Arrest Warrant Issued for Von Miller
Miller has been charged with assaulting a pregnant person, per WFAA, a third-degree felony. While Miller’s attorney has been contacted about the warrant, he has not been arrested as of Thursday morning.
Per a statement from Dallas police, a preliminary investigation determined that Miller engaged in a verbal argument with the victim before assaulting her. She was treated for minor injuries but was not taken to the hospital.
Miller was not present when the police arrived at the scene.
Until more details emerge, it remains unclear how this warrant or potential arrest could affect Miller’s status for the rest of the NFL season. He could be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, essentially removing him from Buffalo’s roster while the case is ongoing.
The Bills issued a statement regarding Miller’s warrant on Thursday morning.
“This morning, we were made aware of an incident involving Von Miller. We are in the process of gathering more information and will have no further comment at this point.”
The NFL also provided a statement on Miller.
“We are aware of the matter and have been in contact with the club. We have no further comment at this time.”
Miller is a Dallas native who attended Texas A&M University. Selected second overall by the Denver Broncos in the 2011 NFL Draft, Miller spent more than a decade before being traded to the Los Angeles Rams in 2021.
After winning his second career Super Bowl in Los Angeles, Miller signed with the Bills ahead of the 2022 campaign. Buffalo is on a bye in Week 13 but is scheduled to play the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 10.
Miller was the subject of a Parker, Co. police investigation in 2021 but was not charged with a crime. Authorities declined to comment on the details of a probe “in which there was never a citation, arrest or filing.”
