Broncos linebacker Von Miller arrested


Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office

Denver Broncos linebacker was arrested on Sunday on a arrant for failing to appear in court on a traffic citation. Miller is facing a four game suspension from the NFL for which an appeal will be heard Thursday.

Miller posted $1,000 bond and was released from jail according to USA Today Sports.

The Broncos released a statement on Wednesday saying they were aware of Miller’s arrest

The Broncos issued a statement Wednesday in which they said they were aware of Miller’s incident.

“It was reported to the league earlier this week, and is being handled through the legal system,” the team said.

The arrest warrant was initially filed on Jan. 2 after Miller did not appear in an Arapahoe County Court on Dec. 31, a day after the Broncos’ final regular season game of last season. He was initially cited in October for careless driving and no proof on insurance.

Both Miller and the Broncos have seemed positive he will win Thursday’s appeal which was not for a positive drug test.

Miller, 24, was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 draft, and has 30 sacks in his first two seasons.
