This is the sordid aftermath of the raucous drugs and booze party at a Florida hotel that left a male escort hospitalized and sent high-flying Democrat Andrew Gillum into rehab.

Gillum, a married dad-of-three who narrowly missed out on becoming Florida’s first black governor, was too ‘inebriated’ to tell cops what went down when they arrived at Miami’s Mondrian Hotel early last Friday.
He was inside room 1107 with two more men, one of them a hunky 30-year-old male escort named Travis Dyson, who was found naked and in the throes of a drug overdose.
A police report says the third man, Aldo Mejias, 56, dialed 911 when fitness freak Dyson began vomiting and collapsed.
He later told officers from the Miami Beach Police Department that he had walked in to find Gillum and Dyson ‘under the influence of an unknown substance’ and Gillum, 40, vomiting in the bathroom.

There’s also a small bottle of an injectable medicine containing alprostadil which is typically used to treat erectile dysfunction and should never be mixed with alcohol.

Cops declined to press charges and said Dyson, who posts X-rated photos and homemade porn movies on his profile page on the Rent.Men website, was likely to make a full recovery.
Gillum, a former Tallahassee mayor and regular CNN contributor, issued a statement within hours of the story leaking, apologizing for his drinking while insisting he never used meth.
He said he was in south Florida for a wedding but, when reached by telephone, Dyson told the Miami New Times that he had known Gillum ‘for a while’ and didn’t know anything about a wedding.

Mejias – described in the report as ‘the complainant’ – told officers he had given his credit card details to Dyson on Thursday afternoon to rent a hotel room
Paramedics were called to the four-star Mondrian South Beach hotel early Friday, which costs $220 per night
Gillum, who has three young children with his wife R. Jai Howard, whom he while studying at Florida A & M, issued a further statement Sunday evening.
‘After conversation with my family and deep reflection, I have made the decision to seek help, guidance and enter a rehabilitation facility at this time,’ he said.
‘This has been a wake-up call for me. Since my race for governor ended, I fell into a depression that has led to alcohol abuse.’
Gillum, who lost the gubernatorial election to Republican Ron DeSantis in 2018, is stepping down from ‘public facing roles’ to ‘heal fully and show up in the world as a more complete person’.
‘I want to apologize to my family, friends and the people of Florida who have supported me and put their faith in me over the years,’ he added, requesting privacy for his family.
According to the Miami Police Department, officers were called out at 12:55am last Friday after reports of a guest suffering a cardiac arrest at the four-star Mondrian in Miami’s South Beach party resort.
They arrived to find paramedics performing first aid on Dyson in the wake of ‘a suspected drug overdose’ and preparing to take him to the hospital.
‘Mr Mejias arrived at the hotel at approximately 23:07 hours where he discovered Travis Dyson and Andrew Gillum inside the room under the influence of an unknown substance,’ the report states.
‘Per Mr Mejias, Mr. Dyson opened the hotel room door and immediately walked over to the bed and collapsed in a prone position. Mr Mejias observed Mr Gillum inside of the bathroom vomiting.
‘Mr Mejias stated that he observed Mr Dyson having difficulty breathing, prompting him to wake him up. Mr Dyson then began vomiting on the bed and immediately collapsed again.
‘Mr Mejias began conducting chest compressions on Mr Dyson and proceeded to contact police and fire rescue.’
‘Officers then attempted to speak to Mr Gillum. Mr Gillum was unable to communicate with officers die to his inebriated state.’
The report says officers performed welfare checks on Gillum and he was described as being ‘in stable condition and his vitals are normal.’
Dyson, meanwhile, was conscious and in stable condition in the hospital.
