Steve-O has got himself in hot water again.

The Jackass star has been taken into custody by the LA police department after climbing up a HUGE crane in Hollywood yesterday.


Steve-O took an inflatable orca up with him, and wore a Blackfish T-shirt to highlight his opposition to SeaWorld and the way the animals are looked after there.

More than 80 firefighters and 30 LAPD officers attended the scene after receiving reports of a potential suicide.

The 41 year old recorded a short video of himself looking down at the fire engines and police cars below. The sound of a circling police helicopter could also be heard overhead.

"That is a lot of f**king firetrucks," Steve-O wrote in the video caption. "Anyone wanna bail me out of jail?"

According to the Los Angeles Times, Steve-O could find himself charged with trespassing, setting off a firework without a permit and conspiracy to commit a crime.
