Twice this former “Jackass” star was arrested for protesting Sea World. The first time, he climbed a freeway sign to deface it so that it said “Sea World Sucks”. The second time, he posted via Instagram that he was going to do a “crazy stunt that will get him in a lot of trouble”. This stunt ended up being him climbing up a crane that towered over 100 ft. in the air with an inflatable whale and a protesting sign. He video documented various parts of this protest.
