Jackass star Bam Margera is reported to be “missing” after escaping from rehab in Florida.
Police are currently looking for the reality TV star after he escaped from a Florida rehab center a few days ago, according to reports.
The 42-year-old star rehabilitation manager reported Monday that Bam was missing because he told staff at the centre he was “not satisfied” with the place and “their services”.
According to TMZ, Bam told staff he would be “split” — although he wasn’t allowed to leave the agency on his own.
According to a Delray Beach police report, Bam told the rehab manager that he would examine himself at another rehab facility in the area before fleeing the premises in a black sedan.
Bam was initially at a rehab facility under a court order, with staff reportedly “concerned” that the star had left the facility without permission.
Staff reportedly told police that Bam did not appear to be in danger to himself or others before fleeing the center.
Police have yet to locate the Jackass star.
This isn’t the first time Bam has dropped out of rehab.
Back in 2019, the embattled star posted a lengthy Instagram account of his life and feelings after checking out of rehab just days after his arrival.
At the time, pro skateboarder Bam said “no one can stop him” and that he was “doing better than ever” after his recovery.
In a handwritten note he filmed and posted on Instagram, Bam wrote: “On day 5 in rehab, I realized when I was bored it was time to drink.
“In rehab, I was bored 50% of the time, so that’s when I found out that when the boredom started to kick in and alcohol wasn’t restricted, I became as fucking creative, great ideas, exercise , skateboarding, working out, yoga, hiking, biking and more. Because I don’t like standing still! (unless I’m drunk).
