Multifamily syndicator Patrick Carroll was arrested in Hollywood late Monday and booked on a felony charge, The Real Deal has learned.

Records show the arrest occurred at 9:30 p.m. on July 1, with Carroll officially booked in the early morning hours Tuesday by the Hollywood Division of the Los Angeles Police Department. Carroll remains in custody, according to records available through the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as of Tuesday afternoon.

It’s unclear what prompted the arrest, with spokespeople for the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department unable to immediately provide details about the incident.

Carroll, who struck a deal last year to sell his Atlanta-based development firm Carroll Organization for $80 million, appears to have been in Los Angeles for at least the past month. His legal name is Michael Patrick Carroll.

Videos and posts on his Instagram account place him on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood and in the Hollywood Hills. Within the 24 hours prior to Carroll’s booking, he posted videos of himself driving around the streets of Los Angeles in a Rolls Royce, shopping at a Big 5 Sporting Goods store and lounging in the pool of a home he said he was staying at for the next month.

The arrest is the latest in a number of legal incidents involving the multifamily mogul, but it’s the first in Los Angeles. Previously, a court ordered him to undergo a mental health evaluation after a neighbor reported gunshots near Carroll’s home in Miami Beach. Police used Florida’s Red Flag law, passed in 2018, to obtain a court order for temporary seizure of Carroll’s firearms.  

In October, he was arrested for felony battery after two Gold Rush Cabaret employees in Miami accused Carroll of assault. Carroll’s behavior has also resulted in him being banned from several ritzy Miami restaurants, including Carbone, Hiyakawa Miami and Cote Miami.
