Margera plead not guilty to the charges, which included simple assault, and was released on a $50,000 bail. He was also ordered to submit to a drug and alcohol screening.
"We want to make sure you’re safe, secure and alive," the judge stated, to which Bam replied, "To see my son Phoenix, who’s 5." The skateboarder's estranged wife, Nikki Boyd, hasn't let their tot see Margera until she believes he can maintain his sobriety.
Jess alleged that the "frightening" incident went down at their family home in Pennsylvania when Bam's relatives were trying to help him get clean. After Bam allegedly saw a text on his sibling's phone talking about his mental health, he reportedly struck Jesse in the face and ear, resulting in a ruptured eardrum.
At the hearing, Jess, 44, insisted he's "not trying" to get Bam in trouble, explaining, "I just want him to get the help because I feel like this is our last chance."
Meanwhile, Bam's lawyer downplayed the fight, saying, "I don't know what we’re doing here. This is a disagreement between two brothers on a Sunday morning over coffee."
He pointed out that the men often engage in roughhousing for the cameras.

As OK! reported, Bam had been making headlines for his alleged drug abuse and public outbursts, and in June, he was placed on a 5150 hold while acting erratically in Los Angeles.
Earlier this month, the stuntman claimed he was sober and only left rehab to continue treatment outside the facility, as he found it uncomfortable to be "cooped up."
