DENVER -- Broncos linebacker Von Miller, already facing an appeal hearing with league officials Thursday over a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, was arrested Sunday on an outstanding traffic warrant.

Team officials confirmed Miller was arrested Sunday at the Centennial Gun Club, a facility that's near the Broncos' practice facility in south suburban Denver. Miller was arrested for failing to appear for a court appearance from an October traffic stop in which he was charged with careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance.

"We have been aware of the matter involving Von Miller's failure to appear in court for traffic violations," the team said in a statement. "It was reported to the league earlier this week and is being handled through the legal system."

His original court date had been scheduled for Dec. 31.

Miller was released on a $1,000 bond Sunday, an off day for the Broncos.
