You might think that is silly, but people were playing the Bolas checklist card as the real thing in draft. On a scale of one to Artie Lang, I think he might be at an Ally McBeal-era Robert Downey Jr. He recently went on a not-entirely-hinged rant about Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine, to which Steve-O replied, telling Bam everyone loves him but he needs to get clean.

Johnny Knoxville also came out and said he wants Bam to get help. Via The Huffington Post:

“I think each of us was responsible for his own actions,” Knoxville told GQ. “And when someone’s struggling, everyone tries to help that person. And at the end of the day, that person has to want help. Sometimes they don’t. Yet.”

GQ then asked Knoxville if he was referring to anyone specific in the Jackass franchise, alluding to Margera.

In response to this question, the magazine noted, Knoxville “looked away, visibly emotional. Half a minute passed.”

“We want Bam to be happy and healthy and get the help he needs,” Knoxville eventually told GQ. “We tried to push that along. I think that’s all I really want to say about it.”

Whatever they tried is clearly not working because TMZ reported that Jeff Tremaine, one of the focuses of Bam’s ire and the director of Jackass 4, filed for a restraining order against Margera.

It’s unclear at this point what exactly he claims might’ve happened now to warrant a judge’s intervention, but we know this … it comes on the heels of Bam going on a fuming rantagainst Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville.

Yeah, it’s not great. Hopefully, Bam will realize he needs to get himself straight and find some help and the boys can put this behind them.
