Comedian Steve-O has been arrested after climbing a crane dozens of metres high in a protest against SeaWorld.
When the former Jackass star, whose full name is Stephen Glover, reached the top he inflated a killer whale balloon with “SeaWorld Sucks” written on it.
He had earlier posted a photo of himself with “Shammy” the inflatable whale, and informed fans of the dangerous stunt which he intended to stream live via Facebook.
The star then filmed himself from the top of the crane where he expressed his surprise that so many police cars were gathering below.
After climbing down he was taken into custody and later wrote: “Anyone wanna bail me out of jail?”
Since the release of the documentary ‘Blackfish’, SeaWorld has faced critism over treatment of its killer whales, including one which was involved in the deaths of three people.
