Reports: Thiago Silva arrested

— -- UFC light heavyweight Thiago Silva was arrested late Thursday night after he barricaded himself inside his residence in southern Florida, according to reports.

Multiple local news affiliates reported Silva was involved in an altercation at Pablo Popovitch Mixed Martial Arts Academy in Oakland Park, Fla., on Thursday evening. According to the reports, Silva, 31, was armed during the incident.

The Brazilian fighter reportedly left the scene and fled to his residence at 2041 Coral Heights Blvd. Public records confirmed Silva to be the address' property owner.

Broward Sheriff's Office officials told multiple media outlets that a suspect was apprehended after a SWAT team set up a perimeter around the house, but the officials did not identify the suspect.

No one was harmed at the school or Silva's residence, according to reports.

The UFC released a statement regarding Silva's apparent arrest Thursday.

"This evening, we were made aware of a situation involving Thiago Silva," the statement read. "We are in the process of gathering the facts and have no further comment at this time."
