As of Thursday morning, reports from WFAA state that Von Miller, the NFL player, is facing an active arrest warrant issued by the Dallas Police Department concerning an alleged incident involving his longtime girlfriend, which is purported to have occurred on Wednesday. The warrant specifies an accusation of assaulting a pregnant person, classified as a third-degree felony.
The reported incident apparently took place at their residence in Dallas, resulting in a significant disturbance that prompted law enforcement to respond around 11 a.m. CT. Allegedly, during an argument, Miller is said to have assaulted his girlfriend, who subsequently received treatment for minor injuries. Upon police arrival, Miller had already left the scene.
While the warrant for Miller’s arrest is in effect, as of 9 a.m. CT on Thursday, he had not been apprehended. His attorney has been informed about the warrant.
Neither the Dallas Police Department nor Miller’s legal representative has provided additional comments on the matter as of the latest update. Both the NFL and the Bills organization have acknowledged the situation, with the Bills stating that they are in the process of gathering more information and withholding further comment at this stage, while the NFL has stated they are aware of the issue and in contact with the club but have no further comment at the moment.
This reported incident follows a past police investigation involving Miller, where an inquiry in 2021 by the Parker, Colorado Police Department into domestic violence allegations from his ex-fiancée resulted in no charges filed against him.
Von Miller, known for his football prowess, has been a part of the Buffalo Bills after signing a six-year, $120 million contract extending through the 2027 season. His tenure with the team has seen him play 19 games over two years, during which he tallied eight sacks in 2022 before sustaining a late-season torn ACL. His contract was among the highest in the NFL for defenders, with an average annual value of $20 million, putting him on par with other top earners like Chiefs’ Chris Jones and Rams’ Jalen Ramsey. The deal also included a substantial $51.5 million in guaranteed money, $45 million of which was received at the time of signing.
