“Maybe He Will Hang Himself” Says Former HCSO Detective, Regarding Local Pariah’s Arrest
SPRING HILL – It is common practice for RNRF to report on some of the most vile criminals who wreak havoc in our community. Crimes like robbery, rape, and even murder, unfortunately, are not unusual, even in within the borders of our seemingly small county. Then there are those who are loathed by the public for their licentious behavior, but rarely face the consequence of their actions – at least not in a court of law.
There is one such individual who some would say tops the list of Hernando County’s most malignant citizens, and his reputation is akin to that of Attila the Hun, if social media existed in the 5th Century.
In November of 2013, two Hernando County Detectives were forced to resign, after an incident at a local pub. Former Detectives Anthony Scarpati and Anthony Mazza were involved in physical altercation with now 30-year-old Bryan Andrew Silverstone, outside Jersey’s Hometown Tavern on Commercial Way. That incident led to an investigation and forced resignations, but no charges were filed against the pair.
Following the incident, Silverstone began a hail of attacks against dozens of people on social media sites, even those who used to consider him a friend.
Kristi Michelle, one of Silverstone’s alleged “victims” says when she denied his advances he began posting horrible things about her on Facebook, and even started stalking her at the gym. Michelle says “I’m not the only one he’s stalked or harassed… There are hundreds of others I’m sure.”
Last year, Silverstone set his sights RNRF and launched an unprovoked attack against us, for reasons to this day are still unknown. During a facebook conversation with Silverstone on January 27, 2014, he stated “When we cross paths in public I suggest you look the other way, otherwise we will be having a conversation you little F**K… And you don’t want to “conversate” with me in person.”
Silverstone even made “Headlines” on a website called TheDirty.com, where the author states in part “This wannabe thug spends all his time creeping on innocent girls through facebook & myspace… This kid needs to get a life and get thrown in the looney-bin!”
According to court records, in 2013 Silverstone was served with two separate injunctions; one for Stalking and the other for Repeat Violence; however, both cases were dismissed for reasons unknown. Since 2002, Silverstone received 19 traffic citations in Hernando County alone, most for speeding and non-moving violations, but one for failing drive in a single lane.
We recently received information that Silverstone was causing issues with his neighbors in the Berkeley Manor Subdivision, where it is believed he resides. They claim Silverstone played loud music at all hours of the night and refused to abate the disturbances, despite reports to law enforcement.
Through our sources, we learned that Silverstone had an active misdemeanor warrant out of Hernando County for Disturbing the Peace. Last night deputies served that warrant on Silverstone and booked him into the Hernando County Jail. Less than two hours later, Silverstone was released on a $500 bond.
We contacted former Detective Anthony Scarpati for comment on Silverstone’s arrest; Scarpati’s replied with harsh words, saying “Maybe he’ll hang himself.”
We’ll bring more on this story as it develops.
