In a victory for bad guys everywhere, former UFC light-heavyweight Thiago Silva has been officially cleared of all charges related to an alleged spree of mayhem in January and February of this year. Silva had been accused of sticking a gun in his ex-wife Thaysa’s mouth and threatening to kill her, sending her bonus death-threats via text message, then driving over to Pablo Popovitch’s gym and threatening to shoot up the place. He was eventually charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and resisting arrest without violence.

Luckily — for Silva, not for society — a Florida judge dropped all the charges:

Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a Broward County State Attorney’s office representative following an initial report from TMZ. The representative said that the charges were likely dropped because the alleged victim had become uncooperative and investigators had determined that she had likely moved out of the country.

Wait, so Silva is a free man because his alleged victim won’t testify and is currently in hiding? Great work as usual, Florida.

Silva was released from jail on $25,000 bond in March, and has been living as a humble kickboxing instructor since then, teaching and training out of the Blackzilians camp. He was slated to return to competition at Fight Time 20 last month, but pulled out of the match due to a knee injury.
