A video is circulating on social media showing the 48-year-old artist being arrested by police officers and escorted out of the Arena.

“Do you mean that seriously?” Killer Mike can apparently be heard screaming at a police officer.

According to US media, the rapper was arrested after a physical altercation with a security guard. A Los Angeles police spokesman said a person was being questioned in connection with an incident unrelated to the Grammy ceremony and that an investigation was underway.

Earlier, during the afternoon ceremony where most Grammy awards are presented, Killer Mike had a perfect score. He won the three rap categories in which he competed.
