Typical “Jackass”! Steve-O Breaks His Foot and Ankle

The moment just BEFORE Steve-O broke his foot and ankleIt’s not the first time, and it probably won't be the last…Former Jackass star Steve-O landed in hospital this week after a skateboard stunt gone wrong left him with a broken heel and a broken and dislocated ankle.

Apparently, Stevo-O was stationed atop a port-o-potty on his skateboard. Pro-skateboarder Danny Way then drove a car into the port-o-potty and, although Steve-O successfully jumped off before the structure completely shattered, he landed poorly, resulting in his injuries.

“"I really did a number on myself today," Steve-O captioned an Instagram shot of himself in the hospital after the incident. "Apologies in advance for the images of my foot sticking out sideways-- wish me luck in surgery!"

That procedure will have to wait, however. The swelling from Steve-O’s injuries was so extreme that doctors had to put him into a temporary cast; he can only have surgery once the swelling goes down.

Making matters worse? Steve-O is a recovering drug addict, so he can only take OTC drugs like Tylenol to help manage his pain. Here’s wishing the dare devil a speedy recovery!
