Shortly before the Miami Dolphin's loss to the Buffalo Bills over the weekend, the wife of cornerback Brent Grimes, Miko, was arrested after allegedly accessing a restricted area and physically assaulting a police officer.
Miko Grimes was supposedly entering an area closed to the public near Sun Life Stadium's southeast gate when the police warned her several times to stop, the Sun Sentinel reported. When Grimes did not heed the warning, the police tried to subdue her and throw her to the ground where she violently flailed her arms and legs. She was then handcuffed and as she raised to her feet, she reportedly jerked backwards and head-butted the police officer behind her.
In a video publicly shared on Twitter, Grimes was shown being arrested in the parking lot while shouting obscenities. She is said to have hurt her right arm and knee in the confrontation. The Miami Herald reported that Brent Grimes was made aware of the commotion and left the locker room without sharing any comment.
The Dolphins cornerback's wife has become a sort of Internet celebrity due to her unrestrained posts on Twitter. In the previous season, she called former lineman Jonathan Martin a "female" playing in the NFL.
On a lighter note, it seems that the Miami Dolphins can count on one of world's wealthiest as their fan. During the team's abovementioned match against the Bills, Warren Buffett was seen in the Sun Life Stadium wearing defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh's jersey.
The 85-year-old, who is the third richest person in the world at present, appeared along the sidelines in a number 93 jersey complete with pads on both shoulders. In an interview with ESPN, Buffett humorously said, "I actually won the national look-alike contest with the Dolphins. He's 6-4, 320 [pounds]. But I'm bigger than I look."
The tycoon mentioned that he has known Suh for many years and that they became friends "about four or five years ago." The NFL player was a product of the University of Nebraska, which is the state where Buffett hails from.
The businessman may be worth dozens of billions of dollars but it looks like he is not one to turn down the opportunity of receiving cash of any amount. NFL reporter Jeff Darlington, who also shared the photo of Buffett above, mentioned on Twitter, "I just interviewed Warren Buffett. Jokingly handed him a dollar for his time at the end of it. SOB put it in his pocket and walked away!"
