Dan Bilzerian Has Warrant Out For His Arrest
The country of Azerbaijan has issued an arrest warrant for the self-proclaimed 'King of Instagram', Dan Bilzerian.
The billionaire seems to be in the news more and more - first the Florida-born social media star controversially became an Armenian citizen, signing up to join the country's military service, and now he's managed to make himself wanted by authorities.
It's been confirmed by PEOPLE that the Investigative Department of the Prosecutor General's Office of Azerbaijan has initiated a criminal case against Bilzerian.
Allegations have been made he illegally visited Nagorno Karabakh, a region that is the subject of a conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Azerbaijan authorities also allege Bilzerian illegally acquired grenades and firearms before opening fire at a shooting range - for demonstration purposes only.
However, the exact charges he faces are not completely clear.
These charges come after Bilzerian and his brother, who are of Armenian descent, became citizens of the Eastern European country.
"Dan and Adam Bilzerian have just participated in an oath ceremony on the occasion of receiving Armenian citizenship," said Mnatsakan Bichakhchyan, Head of the Passport and Visa Department of the Armenian Police, in a Facebook post accompanied by a photo of himself with the brothers.
Mr Bichakhchyan also shared a photo with Paul Bilzerian, the pair's father
It is unknown whether Dan and Adam will have to serve in the Armenian military, but all male citizens are required to perform national service or face criminal prosecution.
"Citizens of the Republic of Armenia that have dual citizenship must participate in the defence of Homeland, by reporting at the location prescribed by the draft entering into military service on voluntary contractual basis," according to the Armenian government website.
"If you failed to implement your obligations then a criminal case is instituted in Armenia and you are wanted under the Armenian legislation."
The Bilzerian brothers could pay a fine of 3.6 million Armenian Dram to avoid serving, roughly the equivalent of £5,700, which if the filthy lucre on Dan's Instagram is anything to go by, probably isn't that much to him.
He made a name for himself on the social media platform, with a profile that has to be seen to be believed.
His posts are usually a combination of him with women, cars and guns, sometimes all three, and it has managed to garner him almost 24 million followers.
