Drugs Quip Backfires for Jackass Star in Sweden
Fri May 23,12:32 PM ET
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A quip by MTV show "Jackass" co-star Steve-O to Swedish newspaper that a drugs-packed condom was lodged in his intestines did not amuse local police.
They arrested Stephen Glover after he told a paper that prior to arriving in Sweden -- one of Europe's fiercest opponents of drugs -- he had swallowed a condom filled with marijuana. He said he was afraid it had got stuck.
"He is now sitting in a cell on a special toilet with an alien object in his stomach. We are waiting for it to come out so we can analyze the contents," prosecutor Gunnar Fjaestad told Reuters on Friday.
Glover was touring Sweden with his own show, and will probably have to stay at least two weeks for the investigation.
The MTV show "Jackass," which ran in 2000 and 2001, featured outrageous stunts and practical jokes and was followed by "Jackass: the Movie" in 2002.
