Playing Man Waving Cash Is Arrested During Facebook Live Stream: Cops

A Florida man was arrested Thursday by police who served him with a warrant while he streamed himself on Facebook Live.

Breon Hollings, 22, was busy flashing a wad of cash to followers online when cops arrived to arrest him at his Jacksonville home.

"This is Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. We have a search warrant," officials can be heard saying off camera in the Facebook video.

A series of loud noises can also be heard in the video at that moment.

"It was like a bomb going off," one neighbor told News4Jax. "It shook my house, literally. The kids were in the front room right here, and I had to move them to the back room."

Hollings disappears from the video by that point, but officers can soon be seen entering the room where Hollings was recording.

Hollings was arrested on several charges, including possession of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine, and possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon.

It isn't clear whether the Facebook stream played any role in the raid. 

However, at least one member of the SWAT team appears to recognize that he's being watched before he appears to switch off the live stream.
