MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – A Miami Dolphins player's wife was arrested Sunday as fans were walking out of Sun Life Stadium after Miami's 41-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Miami-Dade police arrested Miko Grimes, 40, after the game. She is the wife of Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes.

News4Jax sister station Local 10 News was at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center early Monday morning as she bonded out of jail.

 A video posted on Twitter showed Miko Grimes was shouting: "Get off my f---ing leg! Are you f---ing serious right now?" A man is heard saying, "She tried to walk through."

According to an arrest report, Miko Grimes broke through a barricade of police bicycles and entered a restricted area after disobeying several orders from officers to stop.

Police said Miko Grimes became belligerent, screaming, "F--- you, cops. You can't tell me what to do."

She then started at an officer in an aggressive manner, the report said. An officer then grabbed her arm to detain her, but she pulled away from the officer and a struggle ensued, the report said.

Police said Miko Grimes continued to resist and, with the assistance of other officers, she was taken into custody.

As Miko Grimes continued being combative, an officer pulled out a Taser gun and threatened to use it on her if she did not calm down, at which point she did, police said.

But after being handcuffed, Miko Grimes head-butted a female officer, the report said. When police were able to get her into the back of a police car, she continued kicking and swinging her elbows, the report said.

Miko Grimes was treated for injuries to her right arm, knee and forearm at the Miami-Dade Police Department.

She faces charges of battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest with violence.

Meanwhile, Brent Grimes did not talk to reporters after the game.

Hours earlier on her Instagram, Mike Grimes posted a picture of "Grimey's Corner" tent at the parking lot. A sign read, "Best Corner in the NFL."
