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.

Why on earth would a cabbie call someone a slut out of the blue? Makes no sense. Chances are that didn't even happen or if it did, there was a reason for it. Bam have proven over and over what a liar he is, so I'm sure that's the case once again. He always tries to twist things to make himself look like the victim. Furthermore, the act of spitting on someone is technically considered to be an assault, so even if what he said is true, his "lady friend" started it. How exactly would he have grabbed her hair, from INSIDE the cab??? He's a loser.

First of all, would someone tell Bam Bam to take off those insipid finger gloves! Hi lookes like a homeless 12 year old! You would think that if he REALLY gave a damn about what happened to his so called best friend Ryan Dunn, he would grow up, sober up and stop wasting space!

Sorry Bam have to say this...Alaina Beaton aka PB aka Cruella Devil is definitely a trainwreck and you need to hop off that before you wreck!! I am never the one that would trash someone down but geeze man she spit on someone! She is no better than anyone else, cause she was called a bad word! Poor thing, wonder why she was called that to begin with! What happen to "This woke me up"? Are you doing Ryan & Zac any justice acting the way you have been? Have a little more respect for your family, your TRUE friends and yourself!! We all miss them and drinking it away never helps the pain it just covers it up! Sending you courage and strength!!

The piece of **** deserved it. I don't care if she spat on him no one deserves to be touched like that. Bam was protecting his girl, like he should. And for anyone who brings up Ryan Dunn again please shut the **** up and get a life.
