Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Roy Miller was arrested early Saturday in Florida on a domestic battery charge, according to Duval County jail records.

Miller was jailed shortly before 5 a.m. by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. The incident involved a minor injury, but no other details were available about the alleged battery.

According to local news outlets, Miller was released on his own recognizance after an initial court appearance Saturday afternoon. Another hearing was set for Nov. 28.

The Chiefs are aware of the situation.

“This morning we were informed about an incident involving one of our players, Roy Miller,” the Chiefs said in a statement. “We are still in the process of gathering details on the situation. We will have no further comment at this time.”

The Chiefs are on a bye this week. The AFC West leaders next visit the New York Giants on Nov. 19.

The 30-year-old Miller played four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars before being released March 12. He signed with $1.4 million deal with the Chiefs on Aug. 2 and has six tackles and one pass breakup in seven games.
