The 59-year-old woman charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment for allegedly attacking Bam Margera with a baseball bat claims the ‘Jackass’ star used a racial slur during a disagreement.

“I’m innocent, and he’s a jackass just like his movies,” Elizabeth Ray tells the Philadelphia Daily News. While she says she did not strike Margera, she alleges he called her the n-word during a verbal argument outside of a West Chester, Pa., bar early Saturday morning.

“He called me the n-word,” she says. “He uses racial slurs, uses the n-word with black in front of it.” Ray denies that Margera was assaulted at all, saying, “I did not hit him, nobody hit him”; however, TMZ has obtained photos of the star being treated at the scene by paramedics.
Margera was taken by ambulance to Chester County Hospital, where he was briefly admitted to the intensive-care unit. Talking to TMZ, ‘Jackass’ co-star Steve-O said, “I think he is going to be okay.”

April Margera, Bam’s mother, who is well-known to fans of ‘Viva La Bam,’ tells the Daily News, “She hit him over the head with a baseball bat, and she hit him while he was walking to his car. There was no fight. She’s just crazy and gives him a hard time all the time.”

According to reports, this isn’t the first run-in between Margera and Ray. Ray lives on the same block as The Note bar, which Bam co-owns, and has allegedly clashed with the star over noise. Ray has previously been convicted of robbery, and in 1992 was acquitted on an aggravated assault charge.

MTV reports that upon release from the hospital, Margera reported to the set of the upcoming ‘Jackass-3D.’

Bam Margera, who is best known for creating havoc and stupidity among the world on “Jackass,” has landed himself in the hospital after being hit in the head with a baseball bat. We’ve seen him in pain on the show before, but this time it looks like this one is more serious than the rest.

Reports said the 30-year-old Margera, who has landed in the hospital several times due to the pranks they perform in “Jackass,” was attacked by a 59-year-old, bat-wielding woman outside his bar in West Chester, Pennsylvania, just around 2am. Prior to the bat bashing, Margera allegedly had an altercation with Elizabeth Ray.

Margera was brought to the Chester County Hospital while Ray was arrested and later booked for five charges, including two counts each of simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. Ray is also facing aggravated assault, a felony charge.

Margera was released from the hospital late Saturday afternoon, after spending several hours at an intensive care unit, reports said.
