YouTube star Fousey appears to have been arrested by police during a live stream after appearing to call the cops on himself, claiming there was a gun to his head.
A live video broadcast on Kick showed Yousef Saleh Erakat, 33 – known for his YouTube channel fouseyTUBE – being interrogated and handcuffed by Miami police officers in a hotel room.
Earlier footage appeared to show Fousey – who has over ten million YouTube subscribers – sitting on his hotel room bed asking a dispatcher to ‘send those fucking cops’, telling them there was a gun to his head. No firearms were seen in the footage.
Another man who appeared to be keeping Fousey safe was also seen in the footage, but didn’t seem threatening to the YouTuber and helped him when he asked what his room number was.
DailyMail.com has so far been unable to verify whether the arrest is real or fake. The Miami Police Department has been contacted for comment.
Fousey, who has opened up about his mental health struggles, has made a number of controversial videos in the past.
