Dragun’s rep, Jack Ketsoyan, told TMZ: “The situation with Nikita, who is legally female, being placed in a men’s unit of a Florida jail is extremely disturbing and dangerous.”

He complained that the decision made by the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department “directly violates their protocol, which mandates that transgender inmates are classified and housed based on safety needs and gender identity”.

Since her arrest was made public, a video has gone viral in which Dragun says 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.”
