Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has had a rough offseason. Miller is facing a 4 game suspension for allegedly violating the league’s substance abuse policy but he did not fail a drug test. The Denver Broncos have had a rough offseason as well with two executives getting arrested for DUI’s roughly a month apart. Compared to those situations this seems relatively minor.
From Denver’s 7 News:
Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller was arrested Sunday at the Centennial Gun Club on a failure to appear warrant.
Court records show Miller, 24, was arrested for not appearing at his court hearing on a charge from last October when he was cited for careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance.
The arrest warrant was issued in January. There’s no word why he was not arrested sooner.
Miller was booked and released on Sunday. The Denver Broncos players had Sunday off from training camp.
New York Jets running back Joe McKnight was arrested for something similar a couple weeks ago. It is hard to believe professional athletes can’t afford to pay a minor traffic ticket, or 3 in Miller’s case, but I guess professional athletes just like normal Americans don’t like paying tickets.
Fortunately he didn’t miss practice because of this, there could have been a fine if that were the case.
“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.”
