Colorado traffic charges dropped against Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller

ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. - The traffic charges against Broncos linebacker Von Miller were dismissed Thursday, the Denver Post first reported.

Miller was arrested last August at a Centennial gun store when he tried to buy a gun and a background check revealed an outstanding arrest warrant for failing to appear in court on the October traffic ticket.

It turned out Miller had two traffic cases.

Miller was cited on Sept. 5 for driving 38 mph in a 25 mph zone in Foxfield, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson confirmed to 7NEWS. Miller was also cited for driving without a license.

Miller was with his father, who was then allowed to drive off with his son, Robinson said.

In October 2012, Miller was also ticketed just blocks from his home -- also for driving without a valid license, along with careless driving and no proof of insurance.

In October 2013, Miller was ordered to serve 24 hours of community service and told to take a Level 1 driving class within 90 days. He did both and the judge dismissed the charges.

Miller had surgery earlier this month to repair his torn right ACL. Miller's rehab is expected to take six to nine months, meaning he could miss the start of the Denver Broncos' training camp next summer.

Miller's right knee buckled when he was blocked cleanly by a Texans tight end during a game in Houston on Dec. 22.
