Police: Steve-O Swallows pot
Associated Press

STOCKHOLM, Sweden | One of the stars of MTV?s Jackass was arrested in Sweden after saying he swallowed a condom filled with marijuana, police said Friday.

Stephen Glover ? known as Steve-O on the defunct series ? was arrested Thursday after police raided his hotel room in Stockholm. Glover and other Jackass regulars had performed their Don?t Try This at Home show in the Swedish capital Wednesday night.

Prosecutor Gunnar Fjaestad said the raid happened after Glover said he swallowed the condom as a stunt.

Jason Berk, Glover?s attorney in the United States, said Friday the arrest was a ??major misunderstanding and a failure to differentiate between the person and his art.??

Glover, 28, could face charges of narcotics smuggling and possession of illegal drugs. A detention hearing is scheduled for the weekend and a judge will decide whether he should be kept in jail while prosecutors prepare any charges.


Jackass star arrested in Sweden

Associated Press

STOCKHOLM, Sweden ? A star of MTV's "Jackass" admitted in a Swedish court that he had drugs in his hotel room, but said he joked about swallowing a condom filled with marijuana and hashish.

The Stockholm district court ordered Stephen Glover ? known as Steve-O on the defunct series ? held in jail until June 6 while a prosecutor prepares possible charges of drug smuggling and drug possession. Sweden has some of Europe's strictest anti-drug laws.

"I had an Ecstasy pill in my bag and I smoked marijuana in the hotel room. I admit to both of those crimes," Glover said during the hearing Saturday. He denied smuggling the drugs into Sweden and said he was only joking when he described the condom stunt to a Swedish newspaper and on his Web site.

The reports led police to raid Glover's hotel room Thursday in Stockholm, where they found marijuana and an Ecstasy pill. Glover and other members of the "Jackass" crew had performed their "Don't Try This at Home" show in the Swedish capital the night before.

"I apologize that my bad sense of humor has wasted so much of the Swedish taxpayers' money," he told the court.

Glover's court-appointed defense lawyer, Bjoern Hurtig, said he'd appeal the detention order because it would keep the entertainer from making a living.

Jason Berk, Glover's attorney in the United States, said: "To suggest that Steve-O is a flight risk is almost humorous. This is a person whose whereabouts are known by the general public every day of his life."

Berk added that Glover wouldn't endanger his career by becoming a fugitive.

that's shitty!!

One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today because growers in the 30s lobbied against hemp farmers -- they saw it as competition, because It is not chemically addictive as is nicotine, alcohol, or caffeine.
