Steve-O hospitalized following skateboarding accident

The star added: “I really did a number on myself today”

Steve-O has been hospitalized after breaking his right ankle along with his left heel while skateboarding.

The Jackass star attempted to stand on top of a wooden structure that a car plowed through. Although the stunt initially went well, the third try ultimately landed him in a hospital bed.

The 42-year-old added an Instagram image, sharing: “I broke my right ankle in three places, dislocated it, and broke my left heel.”

He also posted a photo while at the hospital with the caption: “I really did a number on myself today. Apologies in advance for the images of my foot sticking out sideways – wish me luck in surgery!”

This year hasn’t treated the star all too well, as he and Kat Von D had broken up after merely three months of dating.

Steve-O – whose given name is Stephen Gilchrist Glover – was also charged with five misdemeanors last year ranging from vandalism and raising a false emergency. He had allegedly set off fireworks from a construction crane to protest against the popular SeaWorld water park.

This led to 30 days in jail following a plea deal, though he pleaded no contest to trespassing and possessing fireworks.

Steve-O said after the hearing: “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.”

This all came at a price, however, as the star was ordered to stay out of Hollywood temporarily and pay $14,000 in restitution fees.
