Bam Margera, Who is Supposed to Ref the Bagel Boss vs. Lenny Dykstra Fight, Was Arrested Last Night

I feel like we need to talk about Bam Margera, who is really struggling right now.

The West Chester native and Jackass star signed on to referee the upcoming Lenny Dykstra/Bagel Boss boxing match that will take place in Atlantic City next month, but TMZ reports that he was arrested last night, shortly after bailing on a Los Angeles rehab facility.

TMZ, after the jump:

Bam Margera is behind bars after getting into it with patrons in the bar of a Hollywood hotel — an altercation that ended with his arrest … TMZ has learned.

Bam was booked at 2:30 AM Wednesday by LAPD. Cops tell us they were called to the Luxe Hotel on Sunset after a hotel staffer placed him under citizen’s arrest. Bam refused to leave the premises after talking trash to hotel patrons.

When LAPD officers arrived, Bam didn’t exactly go peacefully. Cops tried to convince him not to make a scene — but he still refused to leave, and argued with an officer. He was arrested for trespassing and is currently being held on $1,000 bail.

If you’ve been paying any attention, Bam has been all over the place recently, much more than normal. He’s been having more problems with substance abuse and told Dr. Phil he would go to rehab, and then got Dr. Phil’s name tattooed on his neck. He also berated an airport employee and went on a 47-post Instagram tirade. Steve-O and other jackass stars, plus friends and family, have been trying to get him help.

I saw Bam a while back at a Trocadero show, sitting in the balcony, and he looked pretty good to me. I can’t remember how long ago it was, but he’s 39 years old now and of course lost his friend Ryan Dunn back in 2011 due to a car crash. Seems like the guy has been through a lot over the past decade or so, so hopefully somebody can reel him in and calm him down before he really truly loses it, or hurts himself.

      He’s a spoiled rich kid who got rich via CKY and Jackass for being stupid and self-destructive, now he’s slowly losing everything because he’s still stupid and self-destructive.

    Dude lived in my neighborhood growing up.

    I had my 4th grade birthday party at the mini golf course they wreck in Jackass 1.

    Since Ryan died he’s been lost :/

    This is not news. Some dumbass idiot’s life is going down the toilet because of his own crappy decisions. This guy is nothing special. Who cares.
