The judge hearing the case Saturday said the alleged victim in the incident no longer wished to press charges, according to reports from Action News Jax journalist Kaitlyn Chana who attended the hearing.

Miller said in court that he will be hiring an attorney.

"This morning we were informed about an incident involving one of our players, Roy Miller", the Chiefs said in a statement Saturday. He was originally drafted in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Roy Miller was released from the Jacksonville Jaguars on march 12, after playing four seasons with the team. The Chiefs signed him in August. "We will have no further comment at this time". In late September, after President Trump criticized protesting National Football League players at a campaign speech in Alabama, Miller placed his hand on the shoulder of well-known anthem protester Marcus Peters.

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