Von Miller comes forward after being accused of assaulting his pregnant girlfriend

December 2, 2023

Von Miller, linebacker for the Buffalo Bills, voluntarily surrendered on Thursday, Dallas police say, after an arrest warrant was issued for him.

The Dallas Police Department's arrest warrant affidavit states that Miller is suspected of assaulting his pregnant fiancée, according to CNN.

CNN was informed by Dallas police that Miller, 34, surrendered to the Glenn Heights Police Department on Thursday afternoon, hours after the warrant was issued.

Miller was taken to the DeSoto Police Department prison, where he posted a $5,000 bond and was released without any additional stay, according to CNN affiliate WFAA and Glenn Heights Police Chief Nick Bristow.

Alleged Attack Details

Around 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Dallas police responded to what they described as "a major disturbance call," according to the police department.

Police added that an initial investigation found Miller and the woman argued verbally and that Miller allegedly eventually assaulted her. The alleged victim told police that following a verbal altercation, Miller ordered her to vacate the apartment they shared in Dallas.

Miller “walked up to her and began to shove and push her, all while telling her to leave the unit," according to the affidavit.

The woman reportedly told police that she is six weeks pregnant. According to the report, the woman asserts that Miller caused her to tumble to the ground at one point by ripping out a piece of her hair.

Additionally, she notified police Miller applied pressure to her neck twice with his hand, but she maintained her ability to breathe. Miller allegedly vacated the residence following the woman's claim that she would call the police.

Shocking Findings

The police report says an officer “observed minor abrasions on the Complainant’s left hand along with bruising to her neck, injuries consistent with applied pressure to the neck.” Bruises were also later found on her abdomen and left arm.

CNN affiliate WFAA reports it reached her by text Thursday, and she reportedly said, “Things were blown way out of context. This is actually outrageous!” She called the incident “a huge misunderstanding” and a “verbal disagreement.”

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, the “Suspect and Complainant have been in a romantic relationship for 7 years and share children together.”

Miller left the scene before officers arrived and the woman was treated for minor injuries and not hospitalized, according to police.

“This morning, we were made aware of an incident involving Von Miller,” the Bills said in a statement. “We are in the process of gathering more information and will have no further comment at this point.”
