Steve-O Could Face Charge for River Walk Stunt

By  | 

SAN ANTONIO -- The "Jackass" star "Steve-O" could be facing a misdemeanor charge and a fine up to $500 for his River Walk stunt Friday.

Steve-O flipped off the Commerce Street bridge at the Rivercenter mall into the river. San Antonio Police tell KENS 5, they are looking into the incident to determine the appropriate course of action.

According to the Unified Development Code, it's unlawful to swim in the San Antonio River within the corporate limits of the city with a maximum fine of $500.

In our interview with Steve-O, he said he didn't know the river was only four feet deep but said in hindsight, he did a good deed by jumping off the bridge to show his stunt should not be repeated by anyone else.
