Buffalo Bills edge rusher Von Miller is currently out on bond following an incident involving his pregnant girlfriend at their home in Dallas. According to the Dallas Police, they responded to a disturbance on November 29, where Miller was accused of assaulting his girlfriend during an argument.
The argument reportedly started over travel plans, and Miller’s girlfriend claimed that he became physically aggressive when she tried to gather her belongings. She detailed instances of shoving, pushing, and him recording the altercation on his phone. She stated that he ignored her pleas, even when she mentioned her pregnancy, and allegedly put his hands around her neck for a brief period.
The girlfriend also shared a video of the incident with the police, where Miller can be heard telling her to leave. Detectives noted minor injuries, including abrasions and bruising on her hand, neck, abdomen, and left bicep, consistent with applied pressure. Although she did not require hospitalization, she was treated for minor injuries at home.
Miller turned himself in to the police, posted a $5,000 bond, and was released. The case is now with the district attorney’s office for potential prosecution. Neither Miller nor his representatives have publicly addressed the allegations.
The NFL‘s response to players accused of domestic violence typically involves placing them on the commissioner’s exempt list, making them ineligible to play during the investigation. The Bills, currently on a bye week, are gathering information before commenting on Miller’s status with the team.
This incident comes after Miller was previously investigated for domestic violence in 2021, although no charges were filed. The couple, who reportedly has two children together, is now under ongoing investigation by the Dallas Police.
