Steve-O

Oh I'm Sorry ...

I Didn't See Any 'No Backflip' Signs On This Bridge

Steve-O
insists police should be THANKING him for doing a high-flying backflip off a San Antonio bridge this weekend -- into four feet of water -- telling TMZ, thanks to him, the entire city now knows ... that bridge should really have "no diving" signs on it.

San Antonio police are currently investigating the incident -- a rep for the SAPD tells us, they're trying to determine how Steve-O should be punished ... because backflipping off that bridge isn't just illegal, it's extremely dangerous.

But Steve-O says that's BS -- telling us, it's dangerous because the city never posted signs on the bridge, warning people that the water below is only 4 feet deep.

He adds, "They've given no indication that people shouldn't jump, and done nothing to warn anyone about the serious dangers of that shallow water. Very irresponsible, indeed."

Steve-O says his video -- shot for his new YouTube channel -- has raised awareness about the dangers of San Antonio bridge jumping ... and he should be rewarded.

We didn't think we needed a sign to tell you 'hey now, let's not be stupid and jump off a bridge in this narrow man made river'. Estupid. And in all the history of San Antonio, TX no one has been dumb enough to do such a thing.

Steve-O actually did something interesting and newsworthy in lame San Antonio. And for that, I commend him.

First of all there are signs you dumb ****. The signs have been around the river for years. Jumping from any point gets you a fine. If there wasn't any signs people would be in there all the time. Stupid dumbass.

Intelligent people know that jumping off bridges is opt-in, not opt out. You don't default to jumping off every bridge without a sign on it, unless you're a prize candidate for the Darwin awards. Oh, look who i'm talking about.

Most people with an ounce of a brain know not to jump off of a bridge.

How does he survive a jump like this in 4 feet deep of water? I remember him from his days working in the Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop. Long before he got his break.

Everyone who's ever been there knows that the water is only three and a half to four feet deep. It runs through the middle of town with restaurants right on the water and an attached mall. The boats that take tourists around on tours is very shallow hulled because of it's depth. I know Steve O is a moron but I didn't know he was mentally challenged. I think he has hit his head to many times.
