Jackass star surrenders to Pennsylvania police over alleged assault, harassment and terroristic threats

Jackass star Brendan ‘Bam’ Margera, who had been wanted by police after allegedly attacking his brother on Sunday at his Philadelphia home, has surrendered to Pennsylvania State Police.

The 43-year-old was arraigned and pleaded not guilty, according to his lawyer, Michael van der Veen.

He was charged with simple assault, harassment and four counts of terroristic threats

“The wild rumors regarding his behavior this week are absolutely false. He is in good health and in good spirits,” Mr van der Veen said in a written statement.

According to court records, Margera has been released on $50,000 (£40,000) unsecured bail and must not have any contact with his brother, father or two other people who were in the house at the time of the alleged attack.

He must also stay away from the property in Pocopson Township, Chester County.

State police were called to the home in response to a reported domestic disturbance. Margera’s brother Jesse said the star had kicked in his locked bedroom door, then punched him in the eye, nose and ear.

He also claims to have found a threatening handwritten note signed “Bam”, according to a police statement.

Margera, who also starred in MTV reality series Viva La Bam, reportedly ran from the home through dense woods before officers arrived.
