Former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum was caught with his pants down - literally - at an alleged meth orgy with two men Thursday night.
According to a police report obtained by conservative activist Candace Owens, Gillum was arrested in a drug-filled hotel room with two other men last night in Miami Beach.
This is the alleged friend that @AndrewGillum claims he was “helping” after a wedding.
He is an openly gay man, whose public profile has very few photos of him clothed.
His sexuality is only relevant bc as I said earlier—police suspected they had disrupted a drug/sex party. pic.twitter.com/CRKAk1AiQ5

According to the police report, Gillum, 40, was arrested in a Miami Beach hotel room with two other men in various stages of undress. Police responded to the location after one of the men overdosed on crystal meth.
The drugs were in three small baggies on the bed and the floor in full view of cops. One of the men told police that when he arrived at the hotel shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday, Gillum and the person having the medical issue were "inside the room under the influence of an unknown substance."
The police observed Gillum, who was partially undressed, in a bathroom vomiting. He was unable to communicate with officers due to his level of inebriation.
Gillum confirmed he was the man in the police report. The failed gubernatorial candidate released a statement on Friday, calling his arrest a "distraction".
"I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends. While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines. I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement."
Gillum, who is married, added that he will spend "the next few weeks" with his family and asked for privacy during this embarrassing time.
Gillum and his wife of 11 years, R. Jai Howard, have three children. Gillum, a Democrat, served as the 126th Mayor of Tallahassee from 2014 to 2018.
