AceShowbiz - Von Miller's alleged assault victim has downplayed the incident. The woman said that "no one assaulted anyone" after the NFL linebacker turned himself in to police.
"We're fine," she wrote in a text message sent to WFAA. "Things were blown way out of context. This is actually outrageous!"
Noting that there was a "huge misunderstanding," she said it was just a "verbal disagreement" between the two. "No one assaulted anyone," she added. "This is insane. And sad."
Glenn Heights Police Chief Nick Bristow confirmed to the outlet that Von turned himself surrendered to police at around 3 P.M. on Thursday, November 30. It arrived just hours after Dallas authorities issued an arrest warrant for the 34-year-old athlete.
The Buffalo Bills player allegedly assaulted his pregnant girlfriend during a heated exchange on Wednesday. It was said that they were arguing in their bedroom because she didn't want to travel on her birthday this week.
Afterward, the woman left the bedroom and went to the office of the home. Von was reportedly angry as his partner slammed the door, so he yelled at her and asked her to "get out" of the property.
The girlfriend "attempted to comply", according to the affidavit. That was when Von alleggedly "began to shove and push her, all while telling her to leave from the unit." He also applied "pressure around the [girlfriend's] neck for 3 to 5 seconds before letting go."
The Buffalo Bills has issued a statement on the allegations leveled at Von. "This morning, we were made aware of an incident involving Von Miller. We are in the process of gathering more information and will have no further comment at this point," it read.
