Jackass Star Arrested For Weapon Possession

JACKASS: THE MOVIE star BAM MARGERA was arrested for unlawful possession of a dangerous weapon on Friday (03MAR06), after trying to pass through a security check-point at LAX airport in Los Angeles with brass knuckles. Margera, who has previously been romantically linked with singer JESSICA SIMPSON, was released the next morning (04MAR06) after posting $20,000 (GBP12,000) bond. The star, who admits to being "blatantly drunk" during the incident, says, "I met up with some people from Island Def Jam (Records) and went to a party at the Roosevelt Hotel. "At some point they ended up giving me a pair of brass knuckles as a gift. "I just tossed them in my bag and then showed up drunk at the airport to catch a flight home." The Jackass star was stopped by security, caused a scene and was subsequently arrested. He tells MTV News, "They booked me and took me to this small-a** cell with this glue-huffing Mexican and some 50-year-old homeless guy. "I'm mad at myself because I think that if I wasn't drunk at the airport I could've weaseled my way out of this whole thing, but I was slurring my words. "Sometimes I'm an idiot."

I think Bam gets a bad rap for the people he associates with, and if he keeps them at bay then theese situations would not occur. I love Bam and would hate for him to become "Public Enemy #1" and I hope that the authorities realize that Bam is no threat, and they drop the charges.
