"King of Instagram" Dan Bilzerian Arrested, Held Without Bail
Dan Bilzerian, a millionaire and avowed asshole with more than 5 million Instagram followers, was arrested at LAX Tuesday, and was being held without bail as of late Tuesday night. It's not yet clear whether his arrest has anything to do with the model he allegedly kicked in the face at a Miami club over the weekend.
The LAPD told the L.A. Weekly that Bilzerian was picked up on "an out-of-state warrant," which TMZ claims was issued in Clark County, Nev. According to TMZ, Instagram's leader in paying models to hang out with him is facing charges of possessing or manufacturing illegal explosive devices.
Bilzerian, who likes to say he was kicked out of Navy Seal training two days before graduation, has previously Instagrammed his arsenal of firearms, and once ran over a BMW in a tank for kicks.
If this arrest is actually related to explosives, Bilzerian still has the alleged assault in Miami hanging over his head. The victim, a model named Vanessa Castano, filed a police report claiming Bilzerian kicked her in the face, causing a laceration to her eye.
He claims she was attacked by two other women who were fighting over him, something he believes you're probably not alpha enough to understand.
Update: Bilzerian was released at 1:16 p.m. Wednesday, according to KTLA, but the LAPD says the charge of possessing or manufacturing explosive or incendiary devices hasn't been dropped.
