Steve-O From Jackass Is Facing Criminal Charges!
Serious issues aren't the first thing that come to mind when you think of Jackass star Steve-O.
But the MTV alum took it to the streets in Hollywood earlier this month to protest against animal cruelty at SeaWorld and is now facing five criminal charges.
The 41-year-old daredevil climbed a 100 foot crane before lighting fireworks and inflating a balloon printed with, "SeaWorld Sucks", in response to the 2013 documentary 'Blackfish'.
The obvious commotion that saw a large crowd form on Sunset Boulevard was seen as a stunt that created a "false emergency" by the city of Los Angeles office. He also will be charged for use of unregistered fireworks, storing fireworks without a permit, possession of fireworks without a permit and trespassing, said office spokesman Frank Mateljan.
According to The Guardian, over 80 firefighters, five ambulances and a helicopter were sent to the scene stretching city resources thin and causing city officials to demand restitution.
Steve-O's arraignment will be held on August 31.
