JACKASS star Bam Margera has been arrested for public drunkenness at a Burbank restaurant just weeks after he was taken in for domestic violence, police said.
The pro skater got into an explosive argument with a woman at the California spot as friends beg him to “choose sobriety.”

Officials responded to a call of a disturbance in a Thai food restaurant on Wednesday at about 3.45pm, Burbank police confirmed to The U.S. Sun.
Responding officers arrived to see Margera loudly arguing with a woman and separated the two, officials said.
Footage shared on social media appears to show Margera visibly upset outside the restaurant while chatting with police, TMZ reports.
The outlet also reported that the Jackass star’s estranged wife and son were at the restaurant, but this has yet to be confirmed.
He was still in the Burbank jail as of Wednesday evening.
It comes just weeks after he was arrested for domestic violence after allegedly kicking a woman.
The former Jackass member whose real name is Brandon was taken into police custody after cops received a report of a domestic dispute on Thursday shortly after 5.30am, The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to The U.S Sun.
When police arrived at the Escondido home where the alleged dispute occurred, a woman claimed to the cops that her husband kicked her, according to the sheriff’s office.
Nikki filed for legal separation from Bam on February 14 as her attorney David Glass told TMZ that the separation was due to Bam spending time with their five-year-old son while he was allegedly under the influence.
The sheriff’s department said that Bam was released on a $50,000 bail and had a court appearance set for March 9.
Margera’s antics continue to make headlines as he recently got his son Phoenix’s name tattooed on his face and vowed to be a better father.
The two former Jackass co-stars got into a huge tiff on social media where Steve-O claimed that Bam was off the wagon and on a dangerous downward spiral.
The fight began just moments after Steve-O welcomed Bam and his son on stage during the first leg of his comedy tour.
Thankfully, the two were able to unite on stage in an emotional union despite Bam being fired from Jackass in 2020 due to failing a drug test.
However, the happiness was short-lived as Bam took to Instagram to write out a lengthy post where he called Steve-O a “poser.”
In a now-deleted comment, the friend accused him of “getting loaded” after the show.
“You say you want to have a relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen,” he wrote in the deleted post, per TMZ.
Steve-O added that he has “braced” himself for the news of Bam’s death, and hates that he has to do that.
“You’re dying, brother, and it sucks that I can’t do anything to save you,” the heartbroken friend wrote.
When asked about the deleted comment, Steve-O reportedly told TMZ that he will be there for the former co-star when he actually wishes to achieve sobriety.
