Well now Bryan has found himself some “fame” I guess would be the word. He has 1.6 Million fans on Facebook and decided to share his most recent run in with the law with all of them.

Charlottesville Police have confirmed that 25-year-old Bryan Silva has been arrested, after a stand-off that happened Sunday at a home on the 2500 block of Jefferson Park Avenue.

Silva has been charged with abduction and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.


Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo said the suspect surrendered after police used a chemical irritant on the home.

Police responded to a domestic dispute call around 6:00 Sunday morning at the home where the barricade situation occurred.

Apparently, a 17-year-old girl had been at the residence when a dispute occurred. She then left go to the neighbor’s house.

The girl told police she had been held against her will by her boyfriend and that he had also threatened her with a handgun. She also told officers that he had threatened to shoot the police.

He posted the video of the standoff and still thinks he is black.

Police made contact with Silva via phone, but Silva refused to leave the home. This prompted police to activate SWAT Teams.

During the barricade, which lasted several hours, the stretch of JPA around the 2500 block was closed for responding Police and SWAT Teams.

“Fortunately by the grace of God this ended peacefully,” said Longo. “We have someone in custody, he’s safe, he’s unharmed, as are the rest of the members of this community.”
