We don’t even know where to begin with the details emerging in the aftermath of Thiago Silva’s armed standoff with Florida Police, so let’s just jump right into it (via a police report obtained by MMAFighting):
-After appearing before a judge this morning, Silva was officially charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of resisting an officer without violence, and one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon stemming from a prior incident.
-The aforementioned prior incident took place on January 30th, 2014 between Silva and his ex-wife, Thaysa (the couple filed for divorce in December 2012 after 13 years of marriage but continued to live together), wherein Silva allegedly “picked up a revolver, pushed her onto the sofa, placed a revolver inside her mouth and threatened to kill her.”
-Two days ago, police were again called to the Silva residence by Thaysa when she arrived home to find her ex-husband inside, which violated the terms of the temporary injunction for protection she had filed against Silva. Thiago eventually left without incident (after initially refusing), but later texted Thaysa that he was “gonna f–k you up and you are going to die. I am going to hire someone to kill you and I am gonna move my girlfriend in.”Read More DIGG THIS
