Television personality Steve-O duct-taped himself to a billboard in Hollywood Thursday to publicize his new project titled “Gnarly.”
Firefighters were sent to the 1700 block of North Cahuenga Boulevard at 9:35 a.m. to assist police with what was preliminarily classified as “an apparent single-patient behavioral emergency,” according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Steve-O posted a selfie on Instagram, showing several layers of what appeared to be black tape covering his body as he stood on a platform with his back to the billboard, which had the word “Gnarly” on it and a reference to his website.
Police said the prankster, known for the “Jackass” television series and movies, was not arrested.
