Silva was reportedly involved in a dispute at Pablo Popovitch Mixed Martial Arts Academy earlier in the evening, which Florida’s Local10.com identified only by address. Silva reportedly threatened people inside the school, and the Brazilian slugger was apparently armed at the time of the incident.
Silva then reportedly left the scene and retreated to his residence at Coral Heights Court in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., where he barricaded himself inside before ultimately surrendering to Broward County Sheriff’s Office’s authorities, which included a S.W.A.T. team that was called to the scene. There were no injuries reported at either Popovitch’s academy or Silva’s residence
