Professional skateboarder and stunt performer Bam Margera was arrested on Sunday, January 7, in Los Angeles for driving under the influence, TMZ reports.

According to the site, Margera approached California Highway Patrol officers while they stopped another driver, and as he slowed down, cops saw him on his phone while driving, and told him to pull over. During speaking to Margera, the authorities sensed a strong smell of alcohol, then proceeded to give the Jackass star a sobriety test.

Eventually getting booked for a DUI, upon discovering that he had alcohol in his system, Margera’s bail was set at $15,000 USD, and he was then released shortly after 2:30 p.m., according to documents obtained by TMZ.
