    Poker Vlogger Mark Ari is a Wreck, Live Streams Arrest



    Arrest involved Mental Health Check, DUI Warrent, Making Terroristic Threats

    Def has some serious mental issues right now.

    Arrest happens at 37 minute mark. There is some entertaining audio after phone goes in his pocket. He's lucky the cops were incredibly patient and kind.

    Rather see this happen to him than Bodog Ari.

    What a mess. Cops showed a lot of restraint in the face of his insult comic routine

    Anyone know his real name? I think Mark Ari is an alias, perhaps his first and middle names.

    Dude has always been weird but his behaviour became even stranger lately. Look at his youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/Philosimply/videos

    Looks like he scrubbed all of his many videos from before a month ago. And most of the videos currently uploaded are very long videos of him doing nothing and rambling about nonsense.

    Reminds me of Matt Marafioti's breakdown a few years back. However, Marafioti was clearly having either a psychotic break or a manic episode with psychotic features. Mark Ari's bizarre behaviour has a different flavour to it. Less manic.

    By the way, I just looked up Marafioti's Hendon Mob and see that after a 3-year hiatus (likely during his recovery from his episode) he was back to cashing tournaments since July 2019. https://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/player.php?a=r&n=90825

    Did he provide any updates on what he's been doing for 3 years?

    How much was his bail? Was he not able to find his ATM card?

    Unfortunately, this is the second death in 2020 of a relatively young mentally ill poker pro.

    In January, Charles Jiang died: https://pokerfraudalert.com/forum/sh...les-Jiang-quot

    RIP.

    I wonder if coronavirus lockdowns that limited mental health services contributed to his death. The data in excess deaths from drug overdoses during lockdowns has looked really bad, I have been seeing.

    Also I saved the video but I won't repost it, out of respect for his family.

    I will talk about it on radio tonight though.
