Wife of defensive back Brent Grimes arrested at Sunday's game.
Miko Grimes, the audacious local radio sports talk show host and wife of Pro Bowl Miami Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes, was arrested Sunday afternoon at Sun Life Stadium on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
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.
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.
Brent Grimes did not talk to reporters Sunday night.
At the Dolphins' practice facility in Davie, the team's locker room was open to reporters from 2:45 p.m. to 3:25 p.m. on Monday. Brent Grimes wasn't there during that period.
Fellow defensive back Michael Thomas said he had spoken with his teammate since the incident. "I think he's all right," Thomas said. "We all deal with issues. I think he'll be all right."
Other players in the locker room declined to comment. Coach Joe Philbin also declined to address the situation in his Monday press conference.
