Jackass star Bam Margera was detained by police but not arrested on Monday after brawling with a New York City cab driver.

Margera was waiting outside the Hogs & Heifers Saloon when he became angered with the taxi driver, an eyewitness told TMZ.

The source alerted police when Margera allegedly attempted to flee after punching the driver several times.

Margera has disputed the witness's version of events, telling the website that the driver called his female friend a "sl*t" and then grabbed her by the hair after she spat at him.

The Viva La Bam star admitted that he punched the driver at that point, but insisted that police chose not to arrest him when they arrived on the scene

In July, Margera broke three ribs while racing his neighbour down a flight of stairs.

He also recently got a tattoo in honour of his late Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn, who was killed in a drink driving crash earlier this year.
