Uncle of Bam Margera Held on Sex Charges

Margera, 50, was arrested Friday night after a skateboarding event at a Lakewood mall. He is accused of two incidents of sexual assault on a child, city spokeswoman Stacie Oulton said. She said the charges involved inappropriate touching.

The MTV show "Viva La Bam" focuses largely on Bam Margera playing practical jokes on his parents and uncle, whose dialogue is often unintelligible.

Vincent Margera came to Colorado to film promotional material for ManiaTV.com, which first reported his arrest. ManiaTV.com founder Drew Massey said Margera had finished his work before the arrest.

Bam Margera, a professional skateboarder, was not with his uncle on the trip.

"VIva La Bam" has been one of my favorite shows, for the past three years and big part of that was "Don Vito".

Is very unfortunate that this happen and I hope Vito gets help if this allegations are true.

Ya boy ALdo aka "Young Gun"

HaHa, Looks like Vito got the last laugh, by screwing the little left in that Jackass Bam's carrear. Who the hell is he anyway? Now hopefully we can all forget about that loser family, whose skateboarding offspring, cant act, sing, or do anything funny except play childish pranks on his uncle, But that is the guys bloodline, So really that loser Bam is just making fun of how much of a loser he is going to be in a few years....Ha Ha JUSTICE IS SERVED!

There's a bunch of suspicious things in this article and I for one don't believe the alligations. Unless, he kicked a kid in the nads - which could be considered child sexual assault.

Also, why would the people he was there to film also be the ones who decide to publish the story. I don't care what you say, it's bad publicity to come out and say "Hey we had an event and a kid ended up getting sexually assaulted, come let us tell you about it!"

Innocent until proven guilty.
