On Sunday night, Hithon was fatally shot by Miami Beach police after striking an officer with her BMW. Witnesses on the scene claimed Hithon appeared to be under the influence of either drugs or alcohol.  

As a result of Hithon hitting the accelerator in the group of pedestrians, Officer David Cajuso was knocked to the ground. Cajuso has since been released from the hospital, reported CBS Miami.
