Stuntman and “Jackass” star Steve-O was released from jail Thursday because of overcrowding after serving only nine hours of his 30-day sentence in connection with an anti-SeaWorld stunt in Hollywood over the summer, sheriff’s department officials said.

Just before turning himself in to deputies, Steve-O — in typical “Jackass”-style fashion — posted a video on Instagram showing himself performing a backflip in front of the main sign of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility with the caption, “Here I am at jail. See ya when I see ya, folks! #yeahdude #SeaWorldSucks.”

Steve-O, whose real name is Stephen Glover, surrendered himself about 5:36 p.m. Wednesday, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department booking records. Nearly nine hours later, at 2:26 a.m. Thursday, Glover was released.

A few hours later, Glover was at home resting in bed with his beloved pet.
