A manhunt is underway for Jackass alum Bam Margera after he allegedly checked himself out of a rehab facility in Florida he had been attending under a court order.

TMZ reports that Margera, 42, was not allowed to leave his latest facility without authorization, but made the impulsive decision to leave the Delray Beach sober living facility after complaining of the rehab’s restrictions. 

He is said to have told the manager he was unhappy with the place and would be checking himself into another rehab center in the area before he was seen leaving in a black sedan.

The rehab facility’s manager then reported him missing on Monday, and authorities have continued to search for Margera ever since, according to TMZ.

They say he does not appear to be a danger to himself or others.

Meanwhile, Margera posted a photo to his Instagram on Tuesday fist-bumping with his ‘new Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor.’

‘MMA fighter, chiropractor and 10 years sober Dominick, is my new AA sponsor #f-kYeah,’ he captioned the post.

He also added a selfie to his Instagram Story showing him with his wife, Nicole Boyd, and rapper Machine Gun Kelly – who was performing in Florida Tuesday night.

MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Bam Margera for comment.

Last month, the TV star broke his right wrist ‘for the 10th time’ and dislocated his right elbow while skateboarding over the weekend, but he refused pain medication due to his sobriety.

The Pennsylvania-born star was attempting a trick that he hadn’t tried in a year at a Florida skatepark during a 30-minute break at a nearby AA meeting when his arm bent backwards – according to TMZ.

A week before that, Bam (born Brandon) celebrated ‘one year of treatment’ for drug and alcohol abuse at a Boca Raton facility, and he had said he planned on attending outpatient treatment classes for the next two months.

Margera is currently sharing an apartment with his second wife Nicole Boyd and their son Phoenix Wolf, 4, but they plan on moving back to Southern California soon to buy a new home.

The former pro skateboarder’s marriage to Boyd has lasted three years longer than his prior one to childhood friend Melissa ‘Missy’ Rothstein, which ended in 2012.

Bam spent his Sunday hard at work on the set of the I Don’t Love You Anymore music video for the band CVVE (featuring Raven Gray and SinceWhen), which he manages.

Last month, Margera privately settled his wrongful termination lawsuit against the Jackass creators over his firing (due to testing positive for Adderall) from the the successful fourth film, Jackass Forever.

The stunt performer previously appeared in MTV’s Jackass, Jackass: The Movie, Jackass Number Two, Jackass 2.5, Jackass 3D and Jackass 3.5.

Paramount+ is currently developing a reboot of the Jackass series, but it’s unclear if Bam will be involved.
