According to the police report, Miller's wife accuses him of dragging her by the hair, tearing a braid out of her head, and almost ripping off her shirt. Five children, four under the age of 10, were in the house at the time.

She said Roy Miller threw her cellphone in the toilet and physically restrained her from retrieving it. The verbal argument allegedly turned physical, with Nicole Miller saying he pushed her around and grabbed her hair.

Miller was told by the judge that any violence toward his wife would break the terms of his release, according to Chana.

The victim in the case is also no longer pressing charges, per WJAX. However, eventually, Nicole Miller was able to get her phone and call the police.

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

National Football League veteran Roy Miller III was sleeping.

Later, police found Roy Miller asleep in the master bedroom. He agreed to speak with police outside before being arrested.

Both had used alcohol that night, according to the report.

The Chiefs, who are off this week, said in statement to the Associated Press that they were aware of the incident and gathering facts. He was picked up in Jacksonville after leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013. He signed with the Chiefs on August 2. 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 torn his right Achilles tendon last October, ending his season on injured reserve. They declined any further comment.
