Jackass star Bam Margera is reportedly on the run after a violent family altercation led to him fleeing into the woods behind his Pennsylvania castle.

According to TMZ, the incident started Sunday Morning when Margera was heard banging on his brother’s door and then allegedly left him a note reading, “​​If you even fucking think of calling the police on me I will officially fuck you up.”

When the brother went downstairs he is said to have found the former pro skater urinating in the sink and a fight ensued.

It is alleged Margera, 43, told his brother, “I’ll kill you. I’ll put a bullet in your head,” and then threatened to kill everyone in the house.

When police arrived at the property in Pocopson Township, Margera is said to have run off into the forest. He remains at large.

The troubled ex-stuntman, who has a history of run-ins with the law, has been charged with four misdemeanours including simple assault and terroristic threats.

The “physical confrontation”, police said, left a victim with minor injuries.

Police said in a statement that they attended the scene following a “reported disturbance” at 11am on April 23.

Jackass star Bam Margera is reportedly on the run after a warrant was issued for his arrest by the Pennsylvania State Police. It’s believed that Margera ‘fled into a wooded area,’ with law enforcement officials adding that he ‘has not been located at this time’.

“The investigation determined Brandon ‘Bam’ Margera, age 43, of Thornton, PA, was involved in a physical confrontation with the victim, who suffered minor injuries. […] An arrest warrant out of District Court 15-3-04 in Kennett Square has been issued for Margera.”

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact PSP Avondale at the non-emergency number.

Margera has had a number of run-ins with police in recent years and had been in and out of rehab.

He is one of the founders of the original Jackass crew, featuring Steve-O, Johnny Knoxville, Bam, Ryan Dunn, and other pranksters.

He also had his own spin-off Viva La Bam.
