Bam Margera Claims He Was Robbed At Gunpoint In Colombia

Terrifying!

Bam Margera Claims He Was Robbed At Gunpoint!

Bam Margera had a horrifying experience upon arriving in Colombia.

On Sunday night, the reality TV star claimed he was robbed by an armed taxi driver, sharing the news with his followers on Instagram. Sounding still in shock, he spilled:

“I just arrived in Cartagena alone and I took a taxi—a random one—from the airport to here. And I couldn’t Spanish, they couldn’t speak English, and they translated on their phone for me to read, ‘Empty your wallet,’ as they put a gun on their lap to show it to me. So I did, and I had $500. They let me go. That was weird. Welcome to Colombia!”

You can watch Bam share his story (below):

Bam Margera may have agreed to go to rehab last week, but that doesn’t excuse his dangerous behavior.

In case you hadn’t heard, after the MTV star was pulled over for driving with a cell phone, police gave him a field sobriety test — and he failed.

Now TMZ is reporting the L.A. City Attorney’s Office has officially filed two charges against Bam — driving under the influence and driving with a .08 or higher blood alcohol content.

Because this is the skater’s first offense of this kind, it’s unlikely he’ll face jail time. Thankfully nothing worse happened while he was behind the wheel!

Meanwhile, Bam has been posting on Instagram during his phone privilege time in rehab. Keep up with how it’s going (below): (more…)

Looks like Bam Margera is seeking help.

In case you hadn’t heard, the MTV star who had been working hard at staying sober fell off the wagon; he was arrested Sunday morning for DUI.

Now Bam’s mother, April Margera, and his wife, Nicole, are helping him get to rehab. According to TMZ, the family settled on a facility, and the Jackass alum plans on admitting himself on Friday — so he can honor TV commitments he has through Thursday.

Sounds like a smart course of action — as long as the delay doesn’t keep getting extended…

Innerestingly, TMZ is also reporting Dr. Phil reached out to the troubled skater — and was turned the heck down! Can’t say we blame Bam considering all the rumors we’ve heard recently about how that show treats addicts.

At least we know with that beautiful newborn baby boy at home, Bam has something to focus on while getting sober. Apparently after his arrest the first thing he said was he wanted to be there for Phoenix.

We were shocked to learn on the return of Epicly Later’d on Viceland that Bam Margera, the beloved hard-partying skater from MTV‘s Jackass, once struggled with bulimia.

According to his mother, it was his body image problems, exacerbated by appearing on TV, that led him to drink in the first place, as he tried to emulate his gaunt friend, HIM singer Ville Valo, who preferred alcohol to food.

We also respect Bam and his fam for coming forward now that he’s getting sober.

It’s important for people suffering from these disorders to see they’re not alone. People from all walks of life suffer from eating disorders, not just models and actresses.

Here are a few more celebs who have bravely opened up…

Viva La Bam‘s Don Vito Is In Critical Condition After Suffering From Liver & Kidney Failure

According to Bam Margera‘s mom, April, Viva La Bam alum Don Vito is in dire straights after suffering from liver failure due to a lifetime of excessive drinking and partying.

Video: Bam Grieves At Ryan Dunn Crash Site

For those who don’t know, Don is April’s brother-in-law and Bam’s uncle. The colorful man appeared on many episodes of the show and his unintelligible dialogue often required subtitles.

D.V. collapsed at his Pennsylvania home on Tuesday and remained in a coma until Friday. While the former reality star made some phone calls from his hospital bed upon waking up, his organs continue to fail.

This hospitalization is just one of the many scandals the uncle has faced over the years — in 2006 Don was convicted of fondling two 12-year-old girls at an autograph signing event. The partier didn’t face any jail time but he was sentenced to ten years of “serious probation” in addition to alcohol education classes.

We’ll keep you updated if any other developments arise.
