Miko Grimes, the wife of Miami Dolphins' cornerback Brent Grimes, was arrested at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday. 


  • Miko Grimes allegedly tried to cross an area in which police had restricted people from walking in.
  • Miami-Dade police officer grabbed her arm to stop her, but Grimes was able to get away.
  • Another officer told Grimes to stop and also to relax, that's when Grimes allegedly started shouting curse words at officers.
  • Grimes, when standing after being placed in handcuffs, then allegedly head butted an officer. 
  • An officer took his taser out, pointed it at Grimes, and advised her should would be tased if she didn't relax.
  • While being initially transported on a Miami-Dade Police golf cart, Grimes allegedly was continually kicking the officer whom had to hold her down.
  • Grimes was treated for minor injuries and then arrested.

Miami-Dade Police spokesperson Det. Alvaro Zabaleta said Grimes was charged with:

  • Battery on a law-enforcement officer
  • Resisting with violence
  • Disorderly conduct

First report of the arrest came via Twitter user Francisco Rosario who was outside the stadium and posted a video

This isn't the first time Grimes found herself in the spotlight. She went on a Twitter rant on her way home from the NFL Pro Bowl in January. I was able to exclusively speak to her after she landed at Miami International Airport.

Miami-Dade Police Department Detective Zabaleta said usually in a case like Grimes', the person would be given a trespass warning and not be allowed back. Banning Grimes "is something that (special events police officers) are going to have to discuss," Zabaleta said.
