Vine superstar, Bryan Silva, was arrested after making threats, posting messages on social media and holding Virginia police at bay for hours.

Investigators say a neighbor made the call after Silva’s 17-year-old girlfriend escaped from the house. “We got a call here this morning, shortly after 6 o’clock, for a disturbance, it was a domestic disturbance,” Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo said. “A female caller said she was threatened with a firearm.” When officers arrived, Silva refused to come out. While he barricaded himself inside, he posted a message to Facebook, writing “SHE BETRAYED ME.” He also posted a video just before he surrendered to police that showed him yelling, dancing and drinking what appeared to be alcohol. “He definitely wants to be a public figure and is a public figure, and he has like a million followers on Facebook and a Vine sensation and all of that,” a neighbor said. “Fortunately, by the grace of God this ended peacefully,” Longo said. h/t abc7
