Bam Margera

Detained by Cops

After Taxi Cab Punch-Out

9/12/2011 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0912_bam_taxi_V2Bam Margera was detained by police early yesterday morning outside a biker bar in NYC -- after the "Jackass" star allegedly got into a punching match with a cab driver ... then kicked in his car door.

An eyewitness tells TMZ it all went down outside the famous Hogs & Heifers Saloon.  He saw Bam and his friend attack the driver through the car window, so he flagged down cops. We're told Bam walked away ... but the officers caught up to him.

Bam tells a different story.  According the him, the cabbie started the whole thing by calling his lady friend a "slut." Bam says the girl spat at the driver, who in turn grabbed her hair.  Bam says he then dove into the car and began punching on the guy.

Bam acknowledges the cops showed up "but couldn't figure out who to arrest," so everyone walked away ... free to do it again.

As usual Bam acts like a douche bag. I guess someone should explain to him that name calling does not give you the right to assault someone. Not buying Bam's version of things one bit, I guess there were no fat girls to pick on that night.. so a cabbie caught their crap instead.

The s--t might be HIV pos. So that would make it an assult with intent to do great harm. They need to arrest her. Bam, well he needs to be in a detox facility, like maybe 6 months worth.

Julie : huge assumptions, it's clear you're looking for the worst case scenario. You don't know if bam was even drunk, or if the girl has even bad breath let alone hepatitis or HIV (which is extremely unlikely to be passed on by spitting).

As for his 'ladyfriend' automatically being his girlfriend... massive assumption, I go to bars with friends who happen to be girls often too, doesnt mean Im sleeping with all of them.

I was there and Bam and his friend with the hat we slithering away when they saw the cops. Rather fast walked away from them. As Bam reports it, I was there more to the story... oh Bam it is a story you are lucky man I would of pressed charges. HOGS and Heifer Doorman helped them out with the story. No ****!

Uhm if the cab driver pulled her hair then he has every right to beat that guy up. I dont understand why you guys have to be so mean to him, he was defending her.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Maybe at his age he should give up the pseudo bad-ass routine & get therapy for his latent anger issues.

Hey Bam, it's time to grow up. Being a douchebag is not a career, especially as you get older you just look stupid.
