Updated on 13 April: Please note that claims of N3on's 1-year prison sentence have been refuted by sources close to him. At this time, there are no confirmed details or official statements regarding the specifics of his case. This is a developing story and we will update this page as we learn more.

Kick streamer Neon ("N3on") has reportedly been sentenced to a year in prison in Dubai for illegally filming and live-streaming without proper permits. Neon, whose real name is Rangesh Mutama, and his girlfriend Sam Frank were detained by Dubai police on April 8, 2024, during an IRL (in real life) stream at the Global Village in Dubai.

According to reports, the couple was filming and live-streaming without the required permits, leading to their eventual arrest by the Dubai authorities and presumed subsequent legal proceedings. This incident is just the latest in a series of controversial actions by Neon, who has a history of stirring up drama both on and off-camera.

In a previous incident, Neon was temporarily banned from the streaming platform Kick for threatening to dox and sexually assault a minor, actions that sparked widespread outrage and condemnation from the online community. Despite the seriousness of these allegations, N3on has continued to push the boundaries of what is considered acceptable behavior for a public figure.

However, his latest actions in Dubai have now supposedly resulted in a year-long prison sentence, potentially highlighting the consequences of ignoring local laws and regulations while engaging in public activities. While the reports remain unconfirmed at this time, N3on's story serves as a cautionary tale for content creators who may be tempted to prioritize views and engagement over safety and legality. 

The news of Neon's supposed prison sentence has sparked a range of reactions online, with many expressing shock and disbelief at the severity of the punishment. However, it is clear that the authorities in Dubai are taking a firm stance on illegal filming and broadcasting in public spaces, sending a strong message to those who may consider flouting the rules in the future.
