Despite forfeiting $10,000 bail after missing his March 26 court date, troubled prankster Steve-O is "doing great," his lawyer Barry Sands says.

"He's been in the hospital for two weeks," Sands told E! News. "He voluntarily checked himself in. But he will be at the next court hearing."

The 33-year-old Jackass star (real name Stephen Glover), is currently hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, causing his absence from the arraignment on felony cocaine charges Wednesday.

Los Angeles Superior Judge James Banco issued a continuance and set the arraignment for April 23. The charges stem from an incident at a Hollywood apartment building March 3, following Steve-O's alleged altercation with another tenant.

Since going in for treatment, Steve-O has taken to writing about his addictions and state of mind on his MySpace blog. His latest missive pleaded the media to not spread lies: "I like to consider myself to be exciting enough that dishonesty is not required to get a story out of me."
