Broncos linebacker Von Miller continues to have a problem with showing up in court on time.
According to Jordan Steffen of the Denver Post, Miller was nearly two hours lateregarding pending traffic offenses. Eventually, Miller arrived at the Arapahoe County Court and pleaded guilty.
Miller’s lawyer, Abraham Hutt, accepted blame for the snafu. Hutt explained that he was under the impression that prosecutors had agreed to allow Miller to skip the hearing.
Magistrate Christina Apostoli wasn’t impressed.
“The court finds it rather ridiculous he doesn’t appear this morning and he’s mere blocks away. That’s what’s made a spectacle of these issues,” Apostoli said.
For pleading guilty to the pending traffic charges, Miller was ordered to perform 24 hours of community service and to complete a driving class within 90 days.
Though Miller escaped this specific predicament without any problems, it’s an important time for him to be dotting i’s and crossing t’s. With Miller subject to up to 10 unannounced drug tests per month, he needs to be ready at a moment’s notice to show up on time and to produce clean urine, preferably from his own body.
