http://msn.foxsports.com/ufc/story/...standoff-with-police-developing-020614?dfgagh armed assailant is in custody tonight after a standoff with the Broward County Sheriff's Department SWAT team in Oakland Park, Florida. Sources have stated to FOX Sports that the man involved was UFC light heavyweight Thiago Silva. According to several reports, the armed suspect involved went into a jiu-jitsu school at 777 E. Oakland Park Boulevard, which belongs to famed Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor Pablo Popovitch and allegedly began threatening people at the school. No one was injured at the school and after the suspect left, the authorities were contacted. The situation began at around 7:45pm local time in Florida when police were called to the scene. From there the armed assailant went back to his home and barricaded himself inside. The house at 2041 Coral Heights Court was later identified as being owned by Silva as SWAT team members surrounded the home while trying to negotiate his surrender. At 11:15pm, authorities confirmed that the suspect was in custody and the standoff had ended. According to anonymous sources speaking to FOX Sports on Thursday, the altercation began because of a domestic dispute between Silva and his wife. Silva then proceeded to the jiu-jitsu school where he made the threats before leaving and ending up back at his home where police arrived shortly thereafter. Silva had been scheduled to face Ovince St-Preux at UFC 171 in Dallas in March. The Brazilian lives and trains in Florida where he works with the Blackzilian team based out of that area. The Broward County Sheriff's department has not made an official statement on the matter or named Silva as the assailant apprehended after the standoff.
