Broncos' Von Miller Again Facing Legal Trouble

DENVER (CBS4) - Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller, already suspended for the first six games of the season, now faces more legal problems according to a CBS4 investigation.

CBS4 has learned the star linebacker was stopped again by law enforcement last week and cited for driving while his license was suspended and speeding, adding to a multitude of legal woes.

Arapahoe County officials confirm that late last week an Arapahoe County deputy stopped Miller for speeding in the vicinity of his home in Arapahoe County.

A routine computer check showed that Miller's license had already been suspended.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson told CBS4 that Miller was not jailed but was cited for the license violation and speeding. He said Miller was with his father, who was then allowed to drive the car.

The Pro Bowl linebacker was found to be in violation of the NFL's drug policy leading to the six game suspension. A court database does not show last week's incident but shows that in 2012 Miller was cited for careless driving and driving without a license. He is due in court on that case in October.

Records also show that in 2011, Miller was cited in Arapahoe County for speeding 10 to 19 miles over the limit. He pleaded guilty to that charge on March 1, 2012.

Since last week's incident does not yet show up on the court database, it's unclear when Miller is due in court on those charges.
