Don Vito Collapses after Conviction

10/31/2007 3:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don Vito has been found guilty of two counts of sexual assault on a child. He was acquitted on one count.

Vito, real name Vincent Margera, who is Bam Margera's outrageous uncle on MTV's "Viva La Bam," was accused of fondling three girls during a public appearance at a mall in a Denver suburb. The victims of the sexual assault were 12 and 13. After the verdict was read, Don collapsed to the floor and yelled, "Just kill me now!" Deputies restrained him -- and took his ass off to jail.

The verdict on those counts is still pending. Vito will be sentenced on December 20.

This is an excellent example of the sense of entitlement some of these celebrities have. Bam Margera and his crowd are idiots on parade and Don Vito is a prime example of the moronic behavior these guys exhibit. I cannot imagine why everyone enjoyed watching them in the first place. Immaturity building on immaturity and finally... FINALLY... someone is being held accountable for their stupidity and cruelty to one another and those in the public.

This is just another example of someone on TV thinking they are above the law.
I think we need to keep the kids well being in mind. As far as these kids (12 and 13) telling someone they are 18: COME ON GET REAL! Is this guy that stupid that he couldn't tell?
As for the extra 12 felonys...I am willing to accept that stressors my have lead to drinking, BUT DRUGS: NO!!! and hanging around children when he was told not to. COME ON, THESE WERE CLEAR CASES OF OUT RIGHT DEFIENCE.
This guy needs to be in jail. In jail long enough to get an education. He needs to learn he must live with the same rules of conduct as the rest of us or pay the price.
Don Vito...GROW UP AND GET A CLUE.

Come on people    

Mel, if you truly "work in education" I hope that you are the lunch lady and not a teacher.

The term is "Catch 22" not "Catch 20."

As for Don Vito, the public should blame itself for laughing at a ridiculous human being long enough to allow him to gain some semblance of "celebrity."

Turn off the television and try reading a book, morons.

Hang on a minute    

Sure, Vito is a creepy guy. He wasn't visiting a mall to get a glimpse of an attraction, He WAS THE ATTRACTION. He wasn't lurking around in the audience scoping out victims. He was out greeting people who came to see him. Having said that, he knew ALL eyes were on him. Flirt shots are not uncommon and are to be expected. I can't imagine how 3 different people would have been accosted or assaulted in public and nothing was said and no one intervened with the first incident.
Weird guy, yeah. Naughty, sure. But this whole thing smells fishy. I think he was just "playing the part" that was expected of him. He is always the butt of Bam Margaritas jokes and probably egged on to do it.

Anyone see evidence of the incident? I'm still skeptical.

Hope Don Vito gets some medical help for his "addictions" -most of you who posts on here are ignorant to the topic and seem like you are not too intelligent to boot...
ps:Bam and his family rocks!!!
