Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller pled guilty to speeding and driving under restraint after arriving at Arapahoe County (Colo.) Court two hours late on Monday, according to the Denver Post. Miller was scheduled to appear at 10:30 a.m. to face two cases involving traffic violations, but only Miller's attorney, Abraham Hutt, arrived at court. Court magistrate Christina Apostoli was not happy that Miller was late. "The court finds it rather ridiculous he doesn't appear this morning and he's mere blocks away," she said before Miller arrived. "That's what's made a spectacle of these issues." Hutt asked Apostoli on Friday to waive Miller's appearance, but she denied the request. Hutt told the court it was his fault that Miller was not there on time. He finally arrived about 12:15 p.m. After pleading guilty, Apostoli ordered Miller to complete 24 hours of community service and a level-one driving class within 30 days. A final hearing was scheduled for Jan. 23. Miller is not required to attend. Miller was arrested in August when, while attempting to buy a firearm, a background check indicated that he had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on charges from the previous October. Those charges were for careless driving and operating a vehicle without a license or proof of insurance.
