YouTuber Nikita Dragun arrested for felony in Miami

Nikita Dragun arrested for felony

YouTuber Nikita Dragun was arrested on Monday night for her disturbing behavior at a Miami luxury hotel. Her antics included walking around naked and throwing a water bottle at police officers. 

The 26-year-old social media star, whose real name is Nikita Nguyen, first began making waves by walking around the pool area naked and engaging in disorderly behavior for hours.

According to hotel staff, she threw water on them when they asked her to put her clothes back on. 

The staff eventually called the police, who found her in her hotel room blasting loud music. Officials knocked on the door several times before she finally opened it. When they told her she needed to respect hotel rules, she slammed the door in their faces. 

When they continued knocking, she returned and asked the officers, “Do you want more?” She then threw a water bottle at them, prompting her immediate arrest. 

Nikita Dragun was booked at the Miami-Dade County’s Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center for a felony on a police officer, misdemeanor disorderly conduct, and misdemeanor battery. It is unclear whether she is still in custody or whether she has been released. 

It isn’t the first time Nikita Dragun, who boasts of a following of over 8.9 million on Instagram, has been found engaging in controversial behavior. 

In March 2017, she was accused of ‘blackfishing,’ a form of cultural appropriation that involves people who are not black darkening their skin to look black, during a campaign photo shoot. 

Nikita shot back, claiming the lighting was making her skin look dark and that she was very proud of her Vietnamese and Mexican roots. 

However, two years later, she was once again looking at cultural appropriation accusations when she showed up at New York Fashion Week wearing box braids.
