Transgender influencer Nikita Dragun, whose real name is Nikita Nguyen, has reportedly been arrested and placed in a men’s jail.

The vlogger and makeup artist, 26, has a staggering 9 million Instagram followers and 3.5 million YouTube subscribers.

Dragun made her name as a YouTuber in 2014 by sharing beauty tips with her followers.

As she transitioned from male to female, she took her fans along for the ride and documented the entire process.

However, she has recently made headlines for being arrested on November 7.

Dragun is believed to have walked around a Miami Beach hotel’s swimming pool in the nude before ‘dousing officers and security guards with water’, reports TMZ.

The news outlet claims to have obtained the police report on the incident. It reportedly states a cop responded to a disturbance call of someone being ‘extremely disorderly’.

Officers claimed that security informed them that Dragun ignored their demands to stop causing the disruption.

It’s believed she has been arrested for felony battery on a police officer, misdemeanour disorderly conduct and misdemeanour battery.

Dragun’s bond is reportedly $2,000.

Since the influencer’s arrest has been made public, a video has gone viral on Twitter in which Dragun claims she has been placed in a men’s unit at Miami-Dade Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.

She asks Judge Mindy Glazer: “Can I ask one question? Do I have to stay in the men’s unit still?”

To which someone responds: “Yeah, I don’t make the rules [there] but [it’s] proper accommodation for you.”

Fans are taking to the comments and expressed their concern over Dragun’s welfare since hearing the clip.

One writes: “I’m not a fan of Nikita Dragun nor am I defending her actions in any shape or form but when she was put into jail and forced to stay in a men’s unit, that’s heartbreaking and dangerous.

“Trans Women are Women.”

Another adds: “I’m not the biggest fan of Nikita Dragun however her being put in the MEN’s unit in the prison when she is a woman is completely out of control and needs to be fixed asap.

“No matter your thoughts on her that’s such an unsafe environment for her and such a disrespect for trans people.”
