Bam Margera found after second escape from rehab, en route to new facility

Bam Margera has been found after his second break from rehab in two weeks – and is reportedly on his way to a new center, thanks to an intervention.

The 42-year-old Jackass star was at a hotel in Deerfield Beach, Florida, on Monday, according to TMZ, after he was last seen Saturday night near the LifeSkills residential facility in South Florida.

The outlet reports that police officers were accompanied by a crisis intervention team, including Margera’s father and mother, who intervened on the spot.

Other family members called to speak to him, per TMZ, but it’s unclear if the stunt performer’s wife, Nicole Boyd, was involved.

Margera is said to have insisted on seeing the couple’s 4-year-old son, Phoenix Wolf, but was told he would need to get back into treatment first, the reality star’s camp told the outlet, noting that Margera said ” voluntarily consented” to check in at a new facility.

Vidak For Congress has contacted Margera’s representative for comment.

As previously reported, this is the second time the MTV alum has fled rehab without authorization in recent weeks.

The father of one was first reported missing after leaving a facility in Delray Beach without permission on June 13.

He is said to have informed the center manager of his plans to leave the property so he could go to another rehab facility, but police were unable to locate him.

Margera was found safe on June 15 hiding in a Florida hotel room.

Sources at the time told TMZ that the “Bam’s Unholy Union” alum was sober and cooperative when police rounded him up and took him to a second facility, from which he last escaped.
