Though he reportedly is in trouble with the law after a video recently surfaced that shows him allegedly kicking a woman in the face at a Miami nightclub this past weekend, high-stakes poker player Dan Bilzerian was arrested at LAX on Tuesday over an unspecified felony charge in Nevada.

However, TMZ reported that Bilzerian has been accused of attempting to make explosives. TMZ said the warrant was issued last month and kept under wraps until now, and Bilzerian is currently being held without bail. The gossip site added that he could face up to six years in prison for the charge.

The 34-year-old Instagram celeb is known for his interest in weapons.

This is a developing story. More details to come.

I concur. This guy is obviously a stone nutcase, and it a sad state of affairs that he is being followed by tens of thousands of people on twitter. Yikes!

@thereyougoagain: 'Innocent' is not a word that first comes to mind when I hear this person's name. Reap the whirlwind - just like everyone else.

Why do they refer to this guy as a "high-stakes poker player"? That's a bullshit cover story. Bilzerian: (a) has a LOT of money [and a typical entitled rich kid attitude]; and (b) a father who is a convicted felon in massive stock fraud schemes.

How much more convenient to be a "high-stakes poker player" to explain where all the money came from, rather than just another out-of-control entitled rich kid.

Exactly, and why does he keep showing up on Card Player articles when he really has nothing to do with the poker industry?
