Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller's legal troubles are over

Von Miller’s legal troubles are now over. An attorney for the Denver Broncos linebacker pleaded guilty on his behalf to have two traffic violations, speeding and illegal lane change, in an Arapahoe County court yesterday afternoon. Miller is recovering from season ending knee surgery and was not present at yesterday’s hearing.

These latest charges occurred in September. Miller was arrested in August for failing to appear in court for other traffic violations in October 2012. The 2012 charges include careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance. Miller’s legal troubles were merely the beginning of a turbulent 2013 regular season.

Miller’s guilty plea had seven points deducted from his license; he must pay an undisclosed amount of fees and fines.

Miller was suspended the first six games of the regular season by the NFL for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Miller continually made headlines via his run-ins with the law after the announcement of his suspension. After sitting out the first six games of the Broncos Super Bowl run, Miller tore his anterior cruciate ligament on Dec. 23 against the Houston Texans, forcing the Broncos pass rusher to sit out of Super Bowl XLVIII.

Von Miller’s recovery puts him on track to start the regular season opener in early September, when the Broncos start their second consecutive run at a Super Bowl appearance.
