Jack­ass leg­end Bam nicked for driv­ing p*ssed

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

JACK­ASS star Bam Marg­era was nicked for drink-driv­ing af­ter ap­proach­ing copss who smelt booze on his breath.

The former Viva La Bam star ( above), 38, was ar­rested on Sun­day morn­ing af­ter driv­ing past po­lice al­ready in the process of stop­ping some­one else, and slow­ing down to speak with them.

Of­fi­cers are said to have de­tected “a strong scent of al­co­hol” on Marg­era and gave him a so­bri­ety test.

Marg­era has made no se­cret of his struggle with al­co­hol abuse, though late last year the star opened up about over­com­ing his old habits and be­com­ing sober.

The mar­ried re­al­ity star re­vealed that at his worst he would be­gin drink­ing im­me­di­ately af­ter wak­ing up.

He said: “At its worst, I would prob­a­bly just wake up around 11am and in­stantly start drink­ing vodka. By the end of the night, I would prob­a­bly have 10 pints worth of it.”
