He was taken into custody on suspicion of domestic battery at 4:53 a.m. after an incident that involved a minor injury, according to jail records. No further information on the arrest was available.
Miller, 30, was released on his own recognizance after making a court appearance Saturday and another hearing is scheduled for Nov. 28, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
Miller has appeared in seven games this season and made two tackles, including one in the Chiefs’ 28-17 loss to the Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday. The team has a bye this week.
