The AP and local news are reporting that MTV star Don Vito, the bigass lazy-eyed uncle of skater/tool Bam Margera, is being held in Colorado without bond for sexual assault on a child.

Vincent "Don Vito" Margera, the cartoonishly rotund 50 year-old co-star of "Viva La Bam", was at the Lakewood Mall Friday afternoon for a skateboarding event when he allegedly inappropriately touched a minor.

One can only hope that this is just another in a long line of pranks that Bam is pulling on his loveable uncle (who seems to do wellwith the young ladies). Remember that time that he left him for dead on that island? Oh, man. Riveting television.
