Anderson Silva files police report over Twitter beef

Eric Bolte-US PRESSWIRE

Anderson Silva is using his time off the mats to fight other battles, most notably he's pressing charges against a woman he claims slandered him on Twitter.

It can't be helped, but it feels like information is missing when I learn that Anderson Silva is pressing charges against a woman for slandering him on Twitter. Nonetheless, that appears to be where we find ourselves with the former middleweight champion. Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting has the report after speaking with the Chief of Police in Pinhais, Brazil.

"We're still investigating to get her name, address and phone," Magalhaes told Globo. "It's a 40-year-old woman who wrote on the internet, in a social media, several phrases, including ‘Brazil will see the idol and rotten that you are'."

In an interview with a local radio station, Magalhaes said the woman also called Silva a "s---ty idol."

Apparently the woman could face up to six months in jail or, more likely, a hefty fine. Either way it seems a pretty hard price to pay for a couple of rude comments. Stay tuned as we'll be sure to keep you updated.
