Miko Grimes, Wife of Miami Dolphins' Brent Grimes, Has Criminal Charges Reduced

The felony charges filed against the wife of Miami Dolphins player Brent Grimes following her arrest at Sun Life Stadium last month were reduced to misdemeanors Friday.

Miko Grimes is now facing misdemeanor charges of resisting an officer without violence and disorderly conduct.

Grimes, 40, was arrested on Sept. 28 in the stadium parking lot shortly before the team's loss to the Buffalo Bills. According to a police report, Grimes was walking into vehicular traffic and was arrested after she disobeyed an officer's command to stop. She remained combative even after being handcuffed, police said.

She was booked into jail and later released.

Brent Grimes is a Pro Bowl cornerback, and his wife is well-known in South Florida thanks to her Twitter site. She offers frequent opinions about the Dolphins, their fans and the NFL and has nearly 11,000 followers.
