Bam Margera was arrested at a hotel in Los Angeles late Tuesday night after he showed up drunk and refused to leave.
According to the LAPD, Margera arrived at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel on Wednesday night and asked for a room. When a hotel employee informed him they had no rooms available, Margera allegedly demanded one and refused to leave until he was given one.
A hotel employee called police around 11:15 PM as Margera sat in the lobby. When cops arrived, they say they found a “highly-intoxicated” Margera and arrested him just before midnight.
He was transported to a nearby jail where he was booked into custody at 2:30 AM on Wednesday.
Margera was charged with a misdemeanor trespassing and is currently being held on $1,000 bail.
An LAPD official tells The Blast that Margera will remain in custody until he sobers up.
As The Blast first reported, Margera had agreed to go to rehab (clearly he is not there) and we were told his family paid a huge part in getting him to agree to go.
The former “Jackass” star agreed to seek help for substance abuse and mental health after sitting down for an interview with Dr. Phil.
The program Margera had agreed to enter is a live-in facility that will aggressively work with him for an extended period of time, which can be anywhere from 60 – 90 days.
Margera had posted about the meeting while with Dr. Phil on his way to treatment, writing, “Dr. Phil is the greatest, he secretly flew out nikki and phoenix wolf, had my mom on standby. Got down to thebroot of the problem and isolated it down with no one interupting eeachother. Pr. Phil “bambis not crazy, he is extremely frustrated with certain issues, ban is not crazy!”
