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.

The girls were 12 & 13, a little old for Don Vito.

I am SO SICK of people playing the victim. "Just kill me now!"?!?!

Shut up! He shouldn't have been touching girls at the mall in the first place, 18 or not! And that crap that "they told us they were 18." That's like selling liquor to someone who "told us they were 21" without seeing an ID first.

Maybe someone in prison will pound him up the butt until his eye is back where it should be.

sure looks like Bam made a mint off his making fun of his obese, drunk, disgusting uncle and now where is he? Maybe he posted his bail, maybe he's been there behind the scenes- I do not know. Don Vito has always grossed me out. he's a pig and a pervert, was he found guilty by a jury - did I miss that or it didn't say? He is not a victim, he's a dumb arse who can't keep his hands where they belong. I think guys in the pokie aren't even that desperate to go after him. They'd have to get through too much fat - ewwwwwwww, I feel sorry for the correctional officers who have to do his cavity search.

Didn't bam say when the evidence was put foward to the jury he would be aquitted? I guess the evidence was Don Vitos "persona" was touching 12 year old girls on tv therefore he did it all the time.....good job bam i think you may have just "ollied" over the shark tank on your skateboard.


"During the two-week trial, his attorney had argued that Margera's vulgar, obnoxious actions were part of his outrageous "Don Vito" persona. Prosecutor Jim Stanley countered that argument, according to the Rocky Mountain News, saying, "this man was out of control during this public event. He was so intoxicated that he peed his pants while with these children."
