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.

She said Roy threw her phone in the toilet and physically restrained her from retrieving it.

Roy Miller then called her son into the room with him and barricaded himself in the bedroom, according to the arrest report.

She sustained a small abrasion on her face and a scratch on the back of her neck.

Reports indicate that several children were home at the time of the incident.

When police arrived at the couple's home, Roy Miller was inside sleeping.

The report includes corroborating testimony from witnesses, including one who said she heard the couple arguing and brought the kids to the other end of the house.

Local media reports suggested the boat was overloaded with passengers and the buoyancy of water changed leading to the disaster. A helpline with toll free number 18004250101 was opened to help the relatives of the victims to get the information.

The Chiefs are on a bye week.

He was a full-time starter for the Jaguars during his three years there, with his best performance coming during his final season in 2015 when he recorded 40 tackles, four sacks and a forced fumble.

He is scheduled to have a first appearance in court at 1 p.m. ET.

The Chiefs, who are off this week, said in statement to the Associated Press that they were aware of the incident and gathering facts. He was originally drafted in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

For those unaware why Miller was in Jacksonville, since he plays for Kansas City, it is worth noting he started his National Football League career with the Jaguars. "We will have no further comment at this time".

The Chiefs signed Miller back in August.
