Popular content creator and Kick streamer Yousef Saleh Erakat, aka Fousey, was arrested by the Miami Police Department at a Miami Hotel during a live stream on the Kick platform, according to Newsweek.

Fousey, 33, was streaming on Kick Tuesday night at the InterContinental Miami hotel where he could be heard screaming at a police dispatcher on the phone as someone from his team attempted to calm him down, according to TMZ.

Fousey claimed to the dispatcher that somoen had been harassing him or even threatening to kill him, and in an attempt to rush Miami officers to his hotel room he reportedly tells them he has a gun pointed at his head as he begs for them to speed to his location.

"YouTube, everybody. The internet's hating me. It's now 2023 [and] I'm 33 years old. Might have signed a multi-million-dollar deal, dog," Fousey said, per Newsweek, while referring to the multiple bans he had received on the Twitch video game streaming platform.

"I'm gonna retire my entire family."

"I'm on the Miami freeway by the way," he added.

Per Newsweek, Fousey reportedly said: "A guy told me I'm going to die tonight and I'm going to relax?"

Fousey screamed "Help, there's a gun to my head," and then stated "send the f****** cops."

Another video surfaced on X (formerly Twitter) social media platform where Fousey repeated that warning when police officers showed up who then placed him in handcuffs.

"Are you going to arrest a Palestinian Muslim, who's viral? Are y'all dumb?" Fousey yelled at the officers.

Fousey was also seen ranting as he walked down a Miami freeway, according to The Daily Beast.

Fousey, who has more than 10 million subscribers on YouTube, is known for his parodies and his comedy sketches.
