MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miko Grimes, the wife of Miami Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes, will no longer be hosting a show on 560 WQAM following her arrest last Sunday.
Grimes was arrested outside of Sun Life Stadium before the Dolphins played the Buffalo Bills when she refused to comply with the orders of police officers.
Police say while officers tried to control crowds outside the stadium, Grimes walked toward a restricted area. According to police, an officer told her loudly to stop, but she refused and kept walking.
The officer then told her she was under arrest, but Grimes got away due to the large crowd. Moments later she appeared again and continued to walk to the restricted area.
Other officers caught up with Grimes, whom they say became belligerent and charged at them. She yelled obscenities and told them, “you can’t tell me what to do.”
After tussling with Grimes and subduing her on the ground, officers say Grimes head butted a female officer.
Cell phone video shot by someone in the crowd and posted on social media shows police restraining Grimes on the ground, her hands cuffed behind her. She’s kicking and flailing, yelling at officers, “Are you ‘expletive’ kidding me?”
Moments later you see her lying on a golf cart as police take her through the stadium tunnels to their holding area.
Grimes was released from jail early Monday morning. She is scheduled for arraignment on October 27th, facing charges of battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest with violence.
Her husband Brent spoke publicly about his wife for the first time since the arrest on Wednesday afternoon.
“Miko is fine,” he said at the Dolphins training facility in Davie. “I really don’t want to talk about Miko. That will handle itself.”
