Jackass star Bam Margera was escorted off a plane after an altercation with an airport police officer. The reason stated was that he was too drunk to fly. As a result, airport security has to take the step.
The skateboarder was in Atlanta, Georgia. He told the airport staff that he had 50 shots of tequila. Afterward, he even called them ”idiots’ to believe him. The 39-year-old posted a video of this incident over his Instagram account:
Margera later posted a video telling that he was flying to Austin, Texas for an event. He also revealed that he was going to meet his therapist before the event.
THE PUBLIC BREAKDOWN
Bam is going through a very public breakdown right now. All of which started with his Instagram posts, which were disturbing.
Bam has battled addiction issues previously and had spent time in rehab. He has been to rehab thrice. Out of which the latest was in January. But he quit after ten days. He also had a public nervous breakdown.
In recent weeks, he has been insulting and accusing his wife Nicole or Nikki and his mother April all over his social networking account. He has also been publicly insulting fellow professional skater and CKY crew Brandon Novak.
THE REACTION OF CELEBRITIES
Chris Pontius one of the fellow Jackass stars left a comment on one of Bam’s posts: ” To ever ever asking the Jackass guys to help Bam, we are trying and have been, but no matter how loudly help screams his name, it’s up to him to want to be better and not somebody who publically degrades his wife and mother and take accountability for it. I wouldn’t write this publicly, but we all get told to go help Bam so much. I might as well answer.”
Despite all the fuss, the reason behind his behavior is still unknown.
