Von Miller Not Helping His Cause With Arrest Before Appeal Hearing
Just a day before Von Miller was scheduled to appeal his four-game suspension from the NFL, it looks like the linebacker has made another mistake. Miller was reportedly arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court. The charges against him were: careless driving, driving without a license, and no proof of insurance. After he failed to appear in court to face the charges, an arrest warrant was issued on January 2nd.
While this unrelated incident may not have an impact on his appeal, it certainly makes him look bad. To get charged with all of those things in the first place, shows irresponsibility on his part. Having a valid license and proof of insurance in your car, are not hard things to accomplish. Then to just blow off court and act like it’s no big deal, really speaks volumes about his character.
Sure, the charges and his arrest aren’t that big of a deal in the scheme of things, but this whole incident could have been avoided by a few simple steps on Miller’s part.
Nothing really figures to come out of this whole ordeal, besides Miller looking foolish. For those that had sympathy for him and his pending four-game suspension, they might think twice about standing up for him again. It’s still unclear what exactly his suspension is for and if it will hold up, but there seems to be mounting evidence that Miller is not conducting himself in a manner that the NFL would deem appropriate.
