Andrew Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee and Democratic candidate for Governor of Florida in 2018, was named in a report detailing an alleged overdose incident inside a Miami Beach hotel room where alleged bags of crystal meth were found inside.
The report details the incident early Friday morning inside the hotel located off West Avenue after police were called to respond to a cardiac arrest. Police said three men including Andrew were inside the hotel room at the time.
According to police, one of the men identified as Aldo Mejias called rescue crews after he arrived at the hotel and found both Andrew and Travis Dyson in an inebriated state. Aldo told officers he began performing first aid on Dyson after he collapsed and began throwing up on a bed while Andrew was throwing up inside a bathroom.
Rescue crews took Travis to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, while Andrew was allowed to leave the room without being detained, the report said. The report did not list any arrests as being made.
In a statement, Andrew said he was in town for a wedding celebration and admitted to having too much to drink.
“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.”
Travis said that Andrew did not mention attending a wedding. He said that he and Andrew had been friends since last spring, “I personally was not celebrating a wedding. I don’t know if Andrew was in town for a wedding. He did not mention that.”
Andrew, who narrowly lost to current Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in the 2018 race that was recounted in Broward County among other locations, has spent time working as a political commentator and working on Democratic election efforts since the loss.
It looks like a threesome of sorts was about to go down before Andrew and Travis dabbled in meth. Who does meth?!
R Jai Gillum take your dignity and leave that man!
It was just a matter of time until the footage was released, here is the wanna be governor naked on the floor of the hotel room with another man.
Andrew has entered rehab for alcohol abuse, its not alcohol he needs help with.

The image seems to be taken with an iPhone and was taken most likely by Aldo Mejias, who may have been naked as well.
