- Margera is wanted for arrest in connection with an altercation that occurred Sunday at his home, a castle.
Pennsylvania police are searching for "Jackass" star Brandon "Bam" Margera following an alleged altercation between himself and an unidentified person on Sunday in Pocopson Township.
According to a press release issued by the Pennsylvania State Police, the victim sustained minor injuries following the incident. By the time authorities arrived, it said, Margera had already fled the scene by running into the nearby woods and had not been seen since.
The incident occurred on the 400 block of Hickory Hill Road, in Chester County, the same block where Margera lives. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Margera's house is known as Castle Bam and he bought the property for $1.2 million.
Per court records seen by Insider, Margera is charged with four misdemeanor counts of terroristic threats with intent to terrorize another, one count of simple assault, and one count of harassment while subjecting another to physical contact.
The 43-year-old skateboarder and filmmaker has been arrested numerous times in recent weeks. In March, Los Angeles police arrested Margera on a public intoxication charge while he and his estranged wife Nikki Boyd along with their 5-year-old son, Phoenix, were dining out. He was released on bail. Margera was also arrested for kicking his girlfriend during a domestic violence incident, which remains under investigation.
In 2021, Margera sued his "Jackass" co-creators Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze, and Jeff Tremaine, along with MTV and Paramount Studios after he was fired from "Jackass Forever" for failing to attend rehab and remain sober during the production of the film. Margera later dropped the suit.
"We want Bam to be happy and healthy and get the help he needs," Knoxville told USA Today at the time. "We tried to push that along. I think that's all I really want to say about it."
Insider reached out to Margera for comment on the latest incident, but didn't immediately hear back.
