Jackass star wanted by police
Jackass star Brandon “Bam” Margera is wanted by police after he allegedly punched his brother in the face during a “physical confrontation” at their home.
Margera, a US TV personality and former professional skateboarder, fled the Philadelphia property on foot through dense woods before troopers arrived, police said.
Officers were called to the address in Pocopson Township, Chester County, in response to a reported domestic disturbance shortly before 11am local time (4pm UK time) on Sunday.
An investigation found Margera was “involved in a physical confrontation” and the victim “suffered minor injuries”, police said.
Margera’s brother Jesse said the former Jackass star pounded on and kicked his locked bedroom door on the morning of the alleged attack, court documents show.
Jesse Margera also said his brother punched him in the eye, nose and ear during the alleged confrontation in their kitchen.
He also says he found a threatening handwritten note signed “Bam”, according to a police statement.

Margera was one of the original stars of Jackass, the MTV series that featured Johnny Knoxville and his friends carrying out stunts and pranks on each other and the public.
He appeared in subsequent Jackass TV series and films but was reportedly issued with a temporary restraining order in 2021 by the director of the franchise.
His relationship with the franchise had become increasingly strained after he was fired during the production of the fourth instalment of the Jackass movies for refusing to go to his contractually-obliged rehab.
Margera launched legal action against Paramount Pictures, Jackass director Jeff Tremaine and troupe co-creators Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze, alleging he was illegally dismissed.
