Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is the subject of a criminal investigation by police in Parker, Colorado, according to multiple reports.
A spokesman for the Parker Police Department told the Denver Post that “the case is currently under investigation, and no information can be released at this time.”
The spokesman added if it is determined that a crime was committed, the case will be turned over to the district attorney.
The eight-time Pro Bowler missed the entire 2020 season with an ankle injury.
“We are aware of an investigation involving Von Miller and are in the process of gathering more information,” the Broncos said in a statement.
The organization has until March 9 to decide whether to exercise a team option on the 31-year-old Miller, whose cap number for 2021 is $22.125 million with a dead-cap charge of $4.125 million if he’s released.
Miller, the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011, has recorded 106 career sacks, tied for 25th on the all-time list. He also was suspended for six games in 2013 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
