Jackass star Bam Margera is reportedly heading to rehab following his DUI arrest over the weekend (06-07Jan18).
The TV stuntman was reportedly busted when he slowed down to chat to police officers engaged in a traffic stop with another motorist. Detecting alcohol on Bam’s breath, the California cops insisted he undergo a field sobriety test, which he failed.
He was booked and released on Sunday afternoon and now Margera’s mother, April, has revealed her son has agreed to spend a little time in rehab in Los Angeles.
“How long he stays is to be determined but he’ll want to keep that private,” she tells the New York Post’s Page Six. “He feels a lot better. He had a bad night. He’s embarrassed by it. He’s mad at himself for being stupid. Now he just wants to pick up the pieces and move forward for himself and for his family.”
The arrest was Bam’s first for DUI, but he’s battled alcohol abuse for years and spoke about embracing sobriety months ago after revealing he was set to become a dad. The wild man’s wife Nicole Boyd gave birth to the couple’s first child, son Phoenix Wolf Margera, just before Christmas.
“Don’t be so quick to judge other people,” April adds. “Everybody has a different story and everybody is going through different things. It’s not an instant fix. He’s been seeing therapists.
“There are going to be hiccups when you’re battling addiction. You’re not going to be 100 per cent successful the first time… He’s learning as he goes.”
