Bam Margera is behind bars with patrons in the bar at a Hollywood hotel bar, and this video of his arrest is strange and, frankly, sad … when you consider him in rehab today.
Bam was booked at 2:30 AM Wednesday by the LAPD. Police tell us they were called to the Luxe Hotel at sunset after a hotel staff had placed him under citizen's arrest. Bam refused to leave the area after talking trash to hotel patrons.
TMZ captured this video of Bam crashing into the center of the lobby during a standoff with the fist officer at the scene. He tried to convince her to get up and go in peace – warning that he had plenty of backup on the way – but Bam remained seated.
The official told Bam, "This is not an af ** king reality TV show. I know you're new to rehab, so let's not join your s ** t." Bam spins a strange story with a couple of customers at the bar – one of their wives hired him to catch him cheating … and he stuck with that even when police arrived.
He was later arrested for the offense and is currently being held on $ 1,000 bail.
The bust came on Bam's heels telling Dr. Phil he is going to rehab. TMZ broke the story … Bam agreed to get treatment last week after an intense session with Dr. Phil where Bam's wife is, Nikki and his mother apologize to him about his substance abuse. .
We are told that Bam made a check at a treatment facility but was on bail for days. On Tuesday, he posted a video of himself getting the name of Dr. Phil got on his neck, and thanked him for trying to get him help.
Bam is still behind bars today and his bail is set at $ 1,000.  Originally Published – 6:43 AM PT
