According to TMZ, police found the Jackass star at Trejo's Tacos in Los Angeles on Sunday, and due to erratic speech, behavior and alleged suicidal threats, authorities determined he should be taken to a mental health facility. Under California law, if a person is considered a danger to themselves or others, they can be involuntarily held for psychiatric assessment and crisis intervention for up to 72 hours. It's unclear if Bam is still at the facility. Yahoo Entertainment reached out to his attorney for more information.

Bam traveled to L.A. last week in an attempt to see his his 5-year-old son, Phoenix, whom he shares with estranged wife, Nikki Margera. Bam claimed on social media that Nikki has prevented him from seeing Phoenix for months amid his addiction struggles.

"Nikki continues to pray for Bam's safety, sobriety and mental health stability. She has reached out to Bam to try to set up FaceTime calls for their son, but Bam has either not responded, or responded in a denigrating fashion," Nikki's attorney, David Glass, tells Yahoo on Monday. "Nikki continues to place their son, Phoenix's best interests first, and hopes that Bam gets the help he needs so he can be stable, consistent, and able to be a parent to their son. Nikki joins Bam's family's calls for Bam to get inpatient treatment for mental health and addictions."
