Grammy winning rapper Killer Mike arrested at the Grammys for misdemeanor, Los Angeles police say

Rapper Killer Mike found himself in trouble at the Grammy Awards on Sunday afternoon, as he was arrested for misdemeanor battery, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The LAPD Central Division processed Michael Render, also known as the singer, after he was involved in a physical altercation at Crypto.com Arena. According to the police, the 48-year-old is expected to be released soon.

At the Grammys’ Premiere Ceremony on Sunday, Render, who had just won three awards, was captured in a video posted by The Hollywood Reporter being escorted in handcuffs by the police.

According to TMZ, Render is facing accusations of physically engaging with a security officer. It is alleged that he knocked the guard down because the guard did not move fast enough to get out of his way.

Miley Cyrus, Doja Cat, and Heidi Klum steal the spotlight with their daring fashion choices on the Grammys red carpet.

Killer Mike graciously receives the coveted award for the best rap album, “Michael,” at the 66th annual Grammy Awards held in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 4, 2024. The moment was captured in a photograph by Chris Pizzello for the Associated Press.

“At 20 years old, I thought it was cool to be a drug dealer,” the rapper said backstage. “At 40, I started to live with the regrets and the things I’ve done. At 45, I started to rap about it. At 48, I stand here as a man full of empathy and sympathy for the things I’ve done.”

Killer Mike emerged victorious at the Grammy Awards, taking home accolades for best rap performance, rap song, and rap album. This marked a significant achievement for the talented artist, as his last Grammy win was way back in 2003 for “The Whole World,” which won in the category of best rap performance by a duo or group.
