TMZ had a chat with Bam about the whole assault by baseball bat thing, and he shed some light on what caused the incident. Apparently the woman who hit him “lives connected” to his bar, and this isn’t the first time she’s taken issue with him. As Bam says,
“She calls the police nonstop. She’s punched me in the face, filed a police report. And then she’s threatened to kill me twice, filed two police reports. She threatened to kill Missy, my wife, for no reason, and then she threatened to burn the place down and then she hit me over the head with a baseball bat.”
After she did that last part, Bam says she called the police and told them that he was hit by a car, but when he regained consciousness, he set that straight real quick.
As for his condition, he says he was “internally bleeding in the brain for two days,” and he has several staples that seem to be holding his scalp together. He left the hospital to fly to L.A. so he could film the opener to Jackass 3, which was supposed to be each cast member being punched in the face and filmed in slow motion. Way to fuck up some plans, crazy woman. And, you know, I guess for almost killing someone as well.
