Jail records obtained by the AP show that Miller was jailed shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday, but there aren’t any details immediately available about the alleged battery or who was involved.
It’s worth mentioning that the records do show that it involved a minor injury and Miller has an initial appearance before a judge later Saturday.
Miller, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2009. He spent four years in Tampa Bay before signing a five-year, $18.63 million contract that included $1.975 million guaranteed on with the Jaguars in 2013.
Miller was set to make a base salary of $3,637,500 for the 2017 season when the Jaguars released him this past March. The Chiefs would later sign him to a contract during the preseason.
In 2017, Miller has appeared in seven games and recorded six tackles, no sacks and a pass defense for the Chiefs.
