Bam Margera Pleads Not Guilty to DUI

On Wednesday, Jackass and Viva La Bam star Brandon Cole (Bam) Margera entered a not guilty plea to his DUI charges from last month. Margera was charged with his first DUI on January 7th. He is facing one count of driving under the influence and one count of driving with a BAC of 0.08 or higher.

California Highway Patrol officers pulled Margera over last month in Los Angeles when they saw him driving while on his phone. Then, they observed a strong smell of alcohol and conducted a field sobriety test. Officers arrested Margera for an alleged DUI. The reality star was released later that day after posting $15,000 bail.

A few weeks after his arrest, Margera shared on social media that he had checked himself into rehab. Reportedly, he has now checked out of the facility.

On Wednesday, Margera had a court date for the charges from his January arrest. His father, Phil Margera, said that Bam “didn’t have to appear. Just his attorney appeared.”

According to a Los Angeles County court docket, Margera’s next court date is set for March 12 for a pretrial hearing.
