Former Jaguars' DT arrested

He was released on recognizance Saturday afternoon and was set to appear in Duval County court November 28. The verbal argument allegedly turned physical, with Nicole Miller saying he pushed her around and grabbed her hair.

Roy Miller then called her son into the room with him and barricaded himself in the bedroom, according to the arrest report.

Roy Miller, 30, was arrested early Saturday in Florida on a domestic battery charge. Her shirt was nearly torn off, according to the report.

She told cops that her husband also threw her phone into the toilet and refused to let her retrieve it.

One witness told an officer she saw "her dad on top of her mom".

Police found Roy Miller sleeping inside the bedroom and he agreed to speak to police after being awakened. Nicole Miller, who said the couple has been married six and a half years, declined to provide a written statement. He played for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2013-16.

There is no other information at this time, but the Chiefs are aware of the incident. He was originally drafted in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Chiefs signed Miller back in August. Details have yet to unfold here, but these types of situations typically result in a suspension of some kind and for any sort of fringe player, it can usually equal an outright release from the team.

He has appeared in seven games this season and made two tackles, including one in the Chiefs' 28-17 loss to the Cowboys in Dallas last week. "We will have no further comment at this time".
