'Jacka**' Star on Psychiatric Hold After Cops Track His Phone, Find Bizarre Scene: Report


“Jacka**” star Bam Margera was found and placed in a psychiatric hold Sunday in Los Angeles, according to reports.

TMZ reported the Los Angeles Police Department was able to find Margera by tracking his cell phone. He just so happened to be at Trejo’s Tacos — a restaurant owned by actor Danny Trejo.

Before Margera was located, his brother Jesse, took to Twitter on Sunday to ask fans for help with finding his whereabouts. At that time he was in the process of trying to get the LAPD to “ping [Bam’s] phone.”

A few hours later, Jesse Margera posted a follow-up on the situation.

“They found him safe,” the older brother wrote with the prayer hands emoji. “[H]e texted me and my parents at 6 am this morning saying he loves us he loves Phoenix and he is ‘at peace’ and that he took enough pills to stop his heart.

Will Bam Margera be able to turn his life around?
The troubled star has had a string of incidents over the past few months. Just days before Bam was detained for a psychiatric evaluation, he posted a video to social media, where he demanded to see his son Phoenix.

The troubled star is currently going through a divorce with his now-ex Nikki Boyd.

He claimed he would “smoke crack with the bums down at the boardwalk until I’m dead unless you deliver me f***ing Phoenix.”

In March of this year, TMZ obtained video of Margera confronting Boyd in a Burbank, California, restaurant over not being able to see his 5-year-old son.

He was later arrested for public intoxication.

The “Viva La Bam” star had a very public falling out with his co-stars of the “Jacka**” franchise after he was removed from the last film.

In a 2022 interview with Variety, co-star Johnny Knoxville said, “I love Bam. I know that a lot has happened. I just want him to get well for himself and his family. I love the guy, and I want him to get well and stay well.”

At the time, Steve-O, who has now been sober for 15 years, stated, “Bam had so many interventions. He was locked up in so many rehabs. By the time we were making this ‘Jack***’ movie, ‘Jack*** 4,’ there was just nothing … You know, they thought, ‘Maybe if we try this. You can be in the movie if you get healthy and stay sober.'”

“[E]ven still, he just didn’t have the power to stay sober and be healthy,” Steve-O added.
