Bam Margera was reportedly arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in Escondido, California, last week after a woman told police that he had kicked her, according to the celebrity tabloid TMZ.
The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said deputies were called to a residence there around 5:30AM PT on March 2 before Margera was taken into custody, as Page Six echoed. The next day, the Jackass star posted $50,000 bail and was released.
The alleged victim, who was not identified, told police her “husband” had kicked her. But sources informed TMZ that Margera’s estranged wife, Nicole “Nikki” Boyd Margera, was not involved. Last month, it was reported Nikki had filed for separation.

The San Diego County District Attorney said that their office would not file charges in the case, as they “only file charges when they believe they can prove them beyond a reasonable doubt,” as TMZ reported. It’s not clear if any other charges will follow.
In the past, Bam’s behavior has caused concern for his family. In January, the celebrity known for Jackass, Viva La Bam and CKY addressed his history of addiction struggles. Bam said he was “pronounced dead” after being hospitalized with COVID-19 and pneumonia last year. Before that, he was in and out of rehab, and he also entered a 12-month rehab program.
