The incident at the hotel didn't stop Margera from creating another scene hours later at the restaurant. Burbank police were called by 3:45 pm to calm an intoxicated Margera at the Thai dining establishment.

Law enforcement sources revealed that Margera would have to pay a forceful bail fee of $500 before being released unless he decides to remain behind bars until he becomes completely sober.

Insiders close to Boyd and the events of the restaurant incident revealed to media outlets that Nikky is considering filing a restraining order against Margera. The source states that Boyd hopes to protect herself and Phoenix from Margera.

Crazy Incident

Boyd spoke with media outlets after the events at the restaurant, and she recounted the incident, saying it "Was scary for me and even more scary for Phoenix." She added that it was shameful for Margera because "The visitation that Bam had with Phoenix the prior day in Hollywood went reasonably well."

Failing To Improve

The estranged ex-wife also mentioned that Margera isn't making the best efforts to improve his behavior. She claims he arrived intoxicated, saying, "This is the umpteenth time that Bam takes one step forward and ten steps back."

Staying Sober

Nicole Boyd's attorney, David Glass, told media outlets that they have tried to work with Margera to set up a possible regular visitation schedule. Still, it all depends on him being able to keep sober.

The series of unfavorable events following Margera comes one month after Boyd filed a legal separation lawsuit that also grants her custody of their child, Phoenix.

Making The Hard Choice

As part of her legal documents presented to the court, Boyd stated she had to make "the hard choice" to "protect herself and their son."

Tattoo Saga

Although Margera isn't the best at being sober, he tries to be an excellent father to Phoenix. In an Instagram post last week, the stuntman uploaded a picture of himself with his son's name tattooed on his face in Arabic.

The post was captioned with, "I miss Phoenix the wolf so much I had to to get his name tattooed on my f***in face to remind Nikki she is breaking my heart by not letting me see him."
