Who is Nikita Dragun?

Dragun is a transgender 26-year-old with 27 million followers across YouTube, Instagram, and Tik Tok. She is well-known online for her videos about her transition, beauty, and fashion.

A request for comment was not immediately answered by her agents.

Dragun has been posting videos and images of herself in Miami over the past week, notably at The Goodtime Hotel on Miami Beach. Just after 6 o’clock, cops were called to that location over a disruptive customer.

Why was the police called?

According to some sources, she had been “causing a disturbance and being extremely disorderly,” including “walking around the pool area unclothed,” according to hotel security, who had called the police.

Police were informed by the security guard that Dragun misbehaved with an employee and threw water when confronted.

What was the scenario when then the police arrived?

According to the affidavit, when police arrived at Dragun’s hotel room, they could hear loud music coming from inside.

The affidavit claimed that after knocking and introducing themselves as Miami Beach police, she answered the door and was informed by the officers’ companion hotel security that she could be led out of the building.

Dragun closed the door, then opened it again and questioned, “Do you want more?

She then swung an open water bottle in the direction of the security guard and one of the police, “causing the water to hit and pour on” them.

Dragun was detained for felony assault as well as minor violence and disorderly conduct. She was taken to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center soon before 10 p.m. Her bond was reportedly set at $2,000 in the profile.
