Woman gets probation in 'Bam' Margera case

Posted: June 14, 2011

A West Chester woman accused of bashing Brandon C. "Bam" Margera, the MTV and movie star, will spend two years on probation after pleading guilty Monday to simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

Chester County Court Judge Anthony A. Sarcione imposed the sentence on Elizabeth Ray, 60, suggesting that the next time she has a problem with Margera, she should call police and not take the dispute into her own hands. Assistant District Attorney Ann Marie Wheatcraft said Margera, who did not attend the hearing, was not seeking jail time for Ray.

According to court records, Margera, who skateboarded to fame on MTV's Jackass, was standing outside the Note, his West Chester nightspot, on June 12, 2010, about 2 a.m. when Ray struck him in the head, a blow that caused a concussion and required two staples. Earlier, Margera said, he and Ray, who cares for her elderly mother in a residence that shares a wall with the nightclub, engaged in a shouting match over Ray's noise complaints.
