He went on to compete on Dancing With The Stars and he has become a big star on You Tube.
In 2015 he was arrested and served jail time for climbing a construction crane in Los Angeles in a protest against Sea World.
The star was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold which was later lengthened to 14 days due to an alleged suicide attempt.
Soon after he pleaded guilty to felony possession of cocaine.
He avoided jail by the successful completion of his treatment program.
And on Friday he shared a video with TMZ that explains how he poured rocket engine fuel on himself for a new comedy special. In the clip Steve shows off the yellow boils that cover his arms.His friend listens patiently.'I did a couple of stunts, put out my butt, put a tea kettle on my head, I put it on the floor and made snow angels in rocket fuel,' Steve says, clearly amazed at his own courage.'And my butt blasted me.Laying down in a bed of rocket fuel is f***ing crazy.' His new comedy special is with Jackass director Jeff Tremaine.They are so large that they obscure some of the tattoos on his arms. The star is standing on the balcony of a home as he says, 'Its all over me, f***ing everywhere.'He is then seen inside the house talking to a man.'You haul out a rocket engine fuel, if you take that powder it's like a full explosion,' he says proudly of his stunt.
