Jackass star Bam Margera wanted by police

Jackass star Brandon “Bam” Margera is wanted by police after he allegedly punched his brother in the face during a “physical confrontation” at their home.

Margera, a US TV personality and former professional skateboarder, fled the Philadelphia property on foot through dense woods before troopers arrived, police said.

Officers were called to the address in Pocopson Township, Chester County, in response to a reported domestic disturbance shortly before 11am local time (4pm UK time) on Sunday.

An investigation found Margera was “involved in a physical confrontation” and the victim “suffered minor injuries”, police said.

Margera’s brother Jesse said the former Jackass star pounded on and kicked his locked bedroom door on the morning of the alleged attack, court documents show.

Jesse Margera also said his brother punched him in the eye, nose and ear during the alleged confrontation in their kitchen.

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

An arrest warrant has been issued and police are looking for Margera.

The 43-year-old is charged with simple assault, harassment, and four counts of “terroristic threats”.
