Jeremy Dewitte was arrested on December 8, 2020 at approximately 3:00 PM by Osceola County Sheriff’s Office. The deputies alleged Jeremy Dewitte failed to register his out-of-state travels to Los Angeles, California for a taping at the Dr. Phil Show.
Sex offenders are required to inform the sheriff’s office when they are traveling out of the state or when they are visiting a location for more than three consecutive days. Osceola County Sheriff’s Office claims Jeremy Dewitte vacationed in California from November 1, 2020 to November 5, 2020.
During Jeremy Dewitte’s initial appearance the presiding judge ordered a $1,500 bond for the felony charge. Prosecutors attempted to revoke Dewitte’s bond today but a hearing was scheduled for a later date instead. Jeremy Dewitte was released. One of the conditions of Jeremy Dewitte’s release is he may not leave Orange or Osceola County.
Today’s video is the first appearance by Jeremy Dewitte at the Osceola County Jail.
Metro-State Special Services has also released an online merchandise store with over 1,000 products. Pre-orders for Metro-State badges and patches will begin Friday, December 11, 2020. https://teespring.com/stores/metro-state-shop
Jeremy Dewitte was arrested today at 3:01 PM EST by Osceola County Sheriff’s Office. According to a source from the sheriff’s office Dewitte had a warrant for his arrest for failing to register a temporary address.
Allegedly Jeremy Dewitte left Orlando, Florida on November 1, 2020 on a flight to Los Angeles, California for a taping at the Dr. Phil Show in Los Angeles. He returned to Florida on November 5, 2020.
In the state of Florida a registered sex offender must report in person to the sheriff’s office within 48 hours before the date he intends to leave the state. Failing to register is a third degree felony and punishable by up to five years imprisonment.
Prior to his arrest Metro-State Special Services created an online merchandise shop with over 1,000 products for the public. Many of the products ironically read: Free Jeremy Dewitte.
On Friday November 13, 2020 a warrant was issued for Jeremy Dewitte’s arrest for a misdemeanor simple battery charge in a domestic violence case.
Detective Bradley Smith from Orlando Police Department believed he had probable cause for the arrest of Jeremy Dewitte after a complaint was filed. The victim claimed a former Metro-State Special Services contractor named Whitney Tools-Nickols attempted to strike her and made threats towards her with Jeremy Dewitte’s ex-girlfriend Jessica Bolden. Jeremy Dewitte was present during this exchange.
In a recorded interview with Detective Smith, Jeremy Dewitte stated Whitney Tools-Nickols was the instigator in the situation and acting on behalf of his ex-girlfriend Jessica Bolden. Jeremy Dewitte claimed he tried to protect the victim from Tools-Nickols.
Although the victim made the complaint against Whitney Tools-Nickols and Jessica Bolden and didn’t name Jeremy Dewitte, he was questioned about his actions during the incident and an arrest warrant was created.
The victim went to Amir Ladan’s office and signed a declination of prosecution affidavit stating she never wanted to press charges against Jeremy Dewitte. Amir Ladan is Jeremy Dewitte’s defense attorney for all of his police impersonation cases. The victim contacted the State Attorney’s Office and said she wouldn’t participate in the prosecution of Jeremy Dewitte.
The victim said days after this incident she was followed from her place of employment for over 10 minutes by Whitney Tools-Nickols and Jessica Bolden who were in separate vehicles. She stated the two women tried to hit her car, drove on the wrong side of the road at times and ran red lights to chase her in and out of the city of Orlando. She claimed at least one of the women had a handgun during the 911 call which lasted during the chase. The victim was granted temporary injunctions against Whitney Tools-Nickols and Jessica Bolden, signed by Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton.
Jessica Bolden’s hearing was continued and Whitney Tools-Nickols has yet to be served despite efforts by multiple agencies to locate her in the counties of Orange, Osceola and Seminole. The temporary injunctions against Bolden and Tools-Nickols are still active.
The victim claims she contacted Detective Bradley Smith because she didn’t understand why Jeremy Dewitte was being targeted by Orlando Police Department. “I asked why he was being singled out when two people tried to run me off of the road with weapons and they could have killed me or someone else who wasn’t involved.”
It wasn’t the first time Jessica Bolden was accused of maliciously using her vehicle. In a recorded interview with Corporal John Ramsey in October 2019, Jeremy Dewitte and Ramsey discussed an altercation between Dewitte’s wife, Rania, and Jessica Bolden. According to Jeremy Dewitte, his wife’s vehicle was struck and damaged by Jessica Bolden multiple times in 2019.
Detective Bradley Smith asked the victim to identify Whitney Tools-Nickols and Jessica Bolden in a follow-up email.
During this time a warrant was released for Jeremy Dewitte’s arrest. The victim contacted Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and asked an agent to speak to Orlando Police Department about the direction of the case and the warrant that was issued for Dewitte but not for Whitney Tools-Nickols and Jessica Bolden. The victim claimed she was guided to Orlando Police Department by 911 dispatch because there were I.R.I.S police cameras in the area. The cameras were able to capture the suspects chasing the victim. On November 24, 2020 Orlando Police Department filed stalking charges against Whitney Tools-Nickols and Jessica Bolden.
Stalking in the state of Florida is considered a first degree misdemeanor when a person repeatedly and maliciously follows or harasses another person. It is punishable by up to one year in prison and a $1,000 fine. It is considered a third degree felony when a person repeatedly and maliciously follows another person and makes a credible threat towards that person with the intent to cause fear of death or bodily harm. It is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
Jeremy Dewitte turned himself in on November 29, 2020. His initial appearance was the following morning at 9:00 AM EST. Judge Amy J. Carter announced the State Attorney’s Office decided not to pursue the charges and the case was dropped before his hearing. Dewitte’s defense attorney Amir Ladan emphasized the errors in assigning the case as domestic violence. The victim and Jeremy Dewitte never lived together and were never married.
Amir Ladan went on to say he felt it was an attempt by law enforcement to manipulate the information and another way to have Jeremy Dewitte’s bonds revoked from his police impersonation arrests. The victim thanked the judge for choosing not to move forward with revoking Jeremy Dewitte’s bonds.
Jeremy Dewitte was released at 2:00 PM EST on the day of his hearing. Despite turning himself in on November 29 and attending his first appearance on November 30, Osceola County Sheriff’s Office arrived at his front door later that evening. The sheriff’s office claimed the warrant was still active in their system.
In the end Osceola County Sheriff’s Office admitted there was an error on their end and a deputy sheriff apologized for the mistake.
In today’s video there is a clip of the 911 call between the victim, a dispatcher and an Orlando Police Department officer during the alleged stalking chase. Jeremy Dewitte’s initial appearance at Orange County jail is also included, as well as exclusive footage of Osceola County deputies attempting to locate Dewitte at his home to arrest him for the warrant that was no longer valid.
On September 28, 2020 a producer from The Dr. Phil Show contacted Jeremy Dewitte and asked him if he would like the opportunity to tell his side of the story on national television regarding his police impersonation cases in Orlando, Florida.
JeremyDewitteCase.com was also contacted by The Dr. Phil Show. According to a producer, this website showed a different side of the story and was the reason they wanted to hear Jeremy Dewitte’s version of events.
YouTube’s Real World Police was contacted as well. A producer stated they made several attempts to have a phone conversation with Jay Horowitz who operates the channel but they were dodged and communication only occurred via Twitter and email. The producer claimed the channel owner was worried about lawsuits against him.
The producer stated there were other channels and blogs the show was considering to bring on to replace Real World Police in the event they refused to appear on the show.
Ultimately after multiple emails, extensive phone calls and video messages regarding COVID-19 testing, topics that would be discussed, fees and accommodations, Jeremy Dewitte and his defense attorney Amir Ladan signed the appropriate release forms to appear on Dr. Phil’s show in Los Angeles, California.
Days before his flight to California, Jeremy Dewitte’s “Motor One” motorcycle was picked up by an auto transport company in Orlando and delivered to Los Angeles by the show. Dewitte and Amir Ladan were also required to produce negative COVID-19 results prior to boarding their flights.
On October 29, 2020 Dr. Phil’s show sent a videographer to Orlando, Florida to take B-roll footage of Jeremy Dewitte while he discussed Metro-State Special Services, showcased his fleet of vehicles and rode his motorcycle in the city. The motorcycle ride was cut short because unmarked Orange County Sheriff’s Office vehicles were directly behind Dewitte during the shoot.
On November 1, 2020 Jeremy Dewitte flew to Los Angeles, California to begin the four-day filming process.
Jeremy Dewitte was tested two more times for COVID-19 in California at Hollywood Urgent Care. During his first day of filming he was interviewed at The Loft by a segment producer for the show while Amir Ladan joined in virtually from his Los Angeles hotel room due to COVID-19 restrictions at the location.
On his second day of filming Jeremy Dewitte was given a polygraph examination using the Empirical Scoring System, Multinomial (ESS-M). Jeremy Dewitte volunteered for the test and was never asked to take the exam by the show.
Prior to his examination the producers for The Dr. Phil Show stated the questions would cover the time period of 2011 to 2020.
In Part Two of this post we will discuss the types of questions but not the specific questions that were asked, the polygraph examiner’s background and why Jeremy Dewitte volunteered for the exam, while being mindful that the episode has yet to air and certain topics will not be discussed until this occurs.
Producers for the show agreed to bring security expert John Stirn on the stage. Stirn is the owner of the lucrative company Southwest Patrol in Los Angeles, California. John Stirn started Southwest Patrol in 1994. He has contracts with several businesses in the area and provides security detail for the Los Angeles Lakers.
After he met Jeremy Dewitte in person John Stirn stated his opinions about Dewitte changed and he could see the harassment and corruption from the police departments.
The show reached out to Windermere Police Department, Orlando Police Department and Orange County Sheriff’s Office several times and according to the producers they received generic responses from the agencies.
The producers claimed Real World Police refused to make an appearance and in lieu of Jay Horowitz they chose a YouTuber with the channel name of Blue Bacon to join the stage.
During his pre-interview the YouTuber Blue Bacon claimed he knew Jeremy Dewitte was impersonating police despite giving Dewitte a neutral interview several months before and stating he wanted to help Metro-State Special Services at the time.
Dr. Phil and Jeremy Dewitte confronted the YouTuber about his new attitude towards Metro-State and Jeremy Dewitte. When confronted Blue Bacon allegedly backed down and recanted his accusatory statements. During a commercial break Dr. Phil asked the producers to politely remove Blue Bacon from the stage.
Dr. Phil, Jeremy Dewitte and Amir Ladan continued to discuss Jeremy Dewitte’s and Dr. Phil’s love for motorcycles, Dewitte’s pending felony cases and Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Dr. Phil expressed he didn’t believe Dewitte belonged in prison and he didn’t believe any prison time was necessary or helpful.
Because the show has yet to air we cannot go into deeper detail about what occurred onstage or behind the scenes at this time. In Part Two of this post we will discuss the polygraph examination. Once the show airs we will be able to release more information about the filming process.

On October 11, 2020 Jeremy Dewitte was involved in a traffic accident in Orlando, Florida. Florida Highway Patrol was contacted as well as Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Orange County deputies Jared Alexander, Donald Muller, Troy Polk and Christin Hackey and Trooper Tyler Carstensen arrived on scene.
A motorist named Shamar Smith was traveling westbound on Clarcona Ocoee Road in a left turn lane as he approached the intersection of Apopka Vineland Road. According to Trooper Tyler Carstensen’s report Jeremy Dewitte was also traveling westbound on Clarcona Ocoee Road towards the intersection of Apopka Vineland Road.
Shamar Smith claimed he was in the left turning lane because he was going into a neighborhood to take an alternate route home, but Smith also admitted he made an attempt to overtake Jeremy Dewitte’s vehicle.
Jeremy Dewitte claimed there was a funeral procession in the right lane as he was heading west on Clarcona Ocoee Road in the left travel lane. He stated he saw Shamar Smith change into the left turn lane and attempt to go around him. However Smith shifted back into the left travel lane when he saw a median, and the right side of Smith’s vehicle collided into Dewitte’s SUV.
Prior to speaking to Jeremy Dewitte, Trooper Carstensen spoke to Shamar Smith and the Orange County deputies at the scene.
Orange County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched when Shamar Smith was heard on a 911 call making physical threats after the traffic accident. Despite the threats Orange County Sheriff’s Office didn’t speak to all of the witnesses nor did they take any witness statements.
According to comments made by Jeremy Dewitte in his body camera video, Deputy Christin Hackey tried several times in the past to obtain Dewitte’s automobile insurance information at the request of Sergeant Keith Vidler from Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
When Trooper Tyler Carstensen arrived it appeared the deputies discussed Jeremy Dewitte’s pending criminal cases as well as Florida Statute 3 1 6. 1 9 7 4.
Carstensen initially declared Jeremy Dewitte as Driver 1 which would allude to the automobile accident being his fault. Trooper Carstensen claimed Dewitte impeded the flow of traffic during the funeral procession. During a brief debate Dewitte insisted he was following the statute and Shamar Smith improperly used the left turn lane to overtake Dewitte’s vehicle.
Trooper Carstensen’s final report named Shamar Smith as Driver 1 and Jeremy Dewitte as Driver 2.
In today’s video Jeremy Dewitte and Trooper Tyler Carstensen discuss the traffic accident as well as Sergeant Keith Vidler’s phone calls to Dewitte’s insurance company in an attempt to have his automobile insurance canceled.
