Did Bam Margera Get Roofied?
Bam Margera is having one terrible summer. First, he was attacked by a bat-weilding woman outside of a bar in June, and now the Jackass star may have had something slipped into his drink.
Margera made headlines earlier this week when he was ejected from New Zealand’s Auckland Airport and detained after showing up at the airport in what police called a “very intoxicated” state. But Margera’s pal, Chad Ginsburg, says that the Jackass and Viva La Bam star might have been unwittingly exposed to the date-rape drug Rohypnol. Ginsburg, who performs in the band CKY with Margera’s brother Jesse and was the first to confirm Margera’s Auckland detention, Tweeted yesterday,
“Bam finally made it to our gig in perth, turns out he was f*cking roofied at one of our shows in nz and was incapacitated!”
Margera was turned away from the airport after reportedly acting obnoxiously toward passengers and staff. According to an airport spokesperson, there were “concerns about letting them fly in that state.”
In June, Bam was attacked with a bat by a woman outside of a Pennsylvania bar. He was hospitalized and released days later. The skater-turned-TV/movie star was also hospitalized last July following a “possible overdose,” though his mother April claimed that her son was merely “severely dehydrated.”
