Denver Broncos star linebacker and DeSoto native Von Miller is under investigation for alleged domestic violence.
A suburban Denver police department confirmed the news Friday.
Miller has not been charged with a crime at this time. The Broncos said they are gathering information as well.
Miller is a legend in the halls of DeSoto High School.
The 2007 graduate went on to play at Texas A&M and then the Denver Broncos. He won Super Bowl 50 and earned the game’s MVP award. But he now finds himself under criminal investigation.
Police in Parker, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, wrote Friday: "The case is currently under investigation, and no information can be released at this time. If the investigation determines a crime has occurred, charges will be submitted to the DA's Office for their review."
Sources tell our sister station, FOX 31 in Denver, the case involves domestic violence allegations by Miller's ex-fiancée. Information right now is limited.
In a statement, the Broncos wrote: "We are aware of an investigation involving Von Miller and are in the process of gathering more information."
Except for a 2013 performance enhancing drug suspension and a failure to appear in court on traffic violations, Miller is a player who has mostly avoided off the field issues.
In 2018, DeSoto ISD inducted Miller into its hall of honor. He also devotes time and money to Von’s Vision, a charity that provides eye-glasses to children in underprivileged communities.
FOX 4 reached out to representatives for Miller, but have not received a statement about these allegations.
