'Jackass' Star Johnny Knoxville Was Busted by the Cops While BabysittingIs there something odd about the picture to your right? There's a shirtless dude, a bunch of cops, and ... some adorable smiling children. That's weird. But the photo starts to make more sense, once you realize it involves professional daredevil Johnny Knoxville.

Johnny is the star of 'Jackass,' a raunchy series featuring absurdly dangerous stunts. On the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Knoxville discussed a lifetime of crazy antics -- including the time that he was busted by the cops while babysitting.

First, Knoxville mentioned some of the terrible injuries that he's suffered during his 'Jackass' career. The worst one involved being hit in the groin by a motorcycle. Knoxville was quick to assure David Letterman that everything was still okay with his, um, groin area. "I just had a nine-month-old boy," he said, "so 'it' still works."

Dave then asked if Knoxville was a "good father." "I hope I am," Johnny replied. In response to this, Letterman revealed the photo of the 'Jackass' star being held by the cops, with his grinning daughter Madison standing next to him. Yeah. So what is the deal with that photo, anyway?

Here's the story: Knoxville was babysitting his daughter and her friends. In order to entertain the kids, he set up a "shooting gallery" in the backyard, and stated firing at helium balloons with a gun. Everyone was having a great time -- until the moment when the cops arrived. The heavily armed policemen burst into the house, tossed Knoxville on the floor, and threw him in handcuffs. ... How odd. Strangely enough, cops are against involving kids in dangerous, "Jackass-style" antics.
