Buffalo Bills edge rusher Von Miller surrendered himself to Glenn Heights Police on Thursday in Texas after an arrest warrant had been issued for him for an alleged assault against his pregnant girlfriend.
Miller surrendered himself to Glenn Heights Police Chief Nick Bristow at 3 pm on Thursday. He posted $5,000 bail for his release.
Around 11 am on Wednesday, the Dallas Police Department responded at 3100 N. Harwood to a highrise apartment complex to a call for a “major disruption.”
Miller was not present when the officers arrived. A preliminary investigation revealed that Miller’s girlfriend and he had a heated argument, which escalated to the point where Miller allegedly assaulted her.
The victim reported to police that the argument was about her travel plans for her birthday. Miller told the victim to leave the apartment. When she grabbed her cell phone and laptop, Miller began to assault her.
According to a police report, the woman shouted “Stop! I’m Pregnant!” She told police that Miller had applied pressure on her neck for 3 to 5 seconds, then let go. Then, he allegedly stomped her laptop and pulled her hair before grabbing her neck with both his hands.
The victim was not hospitalized but had “minor” injuries.
Miller was arrested on an assault charge against a pregnant woman. WFAA reported the incident first and identified the victim as Miller’s girlfriend.
The Bills released a press release about the incident on Thursday. They said that the team had been made aware of the report.
The statement stated that “we are gathering additional information and at this time will not have any further comments.”
Miller has been a Bills player since 2022 when he signed a six-year deal worth $120 million. Miller’s 2022 season ended after only 11 games because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Miller has only played in eight games and has made two tackles. He has not sacked anyone.
Bills will have a week 13 bye before they face the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 10.
