Steve-O Ends Up In Jail After Climbing a Crane to Protest Seaworld
Steve-O is sticking it to SeaWorld once again. Sunday night, Steve-O live streamed a dangerous stunt on Facebook, showcasing him climbing up a crane that was at least 100 feet above the ground in protest against SeaWorld.
His only companion up that crane was an inflatable killer whale, which he used to send a message to SeaWorld. Once he reached the top of the crane, Steve-O set off fireworks and proudly took in a successful stunt.
Unfortunately, emergency services didn't find the prank as hilarious as everyone else. A good amount of fire trucks and ambulances arrived on scene and were completely confused about the stunt as they prepared a cushion in case of a fall and were questioning if Steve-O needed to be rescued.
This isn't the first time Steve-O has conducted a stunt to tell everyone how much SeaWorld sucks. His first protest against the people of SeaWorld involved him climbing up a 5 Freeway sign in San Diego to add sucks to the SeaWorld exit.
Steve-O was kind enough to stream the whole stunt on Facebook to share with everyone and to give police video evidence of the situation. He ended the stunt just before 9 p.m. and just as he was climbing down, police were there ready to take the Jackass star into custody.
Police have not charged Steve-O but they believe he could face some serious charges, including conspiracy to commit a crime, trespassing, setting off explosives - the fireworks - within city limits without a permit and filming for personal gain without a permit.
