But Margera claimed that he did not have the time to run the agreement by a lawyer and that it subjected him to regular drug and alcohol tests in addition to being ‘forced’ to take a cocktail of prescription drugs.

According to the outlet, the agreement required him to submit to regular drug and alcohol tests during shooting.

Margera tested positive for Adderall and was kicked off the project though he claimed doctor’s had prescribed him the drug for years.

The Jackass cast has had its issues with drugs and alcohol over the years.

In one of the most tragic occurrences, Ryan Dunn died in a car crash during a drunk driving incident.

Dunn, who was 34 when he died, drove off the road at 130 miles per hour at 2:30 in the morning. Zachary Hartwell, a Jackass production assistant, was a passenger in the car.

According to a toxicology report that was later released, Dunn’s blood-alcohol level was .196 which is twice the legal limit in Pennsylvania when he died.
