Video of Thiago Silva being taken into custody following standoff with police

A local NBC affiliate in South Florida shot video of UFC light heavyweight Thiago Silva being taken into custody at a Broward Sheriff's Office main jail after an alleged incident Thursday night at the Pablo Popovitch Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and a subsequent standoff with police at his home.

Silva faces multiple charges, including two counts of commit/attempt specified felony could cause death, aggravated battery with deadly weapon, and resisting officer-obstruct without violence.

In response to why he allegedly pulled a gun on his wife, Thaysa, Silva said, "She want my money. She want my house."

Silva's wife has yet to speak publicly, and Silva's manager, Glenn Robinson of Authentic Sports Management, declined to comment on the situation at this time. No injuries have been reported.
