Bam Margera Arrested for DUI After HE Approached Cops
1/8/2018 7:48 AM PST
We're told Bam drove past CHP officers who were in the middle of stopping someone else, and when he slowed down and spoke briefly to officers ... they detected a strong scent of alcohol.
The officers told the "Jackass" star to pull over, gave him a field sobriety test ... and then booked him for DUI. His bail was set at $15k, which is about $10k more than usual. He was released around 2:30 PM.
This is Bam's first DUI arrest, but he's battled alcohol abuse for years. Just last year, he spoke about embracing sobriety. He and his wife had a son in December.References^ Bam Margera (www.tmz.com)^ Ryan Dunn (www.tmz.com)^ drunk driving in 2011 (www.tmz.com)
