MIAMI -- A prominent Miami politician was arrested Monday night at Miami International Airport.
Real estate developer and City Commissioner Johnny Winton was waiting for a flight out of MIA that was delayed. Witnesses said Winton complained to the ticket agent and became so upset and agitated that Miami-Dade police officers were called.
Officers asked Winton to leave, and said that he refused. They detained Winton and, as he was being taken out, he is accused of kicking one officer and elbowing another.
Then, Winton slipped, fell and hit his head, authorities said.
Winton was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Winton faces one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of battery on a law enforcement officer.
