Buffalo Bills linebacker Von Miller turned himself in Thursday after an arrest warrant was issued for him, Dallas police said.
According to the arrest warrant affidavit from the Dallas Police Department, Miller has been accused of assaulting his pregnant girlfriend.
Miller, 34, turned himself in to the Glenn Heights Police Department Thursday afternoon, hours after the warrant was issued, Dallas police told CNN.
Miller was taken to the DeSoto Police Department jail where he immediately posted $5,000 bond and was released, Glenn Heights Police Chief Nick Bristow told CNN affiliate WFAA.
On Wednesday around 11 a.m., Dallas police responded to what they said was “a major disturbance call,” the police department said. A preliminary investigation determined Miller and the woman had a verbal argument and that Miller allegedly assaulted her, police added.
The alleged victim told police Miller ordered her to leave the apartment they share in Dallas after a verbal argument. As she was gathering personal items to leave, the affidavit says, Miller “walked up to her and began to shove and push her, all while telling her to leave the unit.”
Police say the woman informed them she is six weeks pregnant.
In the report, the woman alleges that at one point, Miller pulled out a chunk of her hair, which caused her to fall to the ground.
She also told officers Miller twice “placed pressure” with his hand around her neck, although she was still able to breathe. Miller allegedly left the apartment after the woman said she was going to call the police. The police report says an officer “observed minor abrasions on the Complainant’s left hand along with bruising to her neck, injuries consistent with applied pressure to the neck.” Bruises were also later found on her abdomen and left arm.
CNN was not able to find contact information for Miller’s girlfriend Friday. CNN affiliate WFAA reports it reached her by text Thursday, and she reportedly said, “Things were blown way out of context. This is actually outrageous!”
She called the incident “a huge misunderstanding” and a “verbal disagreement.”
According to the arrest warrant affidavit, the “Suspect and Complainant have been in a romantic relationship for 7 years and share children together.”
Miller left the scene before officers arrived and that the woman was treated for minor injuries and not hospitalized, according to police.
“This morning, we were made aware of an incident involving Von Miller,” the Bills said in a statement. “We are in the process of gathering more information and will have no further comment at this point.”
CNN has sought comment from Miller.
When reached by CNN, a spokesperson for the NFL said the league is aware of the matter and has been in contact with the Bills but declined to comment beyond that.
Miller is originally from DeSoto, Texas. He has won two Super Bowls – one with the Denver Broncos and the other with the Los Angeles Rams – and was named Super Bowl 50 MVP.
Miller hosts Bleacher Report’s “The Voncast.” Bleacher Report and CNN share the same parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD). WBD had no comment when asked about the arrest warrant.
