Rapper Killer Mike found himself in a legal predicament shortly after clinching three awards at the Grammys. The incident, which occurred just hours after his triumphant win, was captured on camera by TMZ.
Footage obtained by TMZ reveals both the alleged altercation and subsequent arrest, with Mike being escorted out of the awards ceremony in handcuffs on Sunday (February 4). It’s worth noting that he was later released from custody.
Reports suggest that the rapper was charged with battery following a citizen’s arrest stemming from an alleged physical confrontation with a security guard. TMZ alleges that Mike knocked down the security guard after he failed to clear a path for him.
While the video footage does not conclusively show Mike knocking anyone down, it does capture the rapper engaged in a tense standoff with several security personnel.
In the video depicting Mike being led away by the police, a bystander can be heard shouting, “free Mike.” The incident has stirred quite a buzz within the entertainment industry and among fans.
