Nikita Dragun arrest details come to light

Nikita Dragun was in trouble this week in Miami, Florida, with an arrest.

She is a well-known beauty YouTuber and Hype House star.

The internet star is said to have drenched a police officer with water from a bottle.

What happened

Police received complaints about the YouTube star walking naked around the pool.

She disturbed people even when the staff told her to stop.

The police later came to Nikita Dragun’s hotel room.

As a result, Dragun’s arrest falls on three charges:

  • Felony battery on a police officer
  • Misdemeanor disorderly conduct
  • Misdemeanor battery

She was transferred to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami-Dade County.

Court

On November 8, Nikita Dragun appeared virtually in court in Bond.

The proceeding tape allege that Dragun was put in the men’s unit of the correctional facility.

However, Nikita Dragun is a trans woman.

In addition, at the bail hearing, she asked Judge Mindy Glazer if she should remain in the men’s unit.

“Yeah, I don’t make the rules up there,” Glazer responded.

Nikita Dragun is no longer in jail after a $5,000 bond.

Statements

Jack Ketsoyan, Dragun’s press officer, stated to Local 10 News from Miami, with the text:

“The situation with Nikita, who is legally female, being placed in a men’s unit of a Florida jail is extremely disturbing and dangerous.”

“This decision made by the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department directly violates their protocol, which mandates that transgender inmates are classified and housed based on safety needs and gender identity.”

“Nikita has been released and is now safe. Thank you for respecting her privacy during this time.”

Miami-Dade prison

Meanwhile, a representative of the Miami-Dade prison system also released a statement to deny his allegations.

“All inmates undergoing our intake process remain in an open seating (open booking) area, in the presence of correction staff,” said the rep.

“Additionally, inmate Dragun was placed in a holding cell by herself due to her high profile status before being released.”

“She was escorted by an LGBTQ officer during her time at the corrections facility.”
