Von Miller is accused of assaulting his pregnant girlfriend and placing his hands on her neck.

Von Miller, an edge rusher for the Buffalo Bills, is out on bail after his pregnant girlfriend reported to the police that he shoved her and placed his hands on her neck during a fight at their Dallas home.

Dallas Police report that on November 29, at around 11 a.m., they received a complaint regarding a significant disturbance in the 3100 block of North Harwood Street. According to police, “The preliminary investigation established the suspect, 34-year-old Vonnie Miller, and his victim got into a discussion and the suspect struck the victim.”

Miller allegedly fled the scene before police could arrive, and a third-degree felony assault on a pregnant person led to the issuance of an arrest warrant. According to our friends at KRLD radio, Miller turned himself in to police on Thursday afternoon in Glenn Heights, Texas, and was released after posting a $5,000 bail.

In an affidavit obtained by NBC 5 on Thursday, the lady stated that she and Miller started fighting at around 10:50 a.m. on Wednesday over their planned vacation date while they were at home. She went to an office and slammed the door when she indicated she didn’t want to go on her birthday. She said this offended Miller, who urged her to leave.

He started to “shove and push her, all while telling her to leave,” the lady told police, as she attempted to retrieve some of her belongings. She said that when she begged him to grab her phone and laptop, he pulled out his phone and started filming the fight while he was still pressing and pushing her in the direction of the door. The woman said that despite her repeated requests to stop and the fact that she was pregnant, he persisted in pushing her, tramped on her feet, and forced her to fall back into a chair. Then, according to her, he placed his hand around her neck and held it there for three to five seconds before releasing it. She said that while it hurt, it had no effect on her breathing.

She said that as she reached for her belongings once more, he took hold of her phone, flung her laptop on the ground, and tramped on it. She claimed that when she reached down to pick it up, he grabbed her by the hair, ripping off a chunk and sent her tumbling to the ground. Before he again shoved her into a couch and wrapped his hands around her neck, she claimed to have been able to start filming on one of her two phones and put it in her pocket. He reportedly fled the couple’s house after she warned him she was contacting the police when she got up.

The woman had slight bruises on her neck and small abrasions on her left hand, according to detectives who responded to the call. These injuries were allegedly caused by pressure. The woman’s left bicep and abdomen both had bruises. The lady also gave detectives access to the video she had taken, in which Miller is purportedly heard urging her to leave.

In addition to sharing a picture of a positive pregnancy test and text messages with Miller in which they talked about the child’s due date and an impending doctor’s appointment, the lady informed police she was six weeks pregnant.

Police verified on Thursday that the woman received minor injuries treatment at home rather than being sent to a hospital.

The matter is being sent to the district attorney’s office for prosecution, per the affidavit. The accusations made by Miller’s longstanding girlfriend have not been publicly addressed by him or by an attorney or agency acting on his behalf.

 

DeSoto police issued the following statement on Thursday night:

“Early on Thursday night, Von Miller posted a $5,000 surety bail and was released from the DeSoto Regional Jail. Miller turned himself in to Glenn Heights Police on Thursday afternoon in response to a warrant issued by the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office for a domestic violence incident. Miller was escorted to the jail for detention and processing.”

Miller won two Super Bowls while playing for the Rams and Broncos. He played collegiate football for Texas A&M and was raised in the Dallas suburb of DeSoto. In the 2011 NFL Draft, he was chosen by the Denver Broncos with the second overall pick. He has been named to eight Pro Bowls and three first-team selections. He became a member of the Bills prior to the 2022 NFL season.

It’s uncertain how Miller will do with the Bills during their bye week. NFL players who are charged with domestic abuse are typically placed on the commissioner’s exempt list and aren’t allowed to play while the case is being looked into.

We were informed of an incident involving Von Miller this morning. The Bills released a statement on Thursday that stated, “We are currently obtaining additional information and will not be providing any additional comments at this time.”
