Vine Star Bryan Silva Has Been Arrested

After a standoff with the Charlottesville, Virginia Police Department, law enforcement officials arrested social media personality Bryan Silva on Sunday (Jan. 4). The 25-year-old Silva, who's known for some bizarre, cringe-worthy attempts at humor on Vine, has been 'charged with abduction and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon,' Newsplex reports .

Earlier Sunday morning, police received a call that ultimately lead them to Silva's home, where he was allegedly holding a yet-to-be identified 17-year-old girl against her will.





'It was a domestic disturbance,' Police Chief Tim Longo told reporters at a press conference. 'A female caller said that she was threatened with a fire arm, we responded and began an investigation.'



The 17-year-old, purportedly Silva's girlfriend, told police that Silva had 'threatened her with a handgun,' and that 'he had threatened to shoot the police,' Newsplex reports .

Silva, who claims to be a bodybuilder, porn star and rapper, uploaded pictures to his Facebook while involved in the standoff with police. Because reasons.

It's not Silva's first run-in with the law: In an interview with Complex , the Viner said that he'd been 'locked up for three years' for 'breaking and entering' and 'hitting [his] school principal.'
