Steve-O’s 30-day jail sentence ended in just a few hours.

The actor/stuntman known for the “Jackass” television and movie franchise — his real name is Stephen Gilchrist Glover — was sentenced in October to a month in jail and three years of probation for climbing up a construction crane in Hollywood in August in a protest against SeaWorld.

He turned himself in Wednesday night and was released about 2:30 a.m. today, according to the sheriff’s department. The release reportedly was due to jail overcrowding.

Glover, 41, was arrested Aug. 9 after he entered a secured construction site, climbed a crane, set off a firework and dropped an inflatable Shamu toy reading “Seaworld Sucks” before climbing down. Glover live-streamed the entire stunt online.

Emergency crews were sent that evening to the 6000 block of West Selma Avenue on a report of a possible jumper who turned out to be Glover.

Glover alerted his Twitter followers and Facebook fans the previous day about his plans to carry out a public stunt in opposition to SeaWorld’s treatment of killer whales and other sea life.

Police blasted the stunt, calling it a massive waste of officers’ and firefighters’ time. Responding fire crews deployed air cushions beneath the crane, unsure if Glover planned to jump.

Glover must pay nearly $13,900 in restitution to the Los Angeles Police and Fire departments, along with a $500 fine and penalty assessments.

The terms of Glover’s probation also bar him from using, possessing, manufacturing, storing or transporting fireworks and require him to stay 100 yards away from the Hollywood Entertainment District bordered by La Brea Avenue on the west, Franklin Avenue on the north, Argyle Avenue on the east and Selma Avenue on the south.

He also was instructed “not to engage or participate in any staged fight in public, feigned medical emergency or any other non-approved or non- permitted stunt or prank in public reasonably likely to elicit an emergency response from police, fire or rescue personnel within Los Angeles County.”
