Miko Grimes, the outspoken wife of Dolphins corner Brent Grimes, was arrested at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday on charges of battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest with violence.

That's according to Miami-Dade police, the arresting agency.

The arrest was captured on video, and went viral on Twitter as her husband was on the field. He left the locker room quickly and without comment after Sunday’s game.

 

The video, which was captured by a passerby, shows Grimes handcuffed and facedown during her arrest. She was wearing her husband’s jersey and visibly distressed.

Police say that Grimes, 40, tried to enter a restricted area of the parking lot against their orders, and when they tried to stop her, she yelled obscenities and charged toward an officer with her arms flailing.

After the police were able to subdue her, Grimes then allegedly head-butted an officer. She struggled further while police transported her to a secure area, according to the arrest report.

She was released from jail on bond overnight.

A Dolphins spokesman said the team is aware of the reports and referred further questions to Miami-Dade police.

Miko Grimes has a large Twitter following and co-hosts a sports-talk show on 560-WQAM.

Albert still out

Branden Albert didn’t play Sunday.

And he might not again anytime soon.

Albert missed the Dolphins’ 41-14 loss to the Bills Sunday with a hamstring injury. And there’s a real chance the left tackle won’t be ready when the Dolphins face the Jets in London on Sunday.

With Albert sidelined, the Dolphins’ line struggled mightily — particularly in the first half. Through two quarters, the Dolphins were held scoreless, gained just 124 yards of offense and turned the ball over three times.

They also managed just 2.4 yards per carry in the first half, and allowed a sack. The Dolphins improved after the half, finishing with 102 yards on 20 attempts.

Jason Fox started in place of Albert.

No safety net

The Dolphins still haven’t figured out what they want to do at safety — and Sunday provided little clarity.

Michael Thomas started over Walt Aikens, and right away had trouble picking up Charles Clay. The former Dolphins tight end roasted his old team for 58 yards and a touchdown on three catches on the first drive.

That’s not to say Aikens didn’t have his issues either.

Most notably: He ran into the leg of punter Colton Schmidt on fourth-and-short in the second half, extending a Buffalo drive. Later in the series, he had a miscommunication with Jamar Taylor on a deep touchdown pass to Chris Hogan.

Second option

Rishard Matthews might be listed as a backup on the depth chart, but for all intents and purposes, he’s the offense's No. 2 option behind Jarvis Landry. Matthews started Sunday and caught six passes for 113 yards and two touchdowns, from 21 and 46 yards.

DeVante Parker, meanwhile, continues to see his role grow. On Sunday, he caught 3 passes for 46 yards.

This and that

▪ Musician Darius Rucker, a longtime Dolphins fan, caught passes from Dan Marino on the field before the game. He sang the National Anthem Sunday.

▪ Billionaire Warren Buffett, a personal friend of Ndamukong Suh, was on the Dolphins’ sideline before the game wearing a Suh jersey and shoulder pads.
