Police placed a bouncer at a Miami Beach hotel under arrest after allegedly beating up a patron.

WSVN.com reports that the incident occurred in 2021 at the Nautilis by Arlo hotel on Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The altercation apparently began when the victim and the bouncer began arguing over the dress code. The victim’s wife reportedly spit in the bouncer’s face, leading to the attack.

The report quotes the victim’s wife as saying “The bouncer snapped his neck,” adding that "The bouncer works here. They fired him on the spot after they snapped his neck.”

A good Samaritan, who claimed to be a doctor, helped the victim after the bouncer slammed the victim's head into a glass door and kicked him in the head,  possibly causing a "minimum concussion". 

First responders later transported him to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Police later arrested the bouncer and charged him with two counts of aggravated battery.
