Warning: Video contains acts of violence

After a fight between several people broke out at a Kelowna Community Theatre on Friday (Oct. 28), police are now investigating.

The altercation took place during ‘Jackass’ star Steve-O’s performance of The Bucket List tour, where he was joking with the audience, telling stories about his life and career, and talking about stunts they weren’t allowed to go through with when filming the ‘Jackass’ movies.

However, according to a witness at the event who posted a video of the altercation online, there were hecklers in the audience that appeared drunk which sparked a fight between both men and women. One woman is seen throwing several punches at a person’s head.

The fight took place roughly 20 minutes before the 10 p.m. show started, according to a Facebook comment. The 10 p.m. show was his second of the night.

YouTuber “Miss K” said that a man was able to break up the fight but that she believed it went on for too long and took too much time for security or others to get involved.

Another commenter reported seeing several people disrupt the show and having to be asked to leave. Steve-O was apparently frustrated with the whole ordeal and others said he appeared disappointed.

A woman was seen leaving the theatre with two black eyes and a broken nose.

Police are now asking for the public’s assistance in bringing forward photos or video footage of the altercation to the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 and referencing the file number 2022-67847.
