Police Reports Show Repeat Domestic Violence, Theft at Steve Bannon's Miami Address
Eleven times in one year, Miami Police received calls for help at a tree-lined, three-bedroom house in Miami's Coconut Grove neighborhood.
Some came from tenants in distress inside the home. Others were placed by neighbors concerned about loud arguing. All reflect back on White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who rented the house for his most recent ex-wife in 2015 and 2016.
Police reports obtained this week by New Times, which show calls for everything from domestic violence to a stolen gun, are just the latest revelation of Bannon's odd Miami connection. The über-powerful Trump adviser has had a presence here since 2013, when he first rented a home on Opechee Drive for his ex, former Irish model Diane Clohesy. The new records come from a second house, on Onaway Drive, that Bannon rented for Clohesy when the first lease came to an end. Neighbors say Bannon never resided at either home despite listing the addresses as his residence on a voter registration form.
The new records cast more light on Clohesy's turbulent life in South Florida, where she struggled with drug addiction and alcohol abuse. Neighbors and a former housemate tell New Times the police reports are an accurate reflection of a truly dysfunctional household.
