    Steve-O is getting locked up.

    The Jackass star was sentenced on Wednesday to 30 days in the Los Angeles County jail following his Aug. 9 protest against SeaWorld, in which he climbed a 100-ft. crane.

    Steve-O, whose real name is Stephen Glover, took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce his pending jail time by sharing a cartoon of himself behind bars with a killer whale.

    "Considering I've become a clean and sober, dog-rescuing vegan, I must say I'm ready to go to jail-- not just because it will bring so much attention to the plight of orcas in captivity, but because it's nice to let people know I haven't lost my edge. What can I say, I'm a jackass," he wrote. "My whole crane-climbing, fireworks debacle really turned out to be pretty meaningful in the end, too. I mean, if your goal is to make a statement about captivity, you may as well get yourself locked up!"



    He continued: "To help give back to the City of Los Angeles, I launched a campaign today to raise money for at-risk, inner city youth, by raffling off chances to win an all-expenses-paid trip to be my red carpet, VIP guest at the taping of my Showtime comedy special next month, which is called "Steve-O: Guilty As Charged". There is a link to a new crazy stunt video I just made to let people enter to win in my bio. Los Angeles, I love you, thank you for everything!"



    He pleaded no contest to illegal use of fireworks and trespassing, reports the Los Angeles Times. He has been charged with creating a false emergency, trespassing, using unregistered fireworks, storing fireworks without a permit and possession of fireworks without a permit.

    Along with time behind bars, Steve-O was also ordered to serve three years probation, pay a hefty fine for creating a false emergency, stay away from the Hollywood Entertainment District and refrain from possessing any fireworks or perform any non-approved stunts or staged fights in L.A. County.

    While at the top of the crane in August, he inflated a killer whale float that read "SeaWorld Sucks."

    Steve-O live-streamed video of the entire stunt, which became quite the spectacle, drawing in a team of firefighters and police who positioned a large cushion beneath the performer in case he fell – only to have Steve-O climb down himself.

    This wasn't Steve-O's first protest against SeaWorld – last year he was fined $239 after changing a highway sign in San Diego to read "SeaWorld Sucks."

    Well I'm glad he straightened himself out drug wise because he would've been dead by now. But damn, the grey hair on Steve just shows how time quickly marches on.

    Good causes, the last refuge of the tapped out former 'star' with bills to pay.

    I've always liked Steve-O and am happy that he has found a "cause" he seems to believe in...I'll give him the benefit of the doubt...

    Man, he got SCREWED on that plea deal - 30-days in Jail AND 3-years of probation? Marone! SeaWorld must've really gotten into the prosecutor's ear on this one.

    I highly doubt he's actually vegan.

    In fact no one is because they all kill the microbes on their produce :grad:

    Yeah, but he got banged in LA County, not San Diego County. LA really didn't have much of a dog in the fight.

    Even before Blackfish, I thought SeaWorld was cruel. I remember taking my daughter there when she was a kid in the 90s and noticing how sad the Killer Whales seemed to be just circling around in the pools aimlessly (when they weren't doing the shows). I never went back after that. Fuck SeaWorld.

    First thing i thought of as well! Wow. Steve O looks fucking old! YOu gotta figure there will be some sort of Jackass when they get older right? Any young punk can do those crazy stunts. Lets see em do it with bones a bit more brittle. :up:

    Plus i always wanted to see them do a bit, i would call "Human Bate." THey could tie a rope around steve o's waist and he could swim inside one of these things mouths!

    Yeah whenever you see him in recent times on TV, etc, he seems like a really nice guy. Not fake, but genuine. So glad he got his stuff together.
