TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) - "Jackass" star Steve-O has been arrested in Canada for an outstanding warrant related to an assault that allegedly happened eight years ago.

The fearless thrill-seeker was apprehended by customs officers at Calgary International Airport when he arrived in the country on Sunday to perform at a local comedy club.

Steve-O, whose real name is Steve Glover, "was taken down to our arrest processing center yesterday and appeared before a justice of the pace and released on a $10,000 cash bail," a police spokesperson told the Calgary Sun newspaper Monday.

TMZ reported that warrant was issued in 2003 for an incident in which Steve-O allegedly attacked an unknown victim with an unknown object.

He was booked to do his stand-up comedy act at the Laugh Shop Comedy Club in Calgary for five shows from March 24 to 26.
