The life of Broncos linebacker Von Miller seems to get more complicated by the day. Miller -- who will be appealing his league mandated four-game suspension on Thursday -- was arrested over the weekend in Colorado, according to KMGH-TV in Denver

Miller was arrested on Sunday in a gun club in Araphoe County on a failure to appear in court warrant. Miller was charged with careless driving, driving without a license and having no proof of insurance in October. The 24-year-old never showed up for his court date and a warrant was issued for his arrest in January. 

"We have been aware of the matter involving Von Miller’s failure to appear in court for traffic violations," the Broncos said in a statement. "It was reported to the league earlier this week and is being handled through the legal system."

As for Miller's appeal, NFLPA assisstant executive director George Atallah has said that Miller's suspension was not the result of a violation of the league's PED policy. "I'm confident about it. Everybody is confident about it," Miller told the Denver Post on Thursday after the Broncos beat the 49ers in their preseason opener. 

Miller, who was booked and released on Sunday, didn't miss any practice time because the Broncos were off.
