Rap Star Killer Mike Arrested at Grammys After Winning Three Major Awards - EVOL

Killer Mike was detained at the 66th Grammy Awards at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon, only two hours after winning three of the four rap categories in the pre-show telecast.

According to a police source, shortly after 4 p.m., the rapper, real name Michael Render, was handcuffed and held following an alleged “physical altercation” inside the arena involving a third party.

Render was questioned, according to the source, and any prospective arrest will be determined by whether the third person wishes to bring charges. An investigation is ongoing.

Chris Gardner of The Hollywood Reporter obtained video of Render getting handcuffed and brought away. According to Gardner, an official claimed the arrest was for an unnamed misdemeanor unrelated to anything that happened at the Grammys on Sunday.
