Embattled Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is dealing with traffic issues not just in Colorado, but in California as well.
Court records in Orange County, Calif., show Miller, who is serving a six game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, had an unresolved speeding ticket from 2012, leading to a bench warrant.
Miller was cited for speeding above 65 MPH on March 8, 2012, according to online court records.
The warrant was first reported Wednesday evening by The Denver Post.
Miller's Washington D.C.-based attorney, Mark Schamel, issued a statement to USA TODAY Sports Wednesday evening in which he described the California incident as "a simple infraction." Schamel said the issue would be resolved by Thursday.
"This is not a criminal case and we have confirmed that there is no warrant for his arrest," Schamel said. "This is much ado about nothing."
Miller was cited for speeding and driving on a suspended license in Arapahoe County, Colo. last week. Last month he was arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in an Arapahoe County court from a traffic citation from October 2012.
Asked about that speeding ticket today, head coach John Fox said the Broncos are not happy with Miller.
"Everyone here has an individual responsibility to not only themselves but to this organization as well as to this football team. It's something we're not pleased about, and we'll leave it at that," Fox said.
