A Miami Beach Police report shows Miami Dolphins‘ defensive back Jonathon Amaya was arrested early Monday morning for reportedly choking a taxi driver.
The report says Amaya offered the driver $100.00 to take him from Miami Beach to Weston. The driver accepted but the driver told police Amaya became aggressive throughout the trip so he turned the car around and told Amaya to get out. The driver says Amaya did not take that well, he leaned forward, wrapped his hands around the driver’s neck and began to choke him.
Officers watched as the scene unfolded and heard the driver scream “this man is trying to kill me.”
The driver was not injured and Jonathon Amaya was arrested on the scene.
