Steve-O broadcasts 100ft crane climb to Facebook live, is now arrested
Still batshit insane.
It seems Jackass stuntman extraordinaire Steve-O is done with his days of fading into obscurity. After announcing via Instagram on Saturday he was preparing for a "dangerous stunt", he followed through with that on Sunday night, climbing to the top of a crane in Hollywood, gathering plenty of attention from police, fire trucks and ambulances. In a pretty obvious waste of resources, an air rescue cushion was prepared until the authorities managed to negotiate with him to get him down. Relive his glorious return 15 minutes of fame below, and there's a GoFundMe floating around somewhere to help him pay for bail, if you really feel for the guy...
[UPDATED] Turns out [thanks Traibian Britton via FB] - this was all part of a protest against Sea World by Steve-O using the hashtag #SeaWorldSucks. Some of the footage apparently featured him blowing up a Shamu with the hashtag on it, although we couldn't see that in the Facebook posts below:
