When police arrived, Roy was found sleeping in the master bedroom. He agreed to speak with an officer outside the house and was arrested.

The judge ordered Miller's release, and said he was allowed to contact the victim, but said if there is any violence toward the victim, then his release will be rescinded, Action News Jax reports. Prosecutors requested more time to investigate the matter. He was originally drafted in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Chiefs signed him in August.

He had torn his Achilles tendon last season and missed the final 10 games of the year as a result.

Miller, playing in his ninth National Football League season, has appeared in seven games this season and he made two tackles in the Chiefs' 28-17 loss to the Cowboys in Dallas last Sunday.

The Chiefs, who are off this week, said in statement to the Associated Press that they were aware of the incident and gathering facts. They declined any further comment.
