American pro skateboarder Bam Margera ended up knocked out and on the deck recently after a brawl broke out with his former publicist Leon Hill at Secret Solstice music festival in Iceland.
The incident comes on the back of longstanding resentment between Bam and Leon, and the two sides of the story differ heavily depending on which party you speak to.
A spokesperson for Secret Solstice festival came out to Visir News after the fight to claim that the former Jackass star had tried to make his way into a restricted area on the festival site and harassed two female security guards on his way, causing the heated exchange.
Margera was at the festival performing with one of his bands, The Earth Rocker, and in the video of the incident below, claims that it didn’t have anything to do with restricted areas or harassment, but rather the beef between him and Leon Hill.
Bam claims he tricked Hill into thinking a reporter from Rolling Stone wanted to speak to him so that he could talk to him, saying: “He comes up thinking it’s A Rolling Stone interview just to find me, so him and his boys beat the fucking shit out of me. It has nothing to do with anything else. Leon Hill is a scumbag.”
The video below shows the severity of the brawl, which included well-known Icelandic rapper Gisli Palmi clocking Margera right in the face. Bam is said to be filing charges with the local police over the incident in question.
