Share

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

The Chiefs are on a bye this week.

He had his first appearance in court in the afternoon. The responding officer found a cut on Nicole Miller's face, a scratch on the back of her neck and a braid torn out from the back of her head.

She said Roy threw her phone in the toilet and physically restrained her from retrieving it. After a brief struggle, however, she was able to get to her phone and call the police.

The victim in the case is also no longer pressing charges, per WJAX.

A witness who was staying with the Millers said that she heard them arguing, so she ushered all the children to the other side of the house. The judge ordered Miller's release, but said if there is any violence toward his wife, then his release will be rescinded. Prosecutors requested more time to investigate the matter.

The Chiefs, who are off this week, said in statement to the Associated Press that they were aware of the incident and gathering facts. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted him and he played for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2013 to 2016.

Miller signed with the Chiefs as a free agent in August. 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. "We will have no further comment at this time".

He has appeared in seven games this season and made two tackles, including one in the Chiefs' 28-17 loss to the Cowboys in Dallas last week.
