Broncos’ star Von Miller will not be charged in criminal investigation
Denver Broncos star edge rusher Von Miller will not be charged as part of a criminal investigation purportedly stemming from his relationship with pregnant ex-girlfriend, Megan Denise.
Adam Schefter of ESPN was among those to report Miller will not face charges. Schefter added Miller’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, was “unavailable for comment.”
No charges will be brought against Broncos' LB Von Miller in regards to the ongoing investigation by the Parker Police Department, per source. Miller's attorney, Harvey Steinberg, was unavailable for comment.

The Parker Police Department launched the investigation shortly after Denise posted screenshots of text between the two in which the person allegedly thought to be Miller wishes for Denise to have a miscarriage.
Miller posted to his Instagram story declaring the allegations “fake news.” Denise later cleared up misconceptions she had been physically abused via a separate Instagram post:
“In light of recent media reports regarding my relationship with Von, I feel that I need to address a couple things,” Denise wrote, via 9News. “First and foremost, at no point in our relationship was there any type of physical abuse or violence by Von, whatsoever. For anyone to say otherwise, or speculate such, is wrong.
“With regards to my (previous) social media posts, a part was misconstrued and taken out of context. I do regret making a private situation public, and in doing so, bringing unwanted attention to both Von and myself.”
What this means for Miller’s future is unclear at least in an immediate sense.
The three-time All-Pro is still under contract, and Broncos general manager George Paton suggested Thursday the team wanted to bring Miller back. It’s quite possible Von Miller will have to restructure his deal a bit.
In any event, the 31-year-old will look to put the criminal investigation behind after no charges were filed.
