Sausage Showdown: Israeli Diplomat’s Teenage Son Attacked in Jail Over Bizarre Conversation

1 Mins read

In a bizarre turn of events at a Florida jail on Wednesday, Avraham Gil, the 19-year-old son of an Israeli diplomat, found himself amid a bratwurst-inspired altercation that led to his assault. Gil, who had been previously arrested for striking a police officer with his motorcycle, was attacked while updating his mugshot at the Miami-Dade County jail.

According to reports from WPLG, Gil was engaged in a conversation about sausages with another inmate, Blake Elvis Ermus, 32, when the discussion took a violent turn. An incident report obtained by the outlet stated, “At some point, the defendant approached the victim and punched him multiple times.”

Ermus, who was in jail for a misdemeanour domestic battery charge, now faces felony battery by detainee charges, as per jail records.

The altercation adds another layer of drama to Gil’s already tumultuous legal saga. He had been sentenced to house arrest for striking a Sunny Isles police lieutenant with his motorcycle on January 27. The incident resulted in “incapacitating” leg injuries to the officer, who managed to apprehend Gil despite his injuries.

Gil’s penchant for reckless driving had drawn attention from law enforcement before. He faces felony charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer with violence.

During court proceedings, Gil’s legal team attempted to argue for his immunity from prosecution due to his father’s diplomatic status as the consul for administration at the Israeli Consulate in Miami. However, the court deemed him ineligible for such immunities.

“The Department is aware of this incident. We can confirm that, as the dependent of an Israeli consular officer, the concerned individual is not entitled to civil or criminal immunity,” stated the US State Department in a statement obtained by NBC Miami.

Despite the legal hurdles, Gil’s troubles continue as he navigates the aftermath of the assault and faces further court appearances. His next scheduled appearance is slated for March 12.

The incident serves as a reminder of the complexities surrounding diplomatic privileges and the challenges faced by individuals involved in legal disputes within the context of diplomatic relations.
