YouTube influencer Nikita Dragun was arrested at an upscale Florida hotel after alleged unruly behavior involving baring too much of herself at the pool and assaulting the police when they showed up at the door to her room.
Nikita Dragun (born Nikita Nguyen) is a 26-year-old influencer, model, and makeup artist with 3.5 million YouTube subscribers, and almost 9 million Instagram followers.
On November 7, Nikita was at The Goodtime Hotel in Miami Beach.
According to reports, the internet star disregarded the hotel rules and spent hours acting disruptively.
Later in the evening, the woman spent some time in the guest swimming pool area, and she was allegedly unclothed. When employees tried to ask her to put some clothes on, Nikita reportedly tossed her garments into the pool instead.
The authorities were notified, and by the time officers arrived Nikita had returned to her room.
When officers knocked on the door, they allegedly found that she had the music turned up very loud. They reportedly had to knock more than once to get her to answer.
The police talked to Nikita about the complaints and reminded her that the hotel had rules she must follow. She allegedly responded by slamming the door on them.
It was reported that the woman returned and reopened the door with a water bottle in her hand. She allegedly asked the police, “do you want more?” Immediately afterward, she reportedly threw the bottle in the direction of the officers.
Nikita was placed under arrest and booked into the Miami-Dade County Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on a $5,000 bond. She is facing preliminary charges of felony battery on a police officer, misdemeanor disorderly conduct, and misdemeanor battery.
