According to the Denver Post, Browns linebacker Von Miller thought he could skip his court appearance on Monday morning, but was quickly ordered to appear.
Denver Bronco Von Miller was nearly two hours late for an Arapahoe County Court hearing Monday morning, but he eventually arrived and pleaded guilty to minor traffic offenses.
Miller’s attorney, Abraham Hutt, apologized to the court and said it was his fault that Miller was late. Hutt said he thought he had an agreement with prosecutors that would allow Miller to skip the hearing.
The court wasn’t thrilled that Miller was late.
“The court finds it rather ridiculous he doesn’t appear this morning and he’s mere blocks away. That’s what’s made a spectacle of these issues,” Apostoli said.
Miller, a third-year linebacker, had been at Dove Valley, the Broncos’ nearby training facility.
Miller was scheduled to appear at 10:30 a.m. for three ongoing traffic cases — one involving a previously unknown bench warrant for his arrest in a 2012 traffic case. He eventually arrived at about 12:15 p.m.
He quickly pleaded guilty to minor traffic offenses, including speeding and driving under restraint. He was ordered to complete 24 hours of community service and a level-one driving class within 90 days.
