Bam Margera

I Spent a Night in Jail

FOR NOTHING

Bam Margera
still has no idea why he was arrested Monday in New Orleans -- telling TMZ Live, he was hauled to jail ... spent the night behind bars ... but was NEVER booked for a crime.

TMZ broke the story ... Bam was cuffed in the French Quarter after a Mardi Gras party -- when he jumped in to a pool, fully clothed.

But Bam insists, he didn't break the law -- and when he asked why he was brought in to the station in handcuffs, the cops couldn't give him an answer.

When he was released the next morning, Bam says he never received a ticket OR an explanation -- nothing. He's still stumped.

For the record -- we called police in New Orleans, and they didn't have any record of Bam in their system ... meaning he really wasn't booked for anything.

Maybe they arrested him for being a big, nasty, obnoxious hog. I could believe that.

You got arrested for wearing clothes that teenagers wear when youre like 30 something and jumping from one bed to the next..please put down the alcohol, stop f'in all these chicks, and get some help dude..its past your time. Time to move on woth your life. Drinking and F'ing off wont bring Dunn back and killing yourself wont help your family. Grow up

To all the people calling him stupid and saying that he shouldn't do stupid sh*t... it's mardi gras... hello. Jumping in a pool with your clothes ON is the least offensive thing going on there right now. Give it a rest already...this isn't really news anyway.

Most likely the cops thought he was drunk and put him in the tank.

If you do anything foolish the days leading up to Mardi Gras, you go to jail and are released on Wed. morning (the day after Mardi Gras), the cops don't have time to deal with stupid people!!!

Ok, I watched your cable program, and the online taping and looked at the pics of poor lil' Bam...and I have concluded that he lost his way in Bangladesh (too much hash maybe) and, by his own admission on the phone, since he had no clean clothes took the opportunity to do some laundry with chlorine. That's why he was arrested - for airing his dirty laundry in public.

jumping into a pool is one of the few career moves Bam has left that, and smashing his Lambo into a tree drunk...

FYI - As I love English bullsods...they have an average lifespan of 8-10 years....12 year is quite awesome. They are so personally attachable! (If that makes sense)

i wish they would have beaten him silly.
although, my money is on that he hired them to do this for a desperate publicity stunt.
his days of jackass and vive la bam glory are now well behind him and nobody wants to see him anymore. yet, he wants to hang around and be noticed.
i suspect this was a sham arrest by his own doing. he would DEFINITELY do something like that.

Silly TMZ    

Hey Bam, it's called the drunk tank. And you'd have to be trying pretty hard to get arrested for being too drunk at Mardi Gras. That's why you were in a holding cell dummy, you weren't being charged, you were being held until you sobered up enough to be trusted in public again. Suck it up princess, if you don't want cops busting your balls, stay off their radar. You should be happy this happened, you got some press. It's not like this can be bad for your "career".
