- An arrest warrant has been issued for Jackass star Brandon ‘Bam’ Margera, 43
- Pennsylvania State Police reported that an alleged victim said they got into a physical altercation with the pro skater and suffered minor injuries
- When the police arrived on the scene, Margera had already fled into the woods
A manhunt is underway in Pennsylvania for Jackass star Brandon “Bam” Margera, who police say assaulted an unnamed victim.
Pennsylvania State Police officials have said so TMZ troopers responded to a reported disturbance around 11 a.m. Sunday morning near Margera’s $1.1 million Pocopson Township castle, where an alleged victim said they got into a physical altercation with the 43-year-old pro skater and suffered minor injuries as a result .
But when the police arrived on the scene, Margera had already fled to a nearby forest area and has not yet been located.
A warrant has now been issued for Margera’s arrest, charging him with four misdemeanors of terrorist threat with intent to terrorize another, one count of simple assault and a final court charge of harassment while another has undergone physical contact.
The charges are coming several weeks after Margera was arrested in California for public intoxication after getting into a shouting match with an unidentified woman at a Thai restaurant in Burbank.

Video of that confrontation, filmed by comedian Evan Breen, showed the former pro skateboarder entering and exiting the restaurant after police arrived.
At the request of an officer, Margera sat on the floor in the parking lot, and although his conversation with the officer could not be heard, he could be seen waving his arms and gesticulating wildly.
The arrest may have been preceded by some sort of family drama, as Margera’s estranged wife Nikki Boyd and their five-year-old child Phoenix were both at the restaurant, according to a witness at the scene.
However, the police did not clarify whether he had an argument with his ex or whether it was another woman.
The sources added that Margera would be forced to pay $500 to get an early bail unless he chooses to stay behind bars until he is sober again.
Earlier that month, Margera was also arrested on domestic violence charges after California police responded to his home in Escondido, where a woman claimed he kicked her.
The alleged victim was not named, but she was reportedly Margera’s girlfriend, Jessica, and not his ex. It is unclear if she is the victim in the most recent case.
Margera was eventually released on $50,000 bail, though the local district attorney said no charges would be brought against him.
The search for the Jackass star comes just a month after he was arrested for public intoxication at a Thai restaurant in Burbank, California.
