Miko Grimes, the wife of Miami Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes, was arrested on charges of battery on a police officer, resisting arrest with violence and disorderly conduct, Miami-Dade police confirmed to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald.
According to an arrest report, Grimes attempted to walk through an area near the southeast gate that was restricted, where police had formed for crowd control.
Officers said they gave her several loud verbal warnings to stop, but she kept going. After an officer grabbed her by her right arm, she broke away and continued, yelling obscenities at them, the report said.
When officers attempted to subdue her, putting her in a bear-hug, she resisted. Officers tried repeatedly to subdue her but Grimes, now on the ground, flailed her arms and kicked, according to the report.
After officers handcuffed her and lifted her to her feet, she suddenly jerked her head backward, head-butting an officer, the report said.
Grimes continued resisting and an officer pulled out a Taser, pointed it at her and warned her to calm down.
Grimes complied; she was not shocked with a Taser. After she was put on a golf cart to be transported for booking, she again started to resist, according to the report.
Grimes was taken to the police station where she received treatment for injuries to her right arm, knee and forearm.
In addition to disorderly conduct, Grimes was arrested for resisting with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer.
She was booked into jail in Miami-Dade County and later released on bond.
Contacted by cellphone Monday morning, Grimes was asked by a reporter how she was doing.
“None of your f—— business,” she said. “Don’t call my phone again.”
Social media pictures of the arrest show Grimes being pinned to the pavement by officers.
Grimes, 40, of Davie, is a host on sports radio 560-WQAM. She also posts regularly on Twitter with feeds that are occasionally critical of the NFL.
Earlier this year, she went on an expletive-laced Twitter rant, accusing the NFL of not caring about domestic violence, players or their families. She further accused the league of robbing her husband of the Pro Bowl MVP award.
A Dolphins spokesman said the team is aware of Sunday’s incident and deferred all questions to Miami-Dade police.
