Popular MMOs Pat, a YouTube star and gamer whose real name is Patrick Julianelle, was arrested on a battery accusation but is now out of custody, according to online records from Duval County, Florida. He wrote on Twitter that he was subjected to “false accusations.”
A police report obtained by Heavy.com says that both Pat and his girlfriend, Elizabeth “Liz” Heranek, were arrested because they gave “opposing stories.”
“Based on the opposing stories and no independent witnesses both subjects were placed under arrest for domestic battery and transported to the PDTF without incident. Both individuals refused to complete any of the domestic violence paperwork or provide a written statement or have their injuries photographed,” the report says.
Online records show Pat, whose full real name is Patrick Thomas Julianelle, was taken into custody at 11:15 p.m. on May 16, 2021, by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department in Jacksonville, Florida.
We obtained Julianelle’s booking photo. Here is the mugshot:
As of May 19, 2021, Julianelle was listed as “out of custody.” He was arrested on an accusation of domestic battery – cause bodily harm, according to jail records obtained by Heavy.
Heavy also confirmed this information with the public information officer for Jacksonville police, who said, “Yes, he was arrested” and confirmed the alleged charge.
Pat has addressed the allegations on his Twitter page, writing, “Don’t believe everything you hear. I will need to address the false accusations soon. And Eleni thanks for leaking my address and harassing me and Liz when she told you to stop posting about her and you refused. You are a terrible person. Okay the last tweet was too much.”
He has continued to write about the situation, writing on May 24, “I see Eleni changed her profile picture on Youtube to a mugshot. Guess she is getting ready early for all the slander and defamation of character.”
He also wrote: “Still haven’t posted anything because it’s so complicated. There are people I don’t want to hurt with my response. I’ve never hurt anyone but I’d almost rather take the hate myself. They never tell you how hard it will be to have a job in the public eye…”
