Steve-O

Under Investigation for 'Deadly Conduct'

Steve-O's latest stunt -- backflipping from a bridge into the shallow, San Antonio River -- could land him in jail for the crime of "Deadly Conduct."

Steve made the jump last Friday ... a very risky proposition given the water below is only 4' deep.

Cops threatened to cite him but didn't ... however, law enforcement sources now tell us the "Jackass" star is under criminal investigation.

So, you ask, what is the crime of "Deadly Conduct."  Under Texas law, someone who engages in reckless conduct that could place someone else in danger of great bodily injury, then it's considered deadly conduct ... a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.

We're told Steve-O may also be cited for swimming in the San Antonio River -- which is prohibited.

devil's advocate    

So with TMZ's theory, If I go to an abandoned home with No Trespassing signs posted, and accidentally start a fire while some other bum is passed out in the basement without my knowledge, and he gets injured or killed from my accidental fire. I can't be held responsible because he was trespassing and shouldn't have been there in the first place, right?

He looked both ways before he jumped, but did he look under the bridge to see if there was a boat there? Twist it anyway you want, but he was in the wrong. It was simply a puplicity stunt for someone who is fading away. Deal with it.
