The Real Rap Sheets of the Jackass Cast
Jackass star Steve-O was arrested in Calgary this week for allegedly assaulting a heckler there eight years ago. Call us jaded, but we think the Canadian authorities are overreacting to behavior that's more an extension of the Jackass brand than a threat to public safety.
While Steve-O and his buddies have committed their share of transgressions over the years, rarely have they warranted serious police intervention. We review the offenses of the Jackass gang, criminal and otherwise, and recommend the punishments they really deserve.
The charge: "Bringing a prohibited item onto an airplane."
In 2009, Knoxville was arrested for carrying a prop grenade through Los Angeles International Airport.
What he's really guilty of: Pretension Unbecoming of a Jackass. Forgetting that he's essentially a 21st-century Mo Howard, Knoxville has a tendency to name his pranks and stunts like works of art and discuss them with the kind of hypnotized reverence we'd expect from a lisping grad student.
While we recognize that taking repeated hits to the testicles from a giant Styrofoam fist requires some degree of planning, we question whether it rises to the level of film auteur.
Punishment: Trilogy of Walking Tall sequels with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
