‘Jackass’ actor and stuntman Steve-O was arrested in Canada over the weekend, but the incident that led to the arrest occured 8 years ago!
When Steve-O arrived at the Calgary International Airport on Sunday, he was stopped by customs after officials noticed he had an outstanding warrant out for his arrest.
Steve-O, whose real name is Steve Glover, “was taken down to our arrest processing centre yesterday and appeared before a justice of the pace and released on a $10,000 cash bail,” a police spokesperson told the Calgary Sun newspaper Monday.
According to TMZ, the incident happened back in 2003.
We’re told the warrant was issued back in 2003 — for an incident in which Steve-O allegedly attacked somebody with an unknown object. So far, the identity of the victim is unclear.
Steve-O was placed behind bars for a short while — before going in front of a judge. He was eventually released on $10,000 Canadian ($10,216.60 U.S.) bail … which the actor had to pay IN CASH.
Steve-O is due back in court in May.
He was booked to do his stand-up comedy act at the Laugh Shop Comedy Club in Calgary for five shows from March 24 to 26.
