After HE Approached Cops

Bam Margera got busted Sunday morning for DUI, and he made it pretty easy for cops to make the arrest … TMZ has learned.
We’re told Bam drove past CHP officers who were in the middle of stopping someone else, and when he slowed down and spoke briefly to officers … they detected a strong scent of alcohol.
The officers told the “Jackass” star to pull over, gave him a field sobriety test … and then booked him for DUI. His bail was set at $15k — about $10k more than usual — but he was eventually released around 2:30 PM on his own recognizance.
This is Bam’s first DUI arrest, but he’s battled alcohol abuse for years. Just last year, he spoke about embracing sobriety. He and his wife had a son in December.
