Jackass star Steve-O charged over Seaworld protest

Jackass star Steve-O will face five criminal charges after he climbed a crane in Hollywood to protest SeaWorld.

The incident drew dozens of emergency responders to a construction site earlier this month.

The city of Los Angeles will also seek financial restitution for the cost of the police and fire response, according to reports.

Steve-O, whose legal name is Stephen Glover, faces charges including creating a false emergency and trespassing.

Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the City Attorney's Office, said the charges stem from the August 9 incident and a subsequent search of Glover's house.

The 41-year-old, known for his outlandish stunts, scrambled up a crane along Sunset Boulevard and inflated a killer whale balloon emblazoned with "SeaWorld Sucks".
