Von Miller two hours late to court appearance; magistrate not pleased
Perhaps Von Miller needs a new calendar. Once again, he's missed a court appearance.
Von Miller hasn't been real good about keeping up with his off-field legal schedule.
He was arrested in August for missing a court date, and on Monday, he skipped another court appearance in Arapahoe County count, according to the Denver Post. Miller eventually arrived nearly two hours late and pleaded guilty to speeding and driving under restraint.
But before Miller entered the courtroom, it sounded like magistrate Christina Apostoli didn't take the snub very well.
"The court finds it rather ridiculous he doesn't appear this morning and he's mere blocks away. That's what's made a spectacle of these issues," Apostoli said.
Miller was scheduled to appear at 10:30 a.m. Monday to face two cases involving traffic violations, but only Abraham Hutt, Miller's attorney, arrived at court.
Hutt already had asked Apostoli on Friday to waive Miller's appearance, but she declined to do so. Hutt later told the court it was his fault Miller wasn't there, and the linebacker arrived about 12:15 p.m.
After Miller pleaded guilty, Apostoli ordered him to complete 24 hours of community service. Miller also must complete a level-one driving class within 30 days.
A final hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 23. But have no fear. Miller is not required to be there.
