An arrest warrant has been issued for Buffalo Bills player Von Miller for an alleged assault on a pregnant woman.
On Wednesday, the Dallas Police responded to a major disturbance call, with the preliminary investigation showing that Von Miller and the woman, who is expecting, got into a verbal argument that turned physical. During the incident, Miller allegedly assaulted the woman.
The NFL player then left the scene before police arrived.
NFL Player Von Miller Wanted For Alleged Assault
According to NFL reporter Adam Schefter, an arrest warrant was issued in Dallas for the Buffalo Bills player for allegedly assaulting a pregnant woman. The Dallas Police Department confirmed the warrant with him.
Although the woman was not transported to a hospital, she was treated for minor injuries. Multiple police sources told WFAA that the alleged victim is Miller’s longtime girlfriend. Authorities also confirmed the warrant to News 4 Buffalo, saying the alleged incident was a “major disturbance” that occurred after a verbal argument.
The investigation remains ongoing and as of 10 a.m. Thursday, Miller has not been arrested. It is unclear where Von Miller is at the time of publication.
A charge of assaulting a pregnant person is a third-degree felony in Texas.
The Buffalo Bills released a statement on the incident Thursday morning, saying “This morning, we were made aware of an incident involving Von Miller. We are in the process of gathering more information and will have no further comment at this point.”
The NFL issued a statement as well. “We are aware of the matter and have been in contact with the club,” the league said. “We have no further comment at this time.”
Von Miller’s Past Legal Troubles
In 2021, Von Miller was under investigation by the Parker, Colorado police department, but the district attorney’s office for the city declined to move forward with charges against Miller. Details surrounding the investigation were not disclosed by authorities, and Miller remained on the Broncos team for that upcoming season.
Miller is now in the second year of a six-year, $120 million contract that he signed with Buffalo after winning the 2022 Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams.
NFL Star Zay Jones Arrested For Domestic Violence
Zay Jones, a wide receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was arrested for a domestic battery causing bodily harm charge earlier this month.
The NFL star allegedly got into an argument with the mother of his child that turned physical, leaving scratch marks on the woman’s neck, consistent with fingerprints.
According to legal documents, the incident took place at a Jacksonville-area condo/apartment at around 2:20 p.m. on Monday, November 13. According to the arrest report, a woman, who is seemingly the mother of Jones’ child, told police that she and the NFL star got into an argument after she told Zay Jones that she was taking their child from Jacksonville back to Orlando.
Certain details of the incident were redacted from the docs, however, it did state that one office noticed “several small scratches” on the woman’s neck “consistent with marks from a fingernail.” The 28-year-old wide receiver was taken into custody around 6 p.m. that same day. He was booked on a domestic battery causing bodily harm charge.
