Travis Dyson Andrew Gillum
Gillum has said that he was in Miami for a wedding. The former Tallahassee mayor admitted to “drinking too much” but denied that he had taken any drugs. Gillum was too drunk to speak to the police when they arrived at the scene, documents say.
Speaking to the Miami New Times, Dyson said that Gillum did not mention attending a wedding. In his statement, Gillum referred to Dyson as a “friend.” Dyson said that he and Gillum had been friends since last spring. Dyson told the website, “I personally was not celebrating a wedding. I don’t know if [Gillum] was in town for a wedding. He did not mention that.”
The man who rented the room, Aldo Mejias, 53, said he went to the room before midnight on March 12. Mejias said that he found Dyson and Gillum “under the influence of an unknown substance.” Mejias said that Gillum had been vomiting into the toilet and that Dyson was unconscious. Mejias performed CPR on Dyson until the paramedics arrived. The incident occurred at the Mondrian South Beach Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida.
The drug in question was crystal meth. Those narcotics were impounded. It’s not clear if Gillum or Dyson will be facing any charges. Gillum was allowed to leave the scene and return home by officers.
Former Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum was allegedly present during an incident involving crystal meth at a Miami Beach hotel early this morning, according to an incident report obtained by New Times. A source with knowledge of the incident confirmed that Gillum’s date of birth matches the identifying information of the Andrew Gillum whose name is on an incident report circulating on Twitter this morning. Gillum served as mayor of Tallahassee from 2014 to 2018.
In a statement to Miami Herald reporter David Smiley, Gillum said, “I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends. While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines.”
The incident is not being treated as a criminal matter. A copy of the report is embedded below. Police redacted Gillum’s contact information in black; New Times has used blue bars to redact information regarding other people named in the report.
According to the documents, police responded to a cardiac-arrest distress call just before 1 a.m. at the Mondrian South Beach. When two officers from the Miami Beach Police Department arrived at the luxe hotel on West Avenue just north of 11th Street, they noted that Miami Beach Fire-Rescue was on scene treating a man for a possible drug overdose, but that the man, identified as Travis Dyson, was in stable condition.
The officers stated that the third man involved in the incident, Aldo Mejias, had lent Dyson his credit-card information to rent a hotel room yesterday afternoon and that the two were supposed to meet later that day. Mejias told the officers that he arrived at the hotel room around 11 p.m. and that Dyson opened the door and then immediately collapsed on a bed and began vomiting. Mejias said he began giving Dyson CPR and called 911.
Mejias told police Gillum was inside the hotel room “under the influence of an unknown substance.” Mejias said that while he was performing CPR on Dyson, Gillum was vomiting in a bathroom. Officers said that they tried to speak with Gillum but that he was “unable to communicate due to his inebriated state.”
Miami Beach Fire-Rescue said it responded to the hotel a second time for a “welfare check” on Gillum, at which time he was in a stable condition.
The officers said they found three small baggies of “suspected crystal meth” on “both the bed and floor of the hotel room.” Officers said Gillum left the hotel room “without incident” that night and went home.
Mejias did not immediately respond to emails, calls, and texts from New Times.
