Jackass star Bam Margera has turned himself into Pennsylvania State Police after a multi-day manhunt.

On Sunday April 23rd, authorities issued an arrest warrant for Margera after he was allegedly involved in a physical and verbal conflict with several of his family members, which went down near Pocopson Township in the stuntman's home state of Pennsylvania.

According to TMZ, Bam started banging on his brother and CKY drummer Jesse Margera's door in the early morning and left a threatening note before going downstairs where he allegedly urinated in the kitchen sink.

Eventually, a fight broke out between the two brothers, and Bam allegedly threatened to "put a bullet" in his brother's head and kill everyone in the whole house — including his father, Phil Margera — before running off into the woods.

Since he was gone by the time police arrived on the scene, they issued a warrant for his arrest, and after spending several days on the run, Margera has now turned himself into the authorities. He's facing charges of simple assault, harassment and four counts of terroristic threats, according to WGAL.

His arrest was reported in a tweet by Trooper Grothey, Public Information Officer for Troop J of the Pennsylvania State Police.

""Bam' Margera turned himself in this morning at PSP [Pennsylvania State Police] Avondale," Grothey wrote. "He was fingerprinted and photographed before being arraigned at District Court 15-3-04, where his bail was set at $50,000 unsecured. The preliminary hearing is set for May 25th at the Chester County Court of Common Pleas."
