Rapper Killer Mike was arrested at the Grammy Award ceremony on Sunday. 

Fox News reports that the arrest came after the singer, whose real name is Micahel Render, won three Grammy Awards.

The arrest was caught on camera by the Hollywood Reporter. Take a look:

What did he do?

It is alleged that Render got into a physical altercation with a security officer at Crypto.com Arena and that this is what led to the arrest. TMZ provides further details.

"We're told KM is accused of knocking down a security officer after they did not get out of his way quick enough . . .," the outlet reports.

It continues:

We got a hold of video that seems to show Mike being chased down outside in the windy rain, where security personnel can be seen attempting to stop him ... with Mike looking determined to get by them. You can't see any "knock-down" as has been described to us by law enforcement -- but it does look like he faces off with security guards in tense fashion. Eventually, Mike was cuffed and led away in the rain as well. It's still unclear what exactly led up to this -- remember, just moments earlier, he was inside soaking in the Grammy win.

At the time of this writing, some of the big questions - including what led up to this incident - remain unanswered.

Render, though, has been booked by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), and he has been charged with misdemeanor battery.

"Full of empathy and sympathy . . ."

Reports indicate that law enforcement released Render on Sunday evening.

Neither Render nor a representative, at the time of this writing, has released a statement on the matter.

The arrest came after Render won three Grammy Awards.

One award was for best rap performance for his song Scientists & Engineers. Another award was for best rap song, which again was Scientists & Engineers. And, his final award was for best rap album for Michael. 

Backstage, Render is reported to have said:

The only thing that limits your age is not being truthful about your age or what you’re doing. 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.
