'SYTYCD' Choreographer Arrested for Rape - Again!

Alex Da Silva, a salsa dance instructor and choreographer on the dance show "So You Think You Can Dance" was arrested this morning at his home in North Hollywood on a felony warrant charging him with sexually assaulting four women, the LA Times reports.

The charges include four counts of forcible rape, two counts of assault with intent to commit rape and two counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object.

If you recall, Alex, 41, was also arrested on suspicion of committing these charges last April, but he was released after the L.A. County district attorney's office declined to file charges and asked detectives to resubmit the case with additional evidence.

The alleged assaults took place between August 2002 and March 2009 and involved four victims. The victims were either dancers or aspiring dancers who met Alex at his dance classes.

He is being held on $6.2 million bail and will be arraigned Thursday.
