Network television hasn’t seen a new episode of “Jackass” in fifteen years, but Steve-O is still keeping the spirit alive.
During a recent trip to Tampa he arranged for some friends to help him jump off a bridge from a trampoline on the back of a moving truck. Dangerous? F--- yeah. But the that wasn’t the scariest part. This morning Steve-O explained:
We did not have a permit and I’m on probation [from a 2015 trespassing charge] “Here’s how dumb I am: I sent the footage to TMZ with the headline 'look how bad I’m violating my probation'." He exclaimed, “That’s a story I can get behind.”
I'm in love with this video.

I'm known for stapling my balls to my leg, putting huge jellyfish on my head, and plenty of other crazy, funny stuff.
The stunt was a success and Steve-O came out of it with only a minor injury to his back.
If he was going to do it again, what would he do differently? “I would try to land on my fee. A half twist would have helped.”
Steve-O, who has now transitioned his career to stand up comedy, is performing six shows at Helium Comedy Club this weekend (Thurs – Sun). He’ll be hanging out after every show, taking photos and suggestions for crazy Philadelphia themed stunt ideas.
By the way, if you’re curious, the nicest place in the world to get arrested is Sweden.
