Gimenez Jr “allegedly battered” the commissioner, according to a press release from the Coral Gables Police.

“The commissioner’s Sergeant-At-Arms detained Mr. Gimenez Jr. until officers from the Coral Gables Police Department arrived,” the press release states.

Diaz de la Portilla has released a statement about the incident via Twitter, calling Gimenez Jr a “coward.”

“It was more like a flick of his wrist from behind me when I was having lunch as he cowardly approached me from behind and ran away.

“This guy is not known as a very courageous guy.

“Actually he’s quite a coward and appeared to be under the influence.”

It is unclear what prompted the incident.

Gimenez Jr and Miami commissioner Diaz de la Portilla reportedly have ties dating back more than ten years.

The Miami Herald reports Diaz de la Portilla was a consultant for Gimenez Jr’s father, Carlos Gimenez, when he became mayor of Miami-Dade County in 2011 during a special election.

In 2020, Gimenez was elected to the US House of Representatives.

Gimenez Jr is a known lawyer and lobbyist in the Miami area.

Diaz de la Portilla serves as the City of Miami Commissioner for District One.
