taping himself to the ad space to promote his new comedy special.

The Jackass star documented the sky-high stunt above North Cahuenga Boulevard and assured fans there was “zero chance” of him falling to a crippling fate.

The famous stuntman then told devotees, “It’s important to me that we not waste any valuable city resources on this'” minutes before Los Angeles Fire Department officials arrived at the scene to ‘rescue’ the funnyman.

“LAFD is assisting law enforcement at an apparent single patient behavioral emergency, one person secured to a billboard,” spokesman Brian Humphrey wrote in a public safety alert.

Steve-O was uninjured during the incident and faces no criminal charges.

The stunt was staged to call attention to his new project, Gnarly.
