The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office confirmed that the raid was planned and was not sparked because of the video.
A Florida man flashing stacks of cash had his Facebook Live video cut short when police raided him on camera Thursday. The video has been viewed on YouTube more than 1 million times. He then looked out of a window and ran out of the room. "We have a search warrant", can be heard in the video, followed by a series of loud noises.
Neighbors said the officers used flash grenades as they entered the premises.
It's at this moment in between the tears of laughter, that one can make the sounds of loudspeakers in the background, presumably outside our collective hero's home.
Hollings pre-arrest flaunted a couple hundred dollars in $20 bills
The profanity-laden video features Hollings waving bank notes at the camera and bragging that "this s*** don't stop man" until he realises that the police have arrived at his residence.
Inside, law enforcement found a handgun and ammunition, crack cocaine, oxycodone pills and drug paraphernalia.
He has been charged with possession of a weapon or ammunition, possession of paraphernalia for the manufacture or delivery of drugs, possession of a controlled substance and possession of cocaine.
Hollings' criminal record includes drug charges, as well as convictions for child abuse, criminal mischief, and trespassing, as reported by Action News Jax.
