We ask our community to be carefully aware for their safety.”

Dyer-Mitchell has a long list of arrests.
Miami Beach police officers arrested Dyer-Mitchell on Jan. 3, 2022, in South Beach after accusing him of placing a nail between his knuckles and punching a man with it in the face outside of a hostel.

Records show witnesses told Miami Beach police officers that Dyer-Mitchell was drinking straight out of a bottle of vodka and police officers found ecstasy and marijuana in his backpack.

Court records show Miami-Dade prosecutors dropped the marijuana possession charges.

The court withheld adjudication on the felony charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and possession of a controlled substance, and on the alcohol-related municipal ordinance, records show.

Court records show that without having to go to prison with a 2-year probation sentence, corrections released Dyer-Mitchell to the Camillus House for services. His probation started on June 22, 2022, and ended on Sept. 11.

Detectives asked anyone with information about this or other cases to call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
