Killer Mike, a rapper from the United States, was taken into custody for an altercation shortly after he won three Grammy awards, according to the Los Angeles Police Department on Sunday.
The Associated Press was informed by Mike Lopez, a representative for the Los Angeles Police Department, that the detention was in connection with an altercation that took place inside the Crypto.com Arena, which was the location of the event.
Mr. Lopez noted that Killer Mike, who is 48 years old, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor.
After some time, he was released, and he is due to make an appearance in court later on this month.

It appears that the video from the scene showed the person known as Killer Mike, whose true name is Michael Render, being led away from the site by law enforcement personnel while wearing handcuffs.
A short time after the rapper and political activist had won three Grammy awards, which was his first in twenty years, this event took place.
In addition to winning honors for best rap song and best rap performance, his song Scientists & Engineers, which featured André 3000, Future, and Eryn Allen Kane, was also chosen as the winner.
With the release of his album Michael, he was awarded a third time for best rap album.
When the 48-year-old man was presented with his accolades, he made the following statement: “This is for all the people who think you’re too old to rap… we keep hip-hop alive.” Do not ever, ever quit doing what you are doing.
Someone yelled “free Mike” as the rapper was being led away from the arena, according to witnesses who were present at the event.
The challenges that black Americans face, including as racism and police brutality, have been brought to the attention of Killer Mike throughout his career.
With her fourth Grammy Award for best album, Taylor Swift created history at the Grammy Awards. She was the most dominant performer at the event.
