Back in January, star rush linebacker Von Miller became the subject of a criminal investigation by the Parker Police Department in Colorado. The news came after his ex-girlfriend shared screenshots of private conversations with the eight-time Pro Bowler that cast him in an unfavorable light.
Police in Parker, Colorado turned the results of their investigation over to the District Attorney for the 18th Judicial District.
On Friday, the district attorney’s office decided to not file any charges against him:
Me’Gan Denise — Miller’s pregnant ex- girlfriend — released a statement via her Instagram account back in January to say any reports of domestic violence on her ex-boyfriend’s part is false.
“In light of recent media reports regarding my relationship with Von, I feel that I need to address a couple things,” Denise wrote. “First and foremost, at no point in our relationship was there any type of physical abuse or violence by Von, whatsoever. For anyone to say otherwise, or speculate such, is wrong.
“With regards to my (previous) social media posts, a part was misconstrued and taken out of context. I do regret making a private situation public, and in doing so, bringing unwanted attention to both Von and myself.
“Von and I are excited to be welcoming our baby into the world, and are committed to raising our child with love and compassion, together as a family.
Sincerely, Megan Denise.”
It looks like district attorney agreed.
Miller will turn 32 years old later this month and is coming off a 2020 season lost entirely to an ankle injury that required corrective surgery.
He is set to enter the final year of the contract that made him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history back in 2016. The team has an option to exercise, or pick up, Miller’s option, or let him go.
