Miller arrested for missing court date for traffic citation

DENVER -- Denver Nuggets point guard Andre Miller was
arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a traffic
citation, police said Thursday.

Detective John White said police arrested Miller on Wednesday at
the request of the Colorado State Patrol. Miller had gone to the
Denver sheriff's car pound to retrieve a vehicle stolen from him
when he was found to have an outstanding warrant from the State
Patrol, police said.

Police were called around 1 p.m., and Miller was released around
4:45 p.m., police said.

Nuggets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe said he believed the
citation was for speeding and said Miller probably forgot his court

"I've done it before, when I missed a court date," he said. "Andre is an extremely responsible person. But you've got to
take care of your traffic tickets."

Miller played in the Nuggets' 99-97 overtime loss to the
Los Angeles Lakers in Denver Wednesday night, scoring 11 points.

Vandeweghe said Miller was on time for the game.
