Bam Margera

Detained & Cuffed in Airport

... for Reeking of Booze

EXCLUSIVE

"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.

If you have a strong odor of alcahol from the night before you get arested shouldn't that tell you that maybe you have a really bad drinking problem and you should get help before you kill someone. OH waite didn't his good friend in pensylvania get stinking drunk this year and total his Porsche killing himself and his passenger.

Bam needs to get himself into some kind of therapy or something, or his parents will find themselves without a son. This goes way beyond him just having fun, something is troubling him and he needs help fast.

Now do his parents think they should have beat his ass a few times for the crap he did? Probably not, his mom is happy as long as he is still buying her new houses and new cars and fun vacations. and dad give him a steak and a beer! please what a piece of crap he turned out to be! wasnt he engaged once too, what was her deal?

Dude, how old are you? I'd bet the police officer got a round of applause when he dragged off 'Bam'. Stupid name, stupid actions, stupid moron.

Yeah that's so sexy, reeking from alcohol consumed the night before. Maybe try taking a bath and brushing your teeth before going out in public

I guarantee when this clown gets chewed out by the media, he's going to come up with excuses blaming it on still grieving over his friend Ryan.
