Detective John White said police arrested Miller on Wednesday at the request of the Colorado State Patrol. Miller had gone to the Denver sheriff's car pound to retrieve a vehicle stolen from him when he was found to have an outstanding warrant from the State Patrol, police said.

Police were called around 1 p.m., and Miller was released around 4:45 p.m., police said.

Nuggets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe said he believed the citation was for speeding and said Miller probably forgot his court date.

"I've done it before, when I missed a court date," he said. "Andre is an extremely responsible person. But you've got to take care of your traffic tickets."

Miller played in the Nuggets' 99-97 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in Denver Wednesday night, scoring 11 points.

Vandeweghe said Miller was on time for the game.
