“Jackass” star Bam Margera did not have an easy Sunday morning — he spent it in jail after being arrested for DUI.

According to a rep for the California Highway Patrol, officers observed Margera on his phone while driving and pulled him over. The CHP says once the officers got close to Margera’s car, they smelled alcohol and conducted a field sobriety … which eventually led to his arrest.

Margera was arrested at 7:53 AM and booked into jail at 10:06 AM. He was released at 2:37 PM (just in time to start watching the Golden Globes red carpet!) after posting $15,000 bail.

He and his wife Nicole welcomed their first child, Phoenix Wolf Margera, just two weeks ago.

Margera’s brother, Josh, told Page Six, “He’s with a friend out there and we’re trying to see if he wants to go to rehab or anything …We’re trying to help him from across the country.”
