Broncos' Von Miller subject of police investigation
Parker, Colorado police are currently investigating whether Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has committed a crime.
A police department spokesperson Josh Hans emailed the Denver Post, "The case is currently under investigation and no information can be released at this time."
ESPN reported that a decision about possible fees is unlikely to be made in less than a few weeks.
The Douglas County District Attorney's Office confirmed to the Post that no case has been received for review.
The Broncos issued a statement that read, "We are aware of an investigation into Von Miller and are in the process of gathering more information."
The investigation focuses on text messages that Miller sent to his former girlfriend Megan Denise, according to the Washington Post, that she shared on social media.
Denise stated online that she and Miller are expecting a child. An Instagram post from Denise earlier this month included an ultrasound photo, as well as texts she maintained were from Miller. Among the texts were:
- "I honestly pray for a miscarriage"
- "I hate you! ... you will get yours! Believe that"
- "And get an abortion!"
Denver7 TV also reported that Miller is under investigation on allegations of domestic abuse.
Denise wrote in another Instagram story on Friday: "At no point in our relationship has there been any form of physical abuse or violence from Von. It is wrong for someone to say or speculate otherwise."
Miller, 31, is a three-time All-Pro selected for eight Pro Bowls. He missed the entire 2020 season with an ankle injury that resulted in surgery.
