Police in Parker have launched a criminal investigation of Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.
Josh Parker, a Parker police spokesman, said in an email, “The case is currently under investigation and no information can be released at this time.”
If investigators determine that a crime has been committed, a case will be presented to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office for review.
“We don’t have a case,” said district attorney spokesman Vicky Migoya.
Hans did not provide any further details of the investigation.
The Broncos have not released a statement on Miller’s investigation.
Miller, 31, completely missed the Broncos’ 2020 season after sustaining an ankle injury in practice a week ago against Tennessee.
The Broncos’ all-time leader in sacks (106) is due to count Miller at a 2021 salary cap, including a team-high $ 22.125 million, base salary of $ 17.5 million.
If the Broncos cut Miller, they could make $ 13.875 million in cap space.
Since joining the Broncos in 2011, Miller’s only documented legal issue was an August 2011 arrest that failed to appear on the vicious traffic chargers. A month later, he was cited driving with a suspended license, and also pleaded guilty to three traffic offenses of 2012–13. He was ordered to complete 24-hour community service and take a driving class.
In August 2013, he was suspended by the NFL for six games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing drugs.
