DAVIE, Fla. (CBSMiami/AP) — Miami Dolphins player Brent Grimes says his wife’s arrest has not distracted him from football.
Tamiko “Miko” Grimes is scheduled for arraignment on Oct. 27th on charges of disorderly conduct, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest with violence. She was arrested Sunday while walking in the stadium parking lot, and police say she disobeyed an officer’s command to stop, became combative and head-butted an officer.
“Miko is fine,” Grimes said Wednesday, talking publicly about the incident for the first time. “I really don’t want to talk about Miko. That will handle itself.”
When asked if the matter was a distraction for him, Grimes said no.
“I’m good. Stuff will happen, but you have to focus on your job,” he said.
The Dolphins will try to bounce back from a 41-14 loss to Buffalo when they play Sunday against the Jets in London
