The Jackass star was detained by police in Los Angeles on Sunday evening (09Aug15) after he clambered up a 100 foot (30 metre)-high crane with an inflatable whale.

He documented his stunt in a series of videos which he posted online as police officers raced to the scene.

They eventually managed to coax him down from the crane and he was arrested on suspicion of charges including trespassing.

He spent the night behind bars before being released on Monday (10Aug15) on $5,000 (£3,125) bail. Steve-O, real name Stephen Glover, 41, is due to appear in court in L.A. on 31 August (15).

The stunt is the funnyman's latest protest against the SeaWorld parks, which have come under fire amid allegations of animal mistreatment.
