Bam was arraigned and pleaded not guilty to assault charges.

An arrest warrant was issued on Monday for the star after he allegedly got into a physical confrontation with his brother Jess, who suffered minor injuries.

The criminal complaint says that Margera punched Jess in the face as he "threatened to kill everyone in the house."

Bam fled the scene shortly before officers arrived.

Jess has shared updates on social media, claiming that Bam "has been up for about a week" and is "hallucinating."

"He is a danger to himself and anyone around him," Jess said, adding that he hopes his brother will "get help."

TMZ reported Bam claims Jess' allegations are untrue and that he plans to sue his brother for defamation.

The 43-year-old star is best known for being a co-creator of the Jackass franchise, but his struggle with substance abuse in recent years got him axed from the last film as he sought rehabilitation.

Bam is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on May 25.
