DENVER — The Denver Broncos’ star linebacker, Von Miller, has a bench warrant out for his arrest in Orange County in southern California.
Susan Schroeder with the Orange County District Attorney’s Office told FOX31 Denver Wednesday night that Miller failed to appear in court for a traffic ticket. Schroeder did not know exactly when the warrant was issued, but she thinks it was sometime in 2012.
The information came from court paperwork.
The Denver Broncos told FOX31 Denver the team is aware of the warrant and is looking into the situation.
Von Miller’s Attorney Mark Schamel responded to what CBS 11 in Dallas reported late Wednesday, saying “This is a $240 speeding ticket for driving 10 mph over the speed limit. I’m hoping to have this cleared up in the next 24 hours.”
The Broncos play both the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers in California later this season.
The problems for Miller just keep mounting. He’s currently serving a six-game suspension for violating NFL policy.
Then Wednesday morning there was news the linebacker received a traffic ticket in Arapahoe County on Sept. 5 for speeding 13 miles per hour over the speed limit and driving with a suspended license, according to the sheriff’s deputy who pulled him over.
Miller’s father happened to be riding in the vehicle with him at the time. His dad was allowed to drive his son home, so there was no arrest.
All of this is in addition to a ticket Von Miller received in October 2012 for driving without a license. He was also cited for careless driving and for driving without proof of insurance during that same traffic stop.
Miller was then arrested last month for failing to appear in court for a hearing that was related to those October citations.
The 24-year-old linebacker racked up an impressive 30 sacks through his first two NFL seasons with the Broncos.
