The Kansas City Chiefs 320-pound nose tackle is accused of dragging his wife by her hair and ripping a braid from her head, ESPN reported after viewing the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office report.

The two began to argue when Roy Miller arrived, according to the report, and the confrontation turned physical.

According to police reports, Miller is accused of dragging his wife by the hair, tearing a braid from her hair, and almost ripping her shirt. The report indicated that several kids were home at the time of the incident. Roy Miller also allegedly tossed her phone in the toilet and would not let her immediately retrieve it.

National Football League veteran Roy Miller III was sleeping.

There is no other information at this time, but the Chiefs are aware of the incident. "We are still in the process of gathering details on the situation".
