The former MTV star Brandon “Bam” Margera is wanted for arrest after a reported disturbance in Pocopson Township. According to court documents, Margera’s brother Jesse Margera reported that he was punched in the eye, nose, and ear, followed by Bam kicking his bedroom door while also leaving a threatening note signed with his name. The State Police advised that Margera then fled off into a wooded area and hasn’t been found yet, an arrest warrant has been issued out of District Court in Kennett Square. Margera, a Chester County native, has been on the spotlight since 2000, appearing on the shows like “Jackass,” and continuing on to work on a list of other shows and films.
It is not uncommon for celebrities to get in trouble with the law, and Bam Margera is no exception. Many of his fans will know the former MTV star for his outlandish stunts and pranks, both on and off camera. But, it’s important to remember that violence is never an acceptable response to anger. It’s unfortunate that the altercation took place between two siblings, who probably had a relatively great relationship before this incident. It’s a reminder of how conflict resolution is critical in finding an amicable solution without resorting to violence. Let’s hope that Margera will turn himself in to the authorities and face the music for his actions.
