Broncos LB Von Miller arrested on failure to appear warrant
Broncos All-Pro linebacker Von Miller was arrested Sunday at a Denver area gun club on a failure to appear warrant, according to KMGH-TV.
Court records reportedly show Miller was arrested for not appearing at his court hearing on charges from last October when he was cited for careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance. Court records also show Miller was scheduled for arraignment on Dec. 31, the day after the Broncos' final regular season game in Denver. The arrest warrant was issued on Jan. 2.
The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office told 7NEWS that Miller went into the gun club Sunday and was found to have an outstanding warrant for his arrest. Deputies were called and Miller was taken into custody.
There is no word why he was not arrested sooner.
The Broncos issued a statement regarding their 24-year-old star:
“We have been aware of the matter involving Von Miller’s failure to appear in court for traffic violations. It was reported to the league earlier this week and is being handled through the legal system.”
Miller's status with the Broncos was already in question after the NFL issued a four-game suspension for an alleged drug violation in July. Miller is scheduled to appeal the suspension Thursday. The Broncos' second overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft was third in the NFL last season with 18.5 sacks.
