Chiefs release DL Roy Miller after domestic battery charges

Chiefs' Roy Miller arrested in Jacksonville on battery charge

Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Roy Miller was arrested early Saturday in Florida on a domestic battery charge, according to Duval County jail records.

Nicole Miller also had a small abrasion on her face and a scratch on the back of her neck, according to the police report.

She said Roy Miller threw her cellphone in the toilet and physically restrained her from retrieving it.

Officers were dispatched to his home after midnight Saturday. While whatever this means in terms of football is the least important aspect of any of this, the franchise will have plenty of time to do its diligence in finding out if Roy Miller should be withheld from any team related activities or games moving forward.

Miller, who was released with a November 28 court date, recorded six combined tackles in seven games as a backup defensive tackle.

According to the arrest report, Nicole told police that they went on a "date night" to the Jacksonville Zoo Saturday.

Another hearing was set for November 28, ESPN reported. "I can't really talk about anything from a legal standpoint, so I'm gonna just leave it at that". "I understand you might ask, but you're going to get the same answer". They have backup defensive tackles Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Jarvis Jenkins, but Reid acknowledged that general manager Brett Veach had spent the weekend considering options. He signed with the Chiefs Aug. 2. Their next game is November 19 against the New York Giants. He signed with the Chiefs on August 2. Bennett ultimately returned to the New England Patriots.
