Her attorney David Glass told TMZ that they’ve been trying to work Pam into getting regular visits for their baby but since it’s so contingent on him staying sober and treating Nikki with respect, it’s not quite happening.
This follows the previous TV personality – who dealt with substance abuse issues and Violent behavior in recent years – got into an argument with a woman in the restaurant, law enforcement sources said TMZ.
Police were reportedly called around 3:45 p.m. to a Thai restaurant, and Margera was allegedly in a shouting match with the woman that continued to escalate after the officers arrived.
Despite police intervention, Margera allegedly could not control himself, so he was arrested and booked on a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication.
In a video of the confrontation filmed by comedian Evan Brin, the former professional skateboarder is seen running back into the restaurant and then out again after the police arrive.
At the request of an officer, he sat on the ground in the parking lot, and although his conversation with the officer could not be heard, he waved his arms and made violent gestures.
The arrest may have been preceded by some sort of family drama, as Margera’s estranged wife Nikki Boyd and their five-year-old baby Phoenix were at the restaurant, according to a witness at the scene.
However, the police did not clarify if he was arguing with his ex-wife, or if it was another woman.
