Steve-O has no problem spending 30 days in jail for his daring stunt to protest SeaWorlds treatment of orcas.

Steve-O Reacts To Jail Sentence

Steve-O, famous for starring on Jackass, was sentenced to 30 days in jail, three years probation and ordered to pay a $14,000 fine for climbing a crane in Hollywood. He will have to turn himself in to serve his time in December, according to TMZ.

The TV personality had pleaded no contest to misdemeanor trespassing and illegal use of fireworks charges.

Steve-O has since taken to Instagram to share his reaction to the sentencing, which featured a cartoon drawn by Mike Hillier.

“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,” Steve-O wrote. “What can I say, I’m a jackass.”

“My whole crane-climbing, fireworks debacle really turned out to be pretty meaningful in the end, too,” Steve-O added. “I mean, if your goal is to make a statement about captivity, you may as well get yourself locked up!”

While Steve-O was standing up for orcas in captivity with his crane stunt, he’s using the attention he’s gained from it to turn attention towards another cause – at-risk, inner city youth.

“To help give back to the City of Los Angeles, I launched a campaign today to raise money for at-risk, inner city youth, by raffling off chances to win an all-expenses-paid trip to be my red carpet, VIP guest at the taping of my Showtime comedy special next month, which is called Steve-O: Guilty As Charged,” Steve-O wrote. “There is a link to a new crazy stunt video I just made to let people enter to win in my bio. Los Angeles, I love you, thank you for everything!”
