Bam Margera is behind bars after getting nabbed by the LAPD at 11:56 Tuesday night, Page Six reports. The troubled star was placed under citizen’s arrest then booked early Wednesday morning.
Margera was reportedly busted for trespassing shortly after leaving a rehab facility that Dr. Phil McGraw helped arrange. He reportedly refused to leave the Luxe Hotel on Sunset and caused a scene.
Margera’s bail was set at $1,000. “He doesn’t need a lawyer to get out,” his dad, Phil, told Page Six on Wednesday. “He was trespassing. I don’t know all the details, so I better not speculate.”
“He’s allowed to get out on his own. He was drunk so they’re gonna let him sober up and then he can leave on his own when they say it’s time. That’s all I truly know.”
Sources told TMZ that he is off his bipolar meds, which triggered this latest strange behavior.
Margera begged Dr. Phil for help on social media this month, and after meeting with him agreed to a fourth stint in rehab.
