In addition to the felony assault charge, Dragun was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges. Authorities set her bond at $2,000, according to the correctional center’s inmate profile for her.
Dragun reportedly had an altercation with Miami-based DJ and producer duo Black V Neck over the weekend at LIV, a nightclub in Miami. Speaking to NBC News, the duo said that after telling her not to take their liquor bottle, she pushed one of them.
Hours before she was arrested, Dragun tweeted about the incident, saying that she saw one of the artists push a woman at the event – a claim that Black V Neck has denied.
“This man PUSHED the fiancé of the VP of Warner and Atlantic. who i am currently in talks with to fund #BendMeOver,” Dragun wrote in one of her tweets.
“Bottom line. I see a man put hands on a woman. please ‘call the cops.’ cus need u forget. I know i look like a Doll on the outside, but I still hit like a Dude,” she added in another tweet.
Known for her content about her gender transition, makeup and style, Dragun has over 3.54 million subscribers on YouTube and more than 9 million followers on Instagram.
