EDGEWATER, Md. (AP) — Former NBA player Oliver Miller has been arrested on charges that he pistol-whipped a man at a cookout near his Maryland home.
Miller, 41, 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 on Wednesday morning.
It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer, and no telephone listing could be immediately found for him.
Miller was the 22nd pick in the 1992 NBA draft out of Arkansas and played for a half-dozen teams in nine seasons.
