Bam Margera Arrested for Domestic Violence, Accused of Kicking His Girlfriend

The ‘Jackass’ star has been booked into the Vista Detention Facility after allegedly being involved in a domestic dispute with a woman, who is reportedly not his wife but his current girlfriend.

AceShowbizBam Margera‘s problems keep piling up following his latest relapse. The professional skateboarder, who has been slapped with divorce by his wife, has recently been arrested for domestic violence.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department tells TMZ that the former “Jackass” star was arrested last Thursday, March 2 around 5:30 A.M. after deputies were called to a home in Escondido, California for a domestic dispute. He was reportedly involved in an altercation with a woman who is not his estranged wife Nikki Boyd, but his current girlfriend.

The woman, whose identity has yet to be released, told deputies that Bam kicked her during their dispute. He was subsequently arrested and booked into the Vista Detention Facility on a charge of corporal injury on a current or former spouse, cohabitant, dating partner or fellow parent.

Bam has been released from custody after posting $50,000 bail the day after his arrest. A spokesperson for the District Attorney’s office confirms no charges will be filed in the case from their office, as they only file charges when they believe they can prove them beyond a reasonable doubt.

It’s unclear if any charges will be filed elsewhere. Bam has not spoken up on the report of his arrest.

Back in 2022, Bam checked into a rehab center under court order only to flee the facility. After being gone for a week, he returned with police escort, but was reported missing again for the second time. After he was found, he checked into a new treatment facility, but was fleeing rehab again and was spotted at a bar.

In December, the 43-year-old was hospitalized and put on a ventilator in a San Diego ICU due to pneumonia and COVID-19. Following his release from the hospital, he spoke on “Steve-O‘s Wild Ride!” podcast about how serious his condition was.

“I basically was pronounced dead on December 8th, did not know that I had like gnarly Covid, my body was shutting down and I went into four seizures,” he explained. “My body was shutting down and I went into four seizures, each one lasting 10 to 20 minutes and on the fourth one, I bit my tongue so hard, it was nearly falling off. It was swollen and puffy and wouldn’t fit in my mouth and I was drinking infected blood, which gave me pneumonia as well.”

Bam woke up five days later thinking he had only been in the hospital for a couple of hours. He later joined Steve on the latter’s comedy tour, before they had a fallout in February due to Bam’s Instagram post.

In the same month, Bam’s wife Nikki filed for legal separation and spousal support, citing irreconcilable differences. She claimed that he was behaving inappropriately while spending time with their son, leading Nikki to believe Bam was under the influence.
