Steve-O Arrested in Canada

3/28/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Jackass" star Steve-O was arrested in Canada yesterday for assault with a weapon -- but the alleged incident that led to the arrest happened 8 YEARS AGO ... TMZ has learned.

Stevo-O Arrested

Law enforcement sources confirm ... Steve-O was stopped by customs when he got off an airplane at Calgary International Airport ... when officials noticed there was an outstanding warrant out for his arrest.

We're told the warrant was issued back in 2003 -- for an incident in which Steve-O allegedly attacked somebody with an unknown object. So far, the identity of the victim is unclear.

Steve-O was placed behind bars for a short while -- before going in front of a judge. He was eventually released on $10,000 Canadian ($10,216.60 U.S.) bail ... which the actor had to pay IN CASH.

Steve-O is due back in court in May.

I wonder if Steve-O knows that it's a crime not to declare any currency over $10,000 when entering Canada? Double whammy!

Why are you acting shocked TMZ? I'd be happy to know that if someone assaulted me that ducking the charges for 8 years wouldn't make them magically go away. I'm glad that Steve-O has turned his life around in recent years, but that doesn't give him a pass on his past behavior.

Canada doesn't forget, if you had a DUI in the united states you will not be allowed into there country, they will hold you at the border if you try to drive there. They tell you to go away
