Oliver Miller arrested for assault
EDGEWATER, Md. -- Former NBA player Oliver Miller has been arrested and accused of pistol-whipping a man at a cookout near his Maryland home.
The 41-year-old Miller was taken into custody Tuesday.
Anne Arundel County police have charged him with assault, reckless endangerment and other offenses.
Police say they responded to a barbecue in Arnold on Sunday 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, about 20 miles from Arnold.
It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer, and no telephone listing could be found.
Miller was the 22nd overall pick by Phoenix in the 1992 NBA draft out of Arkansas and played for a half-dozen teams in nine seasons.
