Jackass daredevil Steve-O was charged with felony cocaine possession yesterday just days after he was hospitalized when friends became alarmed by his destructive behavior, reports E! Online. Stunt-addicted Steve-O—real name Stephen Glover—entered the psychiatric wing of a Los Angeles hospital as he was planning a 25-foot fall onto cardboard-covered concrete. "I'm ready to die," he wrote in an email to friends, according to MTV.

"I agreed to go to a psychiatrist for a professional evaluation, to try and figure out what specific category of nutjob I fall into." He's expected to spend at least 14 days in the hospital. The coke charge stems from a run-in last week with a Hollywood neighbor. Police were called after Steve-O banged on the neighbor's door with a metal bar and tried to punch holes in the walls, officials said. (Read more Steve-O stories.)
