There are no signs saying he can't...
Jackass alumni Steve-O isn't taking a police investigation into his latest stunt seriously. TMZ reports that Steve-O did a backflip off of a San Antonio bridge into four feet of water for his new YouTube channel and that San Antonio police are investigating it.
A rep for the San Antonio Police Department says that jumping off the bridge is both illegal and extremely dangerous. They're trying to determine what to charge the comedian with. Steve-O defended his jump, saying that there are no signs warning about the low water level and noting, "They've given no indication that people shouldn't jump, and done nothing to warn anyone about the serious dangers of that shallow water. Very irresponsible, indeed."
He added that the video has has raised awareness about the dangers of San Antonio bridge jumping and that he should really be compensated.
