“Our officers had to go into a crowd, attempt to arrest an individual,” Officer Ernesto Rodriguez of the Miami Beach Police Department. “The crowd ended up turning on those officers who were there.”
Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber warned the public more arrests will be made if laws continue to be violated.
