Some people manage to avoid jail time by going to rehab and pledging to straighten up their act. Others go to rehab on their own– without the threat of jail time– get released and find themselves going to jail anyway. Guess which one happened to Bam Margera?
After a series of public disturbances, arguments, and unbecoming behavior, Margera’s loved ones had a series of conversations that ended with the reality star checking into rehab, with the help of Dr. Phil. But he bailed on the plan pretty quickly, and ended up in a fight at a bar at 2am in Los Angeles that led to his arrest. It starts weird, and stays weird. First, someone at the hotel placed him under citizen’s arrest when Margera caused a disturbance and refused to vacate the premises. Later, the cops arrive, and get confrontational with Bam.
TMZ posted video of a lobby standoff with the cops. She says in the video, “This is not a f**king reality TV show. I know you’re fresh out of rehab, so let’s get your s**t together.”
Weirder still is the reason BAM won’t leave, which you can see in the video.
Well Bam, you said you needed Dr. Phil’s help but then checked out got loaded and the cops had to drag you to jail. Other then that, he’s great.
