Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Von Miller turned himself in to police Thursday in response to an arrest warrant in a domestic violence case involving his pregnant girlfriend, according to the Glenn Heights Police Department in suburban Dallas.

Miller was booked in DeSoto Tri-City Jail, posted bond and was released, the police department told news outlets.

Officers responded to a “major disturbance call” at the couple’s home in Dallas on Wednesday morning. Miller is accused of arguing with a pregnant woman and then assaulting her. The charge of assaulting a pregnant woman is a third-degree felony in Texas.

Police said Miller departed the scene before officers arrived. The alleged victim was treated for minor injuries at the scene, police said.

The Bills and NFL confirmed in separate statements they were notified of the matter but offered no additional details.

“This morning, we were made aware of an incident involving Von Miller,” the Bills said in a statement. “We are in the process of gathering more information and will have no further comment at this point.”

The NFL said the following in a statement: “We are aware of the matter and have been in contact with the club. We will follow all legal developments. We have no further comment at this time.”

The Bills (6-6) are on a bye this week with no team activities scheduled.

Miller, 34, previously was investigated — but not charged — for domestic violence in 2021 in Parker, Colo.

An eight-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time Super Bowl champion, Miller has two tackles in eight games this season.

Miller has recorded 123.5 sacks in 169 games (161 starts) with the Denver Broncos (2011-19, 2021), Los Angeles Rams (2021) and Bills. He was the MVP of Super Bowl 50.
