Bilzerian had a brief military career, entering Navy Seals BUDS training, but was discharged due to a firearm safety violation on the shooting range. Bilzerian tried a second time, but was discharged after it was discovered he had fractures in both legs.
His high intensity and excessive lifestyle doesn't come without a price however. Bilzerian has had his share of legal troubles both with Law Enforcement and with other civilians. Because of his lavish lifestyle and heavy drug abuse, Bilzerian reportedly suffered two heart attacks before the age of 32.
Bilzerian was actually on the scene during the horrific tragedy of the October 2017 Las Vegas Shooting where 48 people died, and over 475 others were injured. An excerpt from the Wikipedia page on Bilzerian states:
On October 1, 2017, Bilzerian was present at the Las Vegas shooting and filmed himself multiple times that evening, posting his videos to Instagram. In the first, he described the shooting and was fleeing to safety; in the second, he stated that "had to go grab a gun. I'm f---ing headed back." In his final two videos, he was heading home, stating "I don't think there's much I can do."
There was media debate over his decisions that night: some praised his bravery for going back, others criticized him for running away and filming. In particular, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer stated that his actions were "disgusting" and criticized his "so so tough" persona. Later, other videos of him that night appeared. One showed him searching a police car and another showed him running back towards the shooter before asking police for a gun and being refused one.
