Johnny Knoxville Says He Was Drugged at a University of Arizona Frat Party

Despite all the negative attention surrounding the fraternities at Arizona State University, it looks like the frat boys at the University of Arizona aren't exactly angels, either.

According to Jackass star Johnny Knoxville, he was drugged with Ecstasy while attending a frat party, at U of A, where he was filming his new movie, Bad Grandpa.

Knoxville has repeated the story on several national TV shows, including TMZ and Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Although drugging people is generally frowned upon, Knoxville didn't seem too upset about it.

He referred to it as both "awesome" and "great."

The Ecstasy does seem to be a contributing factor to a torn tendon in his hand, though.
