Bam Margera got busted Sunday morning for DUI, and he made it pretty easy for cops to make the arrest … TMZ has learned.

We’re told Bam drove past CHP officers who were in the middle of stopping someone else, and when he slowed down and spoke briefly to officers … they detected a strong scent of alcohol.

The officers told the “Jackass” star to pull over, gave him a field sobriety test … and then booked him for DUI. His bail was set at $15k, which is about $10k more than usual. He was released around 2:30 PM. 

This is Bam’s first DUI arrest, but he’s battled alcohol abuse for years. Just last year, he spoke about embracing sobriety. He and his wife had a son in December.

You’ll recall his friend Ryan Dunn was killed while drunk driving in 2011.
