Bam Margera

Detained & Cuffed in Airport

... for Reeking of Booze

EXCLUSIVE

0813_bam_margera_wm
"Jackass" star Bam Margera wound up being dragged through a North Carolina airport in handcuffs this weekend ... for allegedly being a drunken pain in the ass ... and TMZ has the pic.

Bam spent several hours in a holding cell at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport on Sunday after airline employees refused to let him on his flight ... because he reeked of booze and was cussing like a sailor ... this according to the incident report.

Officials say ... Bam got loud and combative... and cussed even more ... so law enforcement was called in, handcuffed Margera and immediately removed him from the area (above).

TMZ spoke with Bam ... who admits he was loud and obnoxious ... but insists he was NOT drunk at the time. Bam says the alcoholic odor was merely "left over" from a bender the night before. 

After he was released from the holding cell, Bam says the airline booked him on a later flight ... which he boarded without incident.

We reached out to the Charlotte airport police ... but so far, no word back.

He's probably lashing out about the loss of his best friend since childhood's death. When he found out about Ryan Dunns death he sat on an airplane without any incident. He sat for hours sobbing to himself...Give him a break people. Everyone does stupid things. I strongly agree with the idea of him seeking therapy.

Remember all that grandstanding when Ryan Dunn died? "I'm changing my lifestyle; I'm not going to drink like I did," blah blah.

Just another tool.

Jackass and star should never be used in the same sentence.

He is going to end up like Ryan Dunn. Every time this idiot is on Preston and Steve show, he sounds so messed up on something. At least Knoxville is nice and straight.
