Fousey live streamed the call he made to 911 asking that they send officers to his location. The footage captured the moment when the officers arrived and began asking questions. They asked him who was threatening him. The YouTuber claimed that his life was in danger but that he did not know where the person was who threatened him.
"You guys are dumb as f***, man. You guys are literally dumb as f*** (...) My life is in danger and you arrest the Palestinian Muslim who's viral," Fousey shouted as he was handcuffed by authorities.
The streamer has about 10.4 million subscribers on YouTube and is known for his comedy sketches and his livestreams on Kick. Several media outlets such as the Daily Mail and The Sun, have tried to confirm the arrest and asked the Miami Police to comment. However, they have not received a reply.
