In the description of the video by Trigilli, who first broke the news, the YouTuber mentioned:
“I received a call this morning explaining that Calum Von Moger was allegedly not sober and jumped out of a 2nd story window…”
According to Generation Iron, Calum Von Moger was recently kicked out of his family’s house in Australia. Following this, the bodybuilder turned actor reportedly got his own place, where the recent incident might have occurred.
Prior to his injury, sustained under the alleged influence of narcotics, many reports claimed that the Bigger (2018) star had a methamphetamine addiction.

The 31-year-old Australian bodybuilder gained a lot of popularity after winning the “Mr. Universe” title in the World Fitness Federation Professional competition. Following this, Von Moger also played a younger Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 2018 biopic of Joe Weider, Bigger, which further boosted his popularity. The Australian is also known as “Arnold 2.0” in the bodybuilding sector.
On January 31, Von Moger was charged for an altercation and possession of narcotics, including cannabis, as well as testosterone. At the time, the report had spawned much speculation over his steroid use. After his initial release through bail, the Melbourne court decided to postpone the case until May 26, 2022. However, with this recent controversy, it is uncertain if the case will resume this month.
Previously, he was also involved in legal trouble after allegedly wielding a weapon during a road rage incident. With his recent injury, it is unclear if the bodybuilder will address these legal controversies in court.
