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.

Bam is on a downward spiral. He's not recovered from his friends loss.

ah    

I saw him in a Washington DC airport on Sunday late afternoon, and my exact comment was that he looked (and acted) like he was still partying from Saturday night. Guess he took the party straight through to Monday!

Its because freedom is not free anymore and there is no longer a constitution anymore in america. Police are like military policing the people. WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE ITS TO LATE THE NEW WORLD ORDER IS ON OUR DOOR STEPS...

The hard hitting journalists at TMZ forgot the key questions: "Were you drunk?" A sober, thrity-something, married man doesn't typically jump in the pool fully clothed. A drunk, thirty-something, married man that is partying at Mardi Gras does...so I've heard.

Another question that was missed by the dunderheads at TMZ, "Why were to cops there?" Someone was obviously disturbed enough by his actions to call them. Then he doubles down on his stupidity by not getting out when they tell him to? Sounds like Bam got a big break to me. He was in what the cops used to call "The Cooler", which is where they put druken idiots until they are sober enough to be less so.
