Buffalo Bills’ Von Miller Disputes Domestic Violence Allegations Made Against Him

Last month, NFL player, Von Miller turned himself in to the police after being accused of assaulting a pregnant woman in Dallas.  He has recently stated that the allegations are “100 percent false” and they were “blown out of proportion.”

According to The Associated Press, Miller, who plays for the Buffalo Bills spoke to the media and stated that something did happen between him and his girlfriend but not to the level he has been accused of. He claims that it will be a matter of time before things can be cleared about the incident.

“Everything was blown out of proportion. It was a crazy day. Whatever happened, I hate that it happened. I hate my name is attached to anything like that, and it’s just a matter of time until I can clear it up. Me and my girlfriend, we have problems just like any other couple does, but there has never been any of those things that was alleged against me.”

Although he was arrested and charged with third-degree felony assault of a pregnant woman on Nov. 30 in Dallas, prosecutors have not filed any charges against Miller, according to Judge Steven Autry.

Miller was released after posting a $5,000 bond. If prosecutors do decide to go forward with the charge and he is convicted, he would face 2 to 10 years in prison plus a $10,000 fine.

Since there have been no charges filed against Miller, he is allowed to play while the district attorney’s office investigates the incident.

After the arrest, Miller spoke to team officials, including Bills owner Terry Pegula, general manager Brandon Beane, and coach Sean McDermott, and the Dallas DA’s office, who were on the phone when Miller had the conversation.

“These guys know me, they’ve been around me,” Miller said. “Everyone can have a lapse in judgment, but that’s just not been me.”

He also gave assurance that the story that was told is not what took place.

“All of it is incorrect,” he said. “You know, it’s not a funny situation, but all of it is incorrect and all of it is untrue. The only thing that is true is we do have a third son on the way.”

Miller recently played in a 24-22 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers last weekend.
