Steve-O Arrested SeaWorld Stunt


Steve-O was arrested on Sunday for a SeaWorld protest stunt that included climbing a crane and setting off fireworks. See videos below.

The “Jackass” star, who has advocated against SeaWorld for years, originally teased his plans on Saturday, posting a photo of blow-up whale float on Instagram. He wrote, “This is Shammy. We’re gonna do a big dangerous stunt tomorrow in Los Angeles that will probably get me in a lot of trouble, and you can watch it happen at 7pm PST via a live stream on my Facebook page. #SeeYouAt7pmTomorrow #yeahdude.”

Come Sunday night, Steve-O (real name: Stephen Glover) went to a construction site on Los Angeles’ famous Sunset Boulevard, and climbed a 100-foot construction crane. At the top, the star inflated the whale float, which had “Seaworld Sucks” written on it. He then lit off fireworks.

More than 80 firefighters showed up in response, in addition to five ambulances and even a helicopter. When Steve-O climbed down on his own, he was taken into custody. He’s expected to face charges of trespassing, setting off explosives without a permit, filming without a permit, and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Officials have pointed out that he needlessly wasted police and fire resources, taking first responders away from true emergencies. Steve-O documented the stunt live on Facebook, posting video and photos from atop the crane. He seemed happy when police arrived, saying, “We definitely have their attention,” and his last post asked, “Anyone wanna bail me out of jail?”

Steve-O was previously cited and fined for changing a San Diego highway sign last year to read “SeaWorld Sucks.” See video from the latest stunt below, and tell us what you think.

Let’s do this live.
