Skateboarding star Terry Kennedy arrested after 'brutally beating man and threatening to kill cops'

FAMED skateboarder Terry Kennedy has been arrested for allegedly brutally beating a man and later threatening to murder police.

Kennedy, 36, was taken into custody in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois on Tuesday after police responded to a report of a battery at a motel, TMZ reports.

According to law enforcement, Kennedy was accused of violently attacking a man at the motel, leaving the victim with a fractured skull and a concussion.

He apparently then fled the scene.


It's unclear what provoked the reported attack but Kennedy, a longtime associate of Rob Dyrdek, was taken into custody.

As he was being booked, the professional skateboarder allegedly became aggressive towards police.

The 36-year-old reportedly threatened to murder officers on nine separate occasions.

He even allegedly referenced the murder of a police officer in Whittier, in 2017, telling officers: "We killed ya'll in Whittier, California. We killed ya'll b**ch ass."

Kennedy was ultimately arrested and hit with a slew of charges, including aggravated battery in a public place and threatening a public official.


A police spokesperson told TMZ Kennedy had been out on bond for a previous offense at the time of his arrest. He was also therefore charged for violating his bond.

Kennedy made a preliminary appearance in court on Wednesday where a judge set his bail at $100,000.

He remains behind bars as of Thursday afternoon, jail records show.

Kennedy's next court appearance has been slated for late next month.

The Long Beach, California native is the co-founder of Fly Society, a clothing and music brand.

He also regularly featured on Bam Margera's MTV television series Viva La Bam, and Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, in addition to appearing in the video game series Skate.
