The former Phoenix Suns and Detroit Pistons centre was not at the scene when police arrived but he was tracked down and arrested via eyewitness accounts and a 9mm Glock magazine left at the scene.

Miller also faces charges of reckless endangerment, use of a handgun in a violent crime and other gun possession charges, according to the report.
