“Jackass” Star Steve-O Arrested in Canada


Steve-O of “Jackass” fame was arrested Sunday at Calgary International Airport on a nearly decade old warrant of assault with a weapon, according to reports.

The 36-year-old stuntman, whose real name is Stephen Gilchrist Glover, was released on $10,000 Canadian cash bail, a local police official told the Calgary Sun.

That’s about $10,191 U.S. at Friday’s conversion rate, according to Yahoo! Finance’s currency converter.

Steve-O’s charges stem from a 2003 incident, according to TMZ, which first reported the arrest.

He’s set to appear back in court in May, the gossip site reported.

The “Dancing with the Stars” alum is now on probation, having pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in 2008, E! News reported. No word on how the new arrest will affect his status.
