Steve-O Goes Home

steveo.jpgKnown for being one of the Jackasses in the famous Jackass movies and also for dating Nicole Richie, Steve-O has now confirmed rumours that he is being treated in a psychiatric ward. US reports him as posting on a blog,

“Under the title “You should all know I am in the looney bin,” the Jackass star, 30, writes:

“They call it ‘code 5150,’ that means ‘psycho,’ legally, f—-n bat-s–t, certifiably.

“I’m outta my mind, believe-you-me. How’d I get this way? How can this be? It’s gotten so bad there’s nothing left of me.”

I don’t know if this comes as a shock to anyone else but if you’ve ever seen any of the movies, it really shouldn’t be all that surprising. His friend and co-Jackass Johnny Knoxville showed up at his home one day and took him to the hospital with physical force. This must have been after WWE cancelled one of their Pay-Per-View shows that was supposed to have Steve-O appear and fight one of the big names. WWE cancelled the show due to the fact that they couldn’t handle Steve-O in the dressing room. When you start turning off wrestlers, you gotta know there’s a problem.

But being treated for a mental state is not the end of his problems. He was also charged on Friday for cocaine possession and on March 3 he was arrested for vandalism and possession of a controlled substance. The incident on March 3 and this past Friday were related.

Turns out that sobriety is good for Steve-O. He hit the streets of Hollywood immediately after getting out of rehab. He lit up one kid and made his day. Turns out the star still has his ability to make people happy even sober, and the footage captures his realization. Funny and heartwarming stuff.
