BREAKING: Disturbing Details Emerge on Overdose Incident Linked to Andrew Gillum

More details are emerging on the incident involving former Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum

Per Orlando Weekly, on Thursday night, Miami Beach Police say they responded to a potential crystal meth overdose at a hotel involving former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gilllum.

According to a police report obtained by multiple outlets, officers responded to a cardiac-arrest distress call at around 1 a.m. at the Mondrian South Beach Hotel. The call was “in reference to a cardiac arrest” involving an individual named Travis Dyson for a possible drug overdose. The report says when officers arrived, Miami Beach Fire-Rescue was already on scene treating Dyson, who was in stable condition.

WESH2 reports Andrew Gillum, a former gubernatorial candidate in Florida, was allegedly involved in a crystal meth incident in Miami Beach, officials said.

According to Miami Beach police, Aldo Mejias, 56, called police to the Mondrian Hotel on Miami Beach just after midnight Friday.

They were called in reference to a cardiac arrest.

When officials arrived, fire rescue was treating Travis Dyson, 30. He was being treated for a possible drug overdose. He was in stable condition, but was taken to the hospital for further treatment.

Police then made contact with Mejias and Gillum. Mejias told police he booked a hotel room for the night and met Dyson later in the day.

Mejias said he arrived to the hotel just after 11 p.m. He found Dyson and Gillum inside the room under the influence of an unknown substance.

Dyson opened the door to the hotel room and collapsed on the bed, while Gillum was vomiting in the bathroom, officials said.

Mejias then noticed that Dyson was having trouble breathing and began vomiting on the bed. That’s when Mejias called 911 and began to perform CPR.

Officials tried to speak to Gillum, but were unable to do so due to his inebriated state, police said.

Miami Beach Fire Rescue then responded a second time to the hotel for a welfare check on Gillum. They found that he was stable and his vitals were normal.

Police said they found three small clear plastic bags containing suspected crystal meth on both the bed and floor of the hotel room.

Gillum eventually went home without incident.

Gillum released a statement Friday afternoon saying, “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. I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement. I’m thankful to the incredible Miami Beach EMS team for their efforts. I will spend the next few weeks with my family and appreciate privacy during this time.”

Per TCO, Gillum’s account appears to be contradicted by what Travis Dyson told reporter Jessica Lipscomb.

Candace Owens tweeted:

This is the alleged friend that @AndrewGillum claims he was “helping” after a wedding.

He is an openly gay man, whose public profile has very few photos of him clothed.

His sexuality is only relevant bc as I said earlier—police suspected they had disrupted a drug/sex party.

Dyson appears to have been arrested. 

Some rumors are circulating that Dyson may be or have been a male escort or adult performer and internet archive links are circulating, but this remains unconfirmed at this time.

His Facebook profile says he is a ER Trauma Certified RN at AMITA Health Saint Francis Hospital Evanston and a former Registered Nurse at Emergency Department at Virginia Hospital Center

Miami Herald reports, according to public records, Dyson is a registered nurse who lives in Brickell. His Instagram account features selfies in scrubs and a medical coat. The page also features numerous photos of Dyson, clearly a body builder, posing on the beach, on boats or at night spots with friends, including his fiance. His public Instagram account was turned private sometime Friday afternoon.
