Bam Margera on the run from police after 'beating up brother and threatening to kill family'

Bam Margera on the run from police after 'beating up brother and threatening to kill family'

The Jackass star allegedly fled into the woods after the attack

Bam Margera is wanted by police after he allegedly beat up his brother and threatened to kill his family.

Pennsylvania State Police claim the former Jackass star threatened several people, including his dad Phillip Margera Jr., and his brother, Jesse Margera, who he is said to have punched in the face.

It led to an arrest warrant being issued for the former Jackass star over the weekend.

According to cops, who spoke to Bam's alleged victims, he started banging on his brother's door at around 8am on Sunday (23 April).

He is then said to have left a threatening letter behind, which read: "If you even f***ing think of calling the police on me I will officially f*** you up."

After going downstairs, Jesse claimed that he found Bam urinating in his kitchen sink, with a fight breaking out.

Bam Margera allegedly attacked his brother.

During the altercations, Bam allegedly struck his brother several times around the head, warning: "I'll kill you. I'll put a bullet in your head."

He is then said to have threatened to kill everyone in the house, which included his dad and two other women, before running off into the woods.

The 43-year-old is now facing charges of simple assault, harassment, and terroristic threats 'with intention to terrorize another'.

Police are actively searching for Bam, and urge anyone with information that could help to come forward.

In a statement yesterday (24 April), the authorities said: "On April 23 at 11:00am, troopers from the PSP Avondale Station responded to the 400 block of Hickory Hill Road, in Pocopson Township, Chester County, for a reported disturbance.

"The investigation determined Brandon 'Bam' Margera, age 43, of Thornton, PA, was involved in a physical confrontation with the victim, who suffered minor injuries.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Brandon Margera.

"[...] An arrest warrant out of District Court 15-3-04 in Kennett Square has been issued for Margera. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact PSP Avondale at the non-emergency number of 610-268-2022."

This incident marks a growing list of times Margera has come into contact with the police in recent months.

Just last month he was arrested and taken into custody over an alleged domestic violence incident with a woman.

The stunt performer was also taken to the Vista Detention Facility on a 'charge of corporal injury on a current or former spouse, cohabitant, dating partner or fellow parent'.

Bam's former co-stars have previously spoken out in concern for the skateboarder and his mental wellbeing amid his battles with addiction.

Earlier this year, Steve-O responded to an Instagram post by Margera, which saw him attacking Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine.

He wrote: "You’re dying, brother, and it sucks that I can’t do anything to save you."
