Rapper Killer Mike Arrested at Grammy Awards

Rapper Killer Mike has been taken away from the Grammys in handcuffs following a ‘physical altercation’ after winning three awards.

The 48-year-old rapper, known for his work as a member of rap duo Run The Jewels, won Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for his solo song ‘Scientists & Engineers,’ and the Best Rap Album for Michael.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department told DailyMail.com that a man was being questioned, but they could not confirm his identity.

‘At 4pm an adult male was taken into custody for a physical altercation that took place inside the arena,’ the spokesman said, explaining that the ‘altercation’ happened moments before the person was arrested. TMZ reported that Killer Mike scuffled with a security guard.

‘Right now, the preliminary investigation is: he is being investigated for battery,’ the spokesman said.

‘He will not be identified until he is arrested and charged, if he is.’

As the rapper, born Michael Santiago Render, was taken away, someone yelled: ‘Free Mike!’

Killer Mike is well known for his political activism. He was a vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders, and endorsed Democrat senators Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock for his home state of Georgia.

Before he was handcuffed, the Atlanta-born star was backstage reminiscing on his path to Grammy stardom.

‘The only thing that limits your age is not being truthful about your age or what you’re doing,’ he told the assembled media.

‘At 20 years old, I thought it was cool to be a drug dealer.

‘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.’

    A typical rapper. They are either shot dead or are arrested. They are just a bunch of criminals that are all Black. It is their nature and upbringing to hate and hate everyone that is white or in power. They are always into drugs, dealing them and using them. They never regret anything. He is saying that to get a lesser charge. Who is to say the revolving door worked in this case too. Take him and minutes later he is free with no charges. What a piece of crap.
