Miami-Dade corrections denies claims Nikita Dragun was held in mens jail

Following her arrest in Miami Beach, Miami-Dade Corrections authorities dispute allegations that transgender YouTube personality Nikita Dragun was kept in the men’s detention facility.

Monday, 26-year-old Dragun was detained for disorderly conduct and violence on a police officer after reportedly causing a disturbance at The Goodtime Hotel in South Beach.

According to the arrest report, Dragun was unclothed and creating a commotion in the hotel’s pool area.

Police said that when officers approached Dragun, they saw that she behaved arrogantly and sprayed water on an officer and a security guard.

Tuesday in bail court, the judge asks Dragun how she prefers to be addressed.

“She and she,” says the YouTuber.

Although Dragun’s arrest affidavit said, “(Dragun) seems to be a girl but want to be recognized as a guy,” Dragun prefers to be identified as a man.

During her appearance in bail court, Dragun questioned the judge, “Do I still have to remain in the men’s unit?”

Her publicist informed various news sites that Dragun’s detention in the men’s section was “disturbing and hazardous.”

According to Miami-Dade Corrections, however, Dragun has never existed.

“Inmate Dragun never completed the booking procedure prior to her release; consequently, she was never put in a men’s facility,” stated prisons official Juan Diasgranados. “All detainees undertaking our intake procedure must stay in an open sitting (open booking) area in the presence of correctional officers.

Diasgranados stated that Dragun was put in a detention cell by herself owing to her “high-profile status” prior to her release and that she was accompanied by an LGBTQ officer for her entire stay at the jail.

The statement stated, “The Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department (MDCR) is dedicated to defending the rights of the transgender community and all LGBTQ individuals.” We are dedicated to ensuring that all convicts in our care, including transgender individuals, are handled correctly throughout the intake, classification, and placement processes.

NBC 6 has reached out to Dragun’s publicist but has not received a response.

Her bail was set at $2,000 dollars. Since then, she has been freed from prison.

The YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok accounts of Dragun, well-known for her cosmetics, style, and candor on her gender identity and transition, have gained millions of followers.
