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."
