Miko Grimes

Exclusive: Brent Grimes' reaction when Miko is approached

By: Andy Slater

Brent Grimes took off his headphones to say hello to me and then turned back around. 

Never-before-released video may shed some light on how far removed the Miami Dolphins cornerback is from his wife. 

Brent told reporters on Wednesday, "my wife is my wife," after Miko's latest Twitter rant. "We don't speak the same thing," he added.

So, how different is the couple? 

I exclusively met with Miko and Brent at Miami International Airport in Jan. 2014 after yet another Twitter rant of her's. They were on their way back from the Pro Bowl in Arizona.

'We're two different people as you can see," Miko told me while standing at baggage claim. 

Until now, it's quite possible many Dolphins fans haven't actually been able to see that.

As you'll notice: Brent doesn't care much about a reporter approaching his wife at an airport. Not only does he turn away, he only seems to take his headphones off because I wanted to say hi.

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

Details:

  • 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.
