Broncos' Miller arrested after missing court date

The SportsXchange

Off-the-field troubles continued this week for Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.

Miller, who faces an appeal hearing Thursday with the NFL on a four-game suspension, was arrested Sunday on a failure to appear in court warrant, KMGH-TV in Denver reported Wednesday.

Miller was at a gun club in Araphoe County at the time of the arrest. He was booked and released Sunday, which was an off day for the team.

The 24-year-old Miller had failed to show up for a scheduled court date in January after he was charged in October with careless driving, driving without a license and having no proof of insurance.

"We have been aware of the matter involving Von Miller's failure to appear in court for traffic violations," the Broncos said in a statement. "It was reported to the league earlier this week and is being handled through the legal system."

Miller also is appealing an NFL suspension for an alleged violation of the league's substance abuse policy. NFL Players' Association assisstant executive director George Atallah has said the suspension is not for a violation of the league's PED policy.

After Miller's representatives meet with NFL officials on Thursday, a league ruling on the appeal is expected before the Broncos' Sept. 5 opener against the Baltimore Ravens.
