Report: Von Miller arrested for failure to appear in court


Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was arrested Sunday at the Centennial Gun Club on a failure to appear warrant, reports

Miller, 24, posted $1,000 bond in Arapahoe County Court Sunday.

Statement from the Broncos:

“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.”

From ABC-7 News in Denver:

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 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 Jan. 2.

Miller is facing a four-game suspension for allegedly violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.  His representatives are scheduled to meet with league officials Thursday to formally appeal the suspension.

Miller was placed in the NFL’s substance-abuse program after he tested positive for marijuana in 2011, his rookie season. He also tested positive for an undisclosed amphetamine in 2011.
