Why was Bam Margera arrested?
Bam Margera has been in trouble with the law several times over the years, but his latest arrest stems from an alleged altercation between him and an unidentified woman.
The alleged victim told authorities that he kicked her, but at this time, additional details have not been released.
Margera was booked into the Vista Detention Facility and then released after posting his $50,000 bail, according to TMZ.
Who is Bam Margera?
Margera is a former professional skateboarder, stunt performer, television personality, and filmmaker.
He later told TMZ: “What’s the point of a five million dollar contract that I have to walk on eggshells and jump through your hoops — which is already impossible — to obey if I’m dead?”
Margera insists that the Jackass team wronged him, but in an interview with GQ, Knoxville denied the claims, revealing that the team just wants him to be “happy and healthy.”
“We want Bam to be happy and healthy and get the help he needs,” he told the outlet.
“We tried to push that along. I think that’s all I really want to say about it.”
Since being fired, Margera has stayed out of the spotlight.

Is Bam Margera married?
Law enforcement officials told TMZ that the alleged victim referred to Margera as her “husband” but sources told the outlet that she is not his estranged wife, Nikki Boyd.
The alleged victim is reportedly a new girlfriend.
She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce and listed their breakup date as September 14, 2023, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.
“Nikki Margera felt compelled to file for legal separation from her husband, Bam Margera, due to his continuing drug and alcohol abuse, erratic behavior, and due to his failure to provide support for her and their son,” Boyd’s attorney, David Glass, said in a statement to PEOPLE.
“Nikki has put everything she has into trying to get Bam to stay sober, and to trying to preserve her family.”
Prior to their split, Margera and Boyd welcomed 5-year-old son Phoenix Wolf.
