Broncos Star Von Miller

Walks Into a Gun Club

Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller was arrested Sunday at a gun club in Colorado ... but his arrest has NOTHING to do with firearms, TMZ has learned.

The 24-year-old All-Pro was trying to enter the Centennial Gun Store and Range just outside of Denver -- and submitted to a routine mandatory background check, as required by everyone looking to shoot at the range.

But the background check revealed a warrant out for Miller's arrest -- which was issued back in January after he failed to appear in court to face multiple traffic violations.

According to law enforcement, Miller had been charged with careless driving, driving without a license and having no proof of insurance back in October 2012.

Miller was taken into custody at the gun shop -- and was hauled to a nearby Sheriff's Dept. where he was booked ... and posed for a mug shot, obtained by TMZ.

 Miller was eventually released on a $1,000 bond.

A rep for the Broncos says the team is aware of the arrest -- but didn't say if he will face disciplinary action from the team or the league.

ChicagoAnnie: He was charged with "not showing proof of insurance", not with "driving without insurance". Colorado is good at BS fines like that. If you don't have the insurance card in the car, you get a ticket. It's easily dismissed if you can show the judge you really do have insurance but it's a PITA. Colorado will also fine you 10 dollars for not signing the reverse side of your car registration. See what I mean?

Now, for the real reason I'm posting this: There is a lot wrong with this story. Colorado does not require a background check to shoot at a range. I have been in Colorado for over 40 years and I have never heard of such nonsense. A quick check with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the state agency which provides background checks for firearms purchases and concealed carry permits, has never heard of it either. Given the laws in this state, it is more reasonable to assume he was trying to make a purchase rather than shoot something he already owned.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not apologizing for anyone who gets paid millions to play with a ball and can't stay out of jail, but this story is at best incomplete, at worst an out and out fabrication or deception.

Why does anybody who makes a good living drive anywhere without a licence, registration, or proof of insurance.

It's like they don't care - like they are above the law. It's not a white or black thing, it's just a I don't give a fuque thing.
