Jackass Star Steve-O Arrested at Calgary International Airport...

"Jackass" star Steve-O, whose name is Stephen Gilchrist Glover, 36, was arrested at the Calgary International Airport early Sunday morning on an outstanding warrant for assault with a weapon.

A spokesperson for the Calgary Police Service said that Steve-O was taken in to custody at around 7 a.m. local time when officials realized that he was still wanted for an incident that occurred on Dec. 31, 2003.   Apparently Steve-O is accused of assaulting a fan who jumped on stage during a packed standup comedy performance at the University of Calgary's MacEwan Hall.  Police did not disclose additional information about the 2003 incident or about the weapon allegedly used.

Apparently it was a U.S. customs officials who alerted Calgary police and Canadian border staff of the eight year-old arrest warrant.

Steve-O was released on bail, and will face a court date later this spring.  He was in town for his "The Entirely Too Much Information Tour" at The Laugh Shop Comedy Club at the the Blackfoot Inn from March 24-26.
