Denver Broncos head coach John Fox is not very happy about Von Miller these days. 

This is Fox's latest sentiment as confirmed by Lindsay H. Jones of USA Today. In Jones' words,"Miller, currently serving a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, was cited for speeding and driving with a suspended license last week near his home in Arapahoe County after being pulled over for driving 13 miles per hour above the speed limit." 

The Denver Posts's Mike Klis writes the incident took place on September 5, the day of the Broncos' home season opener against the Super Bowl champions Baltimore Ravens. Miller reportedly did 38 miles per hour in a 25-mph zone. The black BMW is registered to Gloria, his mother. 

The state trooper, Deputy Beau Baggett, wrote the phrase "MUST APPEAR IN COURT" in capital letters and even encircled it for good measure. The court date for Miller is set for October 28.  

Jones notes he was not arrested. His father, Von Sr., took over driving duties after his son was given the citation. 

Multiple ESPN sources believe Miller was on his way home from a meeting with NFL Players Association (NFLPA) lawyers about withholding $1.25 million in signing bonus money because of his six-game suspension. 

ESPN's Jeff Legwold refers to his colleague, Senior NFL Insider Chris Mortensen, who says the league will not increase his suspension due to the latest citation. 

Fox voiced his displeasure over Miller's failure to hold himself accountable for his actions. 

"Everyone here has an individual responsibility to not only themselves but to this organization as well as to this football team. It's something we're not pleased about, and we'll leave it at that." 

Miller was arrested last month for failing to appear in court in relation to citations against the 24-year-old for careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance, per Denver's ABC 7 News

The previous court date was set for December 31, a date which Miller reportedly spent watching a Red Hot Chilli Peppers concert in Las Vegas. 

Fox also spoke about Miller's August arrest a few days later, but his statments did not prove to be prophetic.

"Obviously, you're very disappointed any time a guy didn't take care of his business, but we support him. He's going to be fine. He's dealt with it. He'll recover from it."

Miller has turned down all interview requests since he was suspended by the NFL on August 20, per Jones.
