Thiago Silva Arrested After SWAT Standoff


MMA'er Thiago Silva allegedly made threats at a jiu-jitsu studio late last night and, then, eventually created a SWAT standoff after he barricaded himself in his home...

Silva was arrested after the standoff and was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, two counts of committing and/or attempting a known felony that could cause death and resisting an officer.

Prior to being booked into jail, Silva spoke to a photo journalist, as he sat in the rear of a police car. "She wanted my money. She wanted my house and she wanted my money," apparently referring to something with his wife.

Silva is being held on $10,000 bond and is expected to appear for a bond hearing later Friday...

The UFC released a statement:

"This evening, we were made aware of a situation involving Thiago Silva. We are in the process of gathering the facts and have no further comment at this time."

Silva's next bout is set for UFC 171 in Dallas on the Ides of March...
