Miko Grimes, the wife of Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes, was arrested on Sunday before Miami's catastrophic loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Grimes was arrested for resisting with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

According to a report from NBC 6 South Florida's Adam Kuperstein, a witness claimed that Grimes tried to cross a police barricade before getting tackled by a cop.

Screaming Obscenities

Kuperstein also reported Grimes was "belligerent" and started screaming obscenities. She resisted arrest and head-butted an officer, which is likely what led to the charge of battery on a law enforcement officer. She also tried kicking an officer and started swinging her elbows as she resisted.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Grimes was booked into jail in Miami-Dade County and later released on bond. The Sun-Sentinel also said she was treated for injuries to her knee, arm and forearm.

Head-Butting an Officer

Grimes was threatened with a taser, the Sun-Sentinel said as it cited the police report, and she complied. But when she was being transported for booking on a golf cart she started to resist again.

Grimes is outspoken, and she is a public figure around Miami. She hosts a radio show there, and has drawn the attention of the NFL with her criticisms, sometimes through her Twitter feed.

A video of the incident was uploaded on to YouTube last night. You can check it out below...
