Bam Margera has been arrested by cops over domestic violence allegation
It has been reported by the media outlet TMZ, that the television personality and stunt performer was arrested by the cops for allegedly kicking his girlfriend during a domestic violence dispute.
The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department told the publication that the deputies received a call from a woman alleging Margera kicked her. The police authorities were called to a residence in Escondido, Calif. at around 5 a.m. on Thursday.
However, the alleged victim who has not revealed her real identity as of now told the law enforcement officials that ‘her husband’ kicked her. A couple of sources have informed the media outlet that Bam’s estranged wife Nicole Boyd was not involved in the case.
Shortly afterward, the Bam’s Bad Ass Game Show star was taken into custody by the police authorities. The very next day, he posted a $50,000 bail and was released from custody. The news of Margera’s arrest comes nearly one month after Nicole filed for legal separation from him.
When did Bam Margera and his now estranged wife Nicole Boyd part ways?
For those of you who are unaware, let us share with you, Bam and his estranged wife Nicole Boyd started dating in the year 2012. The two of them tied the knot in the year 2013. They exchanged their vows on October 5, 2013, in Iceland.
Last month, Margera’s wife Nicole filed for legal separation from the former MTV star. The pair pulled the plug on their romance after 10 years of marriage. At that time, TMZ reported that Nicole cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split in their divorce papers.
Nicole has asked the court for both legal as well as physical custody of their son, Phoenix. As of right now, their son is 5 years old. The pair welcomed their son after 4 years of getting married. Apart from this, she will allow Bam to get supervised visitation of their son. She is also requesting the court for spousal support.
Throughout the course of their marriage, the couple has had their fair share of ups and downs as Margera’s battles with substance abuse continued to play out in the public. Because of Bam’s substance abuse, Nicole filed for full custody of their son in 2021. At that time, she refrained from filing for divorce from Margera.
In the year 2018, Bam was sent to rehab after he was arrested by the cops for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) in California, and from that point in, he has been in and out of treatment facilities.
