More details pertaining to Miller's arrest have yet to be released.

As for the implications it might have for the Chiefs and Miller's potential availability, Kansas City actually has a bye-week this weekend. He was held in jail without bond until he appeared in court Saturday afternoon.

According to police reports, Miller is accused of dragging his wife by the hair, tearing a braid from her hair, and almost ripping her shirt.

The argument allegedly escalated into a physical confrontation and Nicole Miller told police her husband grabbed her by the hair, pushed her around, threw her phone into the toilet and prevented her from retrieving it.

When police arrived at the couple's home, Roy Miller was inside sleeping.

Miller, 30, is being investigated for domestic battery by the state attorney's office in Florida.

The report includes corroborating testimony from witnesses, including one who said she heard the couple arguing and brought the kids to the other end of the house.

Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Roy Miller. He agreed to speak with police outside before being arrested.

The Chiefs, who are off this week, said in statement to the Associated Press that they were aware of the incident and gathering facts.

Miller started his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009. Miller played a backup role for the Chiefs this season, collecting six total tackles and a broken up pass in seven games. "We will have no further comment at this time". He signed with the Chiefs on August 2. He torn his right Achilles tendon last October, ending his season on injured reserve.
