Do you remember ‘Jackass’ star Steve-O? The stuntman and his friends who pulled off the most outrageous stunts ever? He was arrested after his latest debacle; setting off fireworks overlooking Sunset Boulevard on a 100 ft. crane!
Save the orcas
This stunt was not just for fun, but to raise awareness of the orcas that are kept in captivity and not treated very well in Sea World. While Steve-O was on the crane he held an inflatable whale with the words ‘SeaWorld Sucks’ on it. He definitely achieved his purpose; people noticed him up there and the story is all over the media.
The jail sentence
Steve-O was arrested on the following accounts; trespassing, using unregistered fireworks, creating a false emergency, possession of fireworks without a permit and storing fireworks without a permit. He was given a sentence of thirty days in an LA county jail, which he is not too worried about as it proves that he hasn’t lost his ‘edge’.
“My whole crane- climbing, fireworks debacle really turned out to be pretty meaningful in the end too. I mean, if your goal is to make a statement about captivity, you may as well get yourself locked up!” Said Steve- O.
After posting on his Instagram account about the ordeal as well, he has definitely got the attention of many people. Let’s hope his claims will be investigated and any forms of animal cruelty stopped!
