Chiefs defensive tackle Roy Miller has been arrested on a charge of domestic battery.

Miller was jailed early this morning in Jacksonville and is scheduled to appear before a judge today, the Associated Press reports. Miller played the last four years in Jacksonville before signing with Kansas City in August. The Chiefs are on their bye this week.

Law enforcement has not provided any details about the circumstances surrounding the alleged battery. The Chiefs released a statement acknowledging they are aware of the arrest.

The 30-year-old Miller was a third-round pick of the Buccaneers in 2009. This year he has played in seven games for the Chiefs, with no starts.

  1. If he played for Jones, this would really get dragged out……… perhaps even with lawyers involved.

  2. Poor Jerry. I feel awful for the guy that signed Greg Hardy and called him a leader. Even with Zeke, police think he did most of, but not all of what his accuser says. They are both idiots, but let’s stop with this Zeke is the victim crap.

  3. Note to Roger Goodell – Miller was ARRESTED. Elliott was not arrested. This is what you call an automatic 6 game suspension. Remember, Elliott did not get charged, big difference.

  4. If there is film of Miller committing the assault he probably will
    get a 2 game suspension. If it comes down to his word and the
    victim’s word he will get 6 games.

  5. Oh boy! Jerruh Jones is trying to make a trade for him as I type this!! He just loves doze bad guys on dem Cowboys!!

  6. Hey self righteous nfl players…let’s take a knee for that…maybe kaepernick can say something about da in the nfl…what a bunch of morons….and the nfl wonders why viewership is down…don’t let the inmates run the asylum…if that was the way it was said originally,those geniuses would not have been so outraged in houston….right age old expression with wrong word in it….getting sick of these nfl players….fix yourselves then the country and don’t kneel on our flag anymore.

    That is wrong. Police do not “CHARGE” anyone with crimes. Arrest, by itself, does not constitute anything. Before you appear before a judge, you will either get your own lawyer or have one appointed, and then you will go in-front of a judge or a magistrate, where the prosecuting attorney will read your ALLEGED crimes and you will have the opportunity to plead at that time and ask for bail or similar.

    Even at that time, you may not have been ‘charged with a crime’. There could be ongoing investigations leading to Grand Juries or other steps.. so at least for a little while, you jumped on the “get Goodell” train early.

  8. If domestic violence is the end road for you, your character is severely flawed. Look in a mirror and admit to yourself that you suck at life. Stop with the excuses.

    Dual, NFL does have proof. They also have an eyewitness to the injuries. The police and the District Attorney basically declined to make Zeke their problem and dump it on the NFL. They saved their organizations a lot of time and money. Zeke is not new to the domestic violence rodeo, what is new to him is he is being held accountable.

    it is just so simple but goodell works backwards instead,
    which is how it is so easy to catch him lying as well

    ==========================================================

    “Police think he did most of”? Where did you get that fake news? The only female to interview her said she was lying. Of course Goodell didn’t even talk to her.

    Lisa Friel won’t even investigate this. The Chiefs won’t be playing the Giants for several more years.

    suncawy,there’s video proof of what Elliott did at that parade.
    —————————

    Then it is too bad that Elliott wasn’t suspended for that. But Goodell doesn’t care about that kind of behavior. He’s only concerned with duping people into believing that he is tough on domestic violence, even though everyone knows he isn’t.

  13. Some idiot actually wrote out a sentence that read “police believed most of what Zeke did but not all the accuser claimed he did”

    First off, this is not a Zeke article. Second, what the hell does that mean most of? TheRe is either DV committed or not, it isn’t an 80/20 split or any other fraction. And a hint. The police report exposes the lies the accuser made, and at no point infer that Zeke committed DV. There were no less than 4 offixers sworn affidavits, attesting that they witnessed or were aware of the fight that the accuser had with another female the night she called police.but don’t let the facts get in your way junior.

    Sorry but your information certainly isn’t true across the country. In some states the police act as initial prosecutor and if you’ve been arrested YOU WILL appear in court, in some states you can be arrested and released without bail because the local prosecutor declined to file formal charges after the arrest (California). Or you could be initially charged in local court while an indictment is sought in a higher court (New England states) as the crime’s maximum punishment cannot be imposed in the smaller court.

    They play them next weekend.

  16. And yet we have another anti-America protester showing who they really are. Be careful who you support kids.

  17. These players complain about Thursday night football and quick turnaround. But you give them a bye week and they go home and beat on a woman.

    Instead of an off week maybe they should keep the inmates in the prison…
