Ex-NBAer Oliver Miller Arrested for Assault

by April 20, 2011

Always unfortunate to hear about former NBA hoopers getting themselves into trouble. Via the Worldwide Leader: “Former NBA player Oliver Miller has been arrested and accused of pistol-whipping a man at a cookout near his Maryland home. The 41-year-old Miller was taken into custody Wednesday morning. Anne Arundel County police have charged him with assault, reckless endangerment and other offenses. Police say they responded to a barbecue in Arnold on Monday night after a man reported being struck in the face and head by a pistol. Police say Miller drove off and was arrested at his home in Edgewater, about 20 miles from Arnold. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer, and no telephone listing could be found. Miller was the 22nd pick in the 1992 NBA draft out of Arkansas and played for a half-dozen teams in nine seasons.”
