Rapper Killer Mike Arrested on Misdemeanor Charge Shortly After Winning Three Grammy Awards

Michael Render, also known as rapper Killer Mike, was arrested on a misdemeanour charge Sunday night shortly after winning three Grammys.

Render was detained and handcuffed by police just after 4 p.m. PT. Police took him into custody over an alleged physical altercation at the 700 block of Chick Hearn Court, one of the streets just outside the Crypto.com arena, which is where the Grammys were held, ABC News reports.

Render was placed under arrest and taken to Central Division.

He was booked on misdemeanour battery.

Authorities said Sunday night that Render was in the process of being released.

A rep for the artist didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from ABC News.

The 48-year-old rapper won three Grammy awards during the pre-televised portion: Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for his song “Scientists & Engineers” and Best Rap Album for Michael.
