Bam Margera

ARRESTED IN ICELAND

Destroyed Rental Car, Didn't Pay

Bam Margera
was arrested in Iceland yesterday ... over a rental car he DESTROYED last year and never paid for, this according to the "Jackass" star himself.

It's a pretty bizarre story ... basically, Bam allegedly rented a Toyota Landcruiser from Hertz when he visited the country back in 2012.  According to officials, Bam returned the car in TERRIBLE shape 5 days after the rental period was over -- but never paid for the damage, fees and other costs associated with the ride.  Then, he left the country ...

So, when Margera returned to Iceland yesterday ... he was arrested upon arrival at the Keflavik Airport.

Bam eventually remedied the situation (after cutting a huge check) -- and was released from custody.

But the best part of the saga was the incredible, probably-drunken post-arrest interview he gave to a Icelandic newssite Visir.is ...  in which he ADMITS to trashing the hell out of the car.

"I kicked the door in because I was pissed one night ... and then there was a scratch over there that they had to replace the whole panel for," Bam said.

There's more -- "The back got hit, and then there was … I've been painting like with oil paints so oil paints get everywhere so there was like blue paint all over the inside of the car."

So what's the lesson here? DON'T LET BAM BORROW YOUR CAR!!!

Give the guy a break, he thought he was in L.A. and the cops and the courts were going to turn a blind eye because he's a quasi-celebrity.

How old is this dude? I mean seriously this shyt isn't that funny when drunken teens do it and it is less so when a dumb, drunken ******* like Bam does it. Grow up, Jackass is over. Time to move on!

Bam Margera looks like a homeless person and I'll bet he smells like one too. I used to like the shows he was on 10 years ago, but his schtick has gotten old. He was on Ridiculousness on MTV a few days ago and he was obviously stoned out of his mind. He was sitting there fat, stoned and making stupid juvenile comments. It's time to grow up, Bam.

This guys is an idiot. Own up to your mistakes and the damage you do. Be an adult and take responsibility. Hope he reads this the little child he is.

Everybody who doesn't like it can shut up.

Your jealous that he can do whatever the F he wants. If I was that rich I would destroy a lot more than a land cruiser.

If you hate him your gonna love me.
