Chiefs Defensive Lineman Arrested in Florida on Domestic Battery Charges

Details of Roy Miller's domestic battery arrest emerged Sunday.

Trouble struck the Chiefs even though they're on a bye week. He was held in jail without bond until he appeared in court Saturday afternoon.

She sustained a small abrasion on her face and a scratch on the back of her neck.

She told cops that her husband also threw her phone into the toilet and refused to let her retrieve it. After a brief struggle, however, she was able to get to her phone and call the police.

Roy Miller, 30, was arrested early Saturday in Florida on a domestic battery charge.

The report includes corroborating testimony from witnesses, including one who said she heard the couple arguing and brought the kids to the other end of the house.

Police found Roy Miller sleeping inside the bedroom and he agreed to speak to police after being awakened.

The judge ordered that Miller be released that day and said that he is allowed to make contact with his wife, but that any violence toward her will break his release. In late September, after President Trump criticized protesting National Football League players at a campaign speech in Alabama, Miller placed his hand on the shoulder of well-known anthem protester Marcus Peters. He began his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before a four-year stint with Jacksonville Jaguars. The Chiefs signed him on August 2.

"This morning we were informed about an incident involving one of our players, Roy Miller", the statement read. They declined any further comment. He torn his right Achilles tendon last October, ending his season on injured reserve.
