Bam Margera's brother claims Jackass star is 'messed up' because of 'meth habit'
| Last updated
Bam Margera's brother has taken to social media in concern for the Jackass star after he went on the run from police.
Bam allegedly beat up his brother Jess Margera and threatened to kill his family and the rest of the people in the house, including his dad Phillip Margera Jr and two other women, according to Philadelphia State Police.
Bam then fled into the woods and hasn't been seen since.
Now, his brother Jess has taken to Twitter to speak out.
Questioning why his brother hasn't yet been located, on Wednesday, 26 April, Jess tweeted: "I mean I can talk to my lightbulbs. My car can back out of the garage and pick me up at the front door. Police should be able to track a phone right? Apparently I’m the a**hole."
A fan of Jess and Bam was quick to offer his support, replying: "Bro, as a lifelong fan of your band and your brother, i really wish from the bottom of my heart that everything turns out ok, I send my love to you and your family and I’ll be checking in to see if there are any updates, stay positive."
Jess replied noting he 'appreciate[s]' the comment and went on to open up about his fears for Bam's mental state.
Jess explained he's 'trying to stay positive' and hailed his brother as 'the sweetest guy when he isn't messed up'.
However, Jess then alleged Bam has developed a 'meth habit' and become 'unrecognisable'.
"I really don’t know what he’s capable of. Seeing him screaming @ at a person that wasn’t there, hallucinating," the tweet continues. "It’s really scary & heartbreaking."
Jess mentioned his brother's alleged 'meth habit' in another tweet too.
He responded to a user who urged him to 'make peace' with Bam: "Make peace? Lol a dude that’s been up on meth for a week and screaming at his shadow on the wall randomly attacked me while I was making a cup of coffee. And was screaming about killing my dad.
"I still don’t even know what he was mad at. This is a one sided meltdown dude."
When questioned as to whether Bam currently has a phone with him which could help track him down, Jess alleged the Jackass star is on the run with his girlfriend and an eight-year-old child.
He said: "His gf has her phone, I’m obviously very worried about bam but I’m extremely worried about that there is an eight yr old child w them.
"I can’t even imagine the environment in that car right now. I hope she’s okay she is the sweetest kid, she doesn’t deserve this unnecessary trauma."
