Orlando City Commissioner Regina Hill’s son was arrested Friday after Orange County Sheriff’s Office raided a home owned by Hill. 

Rakeem Hill and four other people were arrested at the home on Baywood Avenue, which OCSO says it was surveilling for months, WFTV 9 reports. His charges include trafficking meth and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.



Regina Hill released a statement over the weekend through her lawyer, saying "The commissioner is both shocked and saddened by the events that occurred yesterday at the house she owns on Baywood Avenue. As this is news to her, she has no comments on the matter at this time. The commissioner asks that the media is respectful of her family, as she deals with matters that involve her son. Although her son is an adult, like any mother or citizen, she is concerned."
