April Margera thankful Bam wasn't injured worse in bat attack

April Margera is thankful her son Bam Margera wasn't more seriously injured in a Saturday morning attack in which she says the Chester County "Jackass" star sustained a concussion. "He has a big lump on his head," April told us Sunday morning of her son, a professional skateboarder and star of MTV's "Viva La Bam."

April says Bam, 30, told her that a woman who has harassed him before came up out of nowhere and hit him in the back of his head as he walked to his car parked around the corner from The Note (142 E. Market), a West Chester bar Margera co-owns, around 2 a.m. Saturday.

Elizabeth Ray, 59, who lives on the block of S. Matlack Street where the incident occured, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault in the attack. Ray was arraigned Saturday and will later face preliminary hearing.

April Margera said that doctors cleared Bam, who was released from a hospital late Saturday afternoon, to fly Sunday to the set of "Jackass 3-D," to shoot the opening and closing scenes of the film.
