The Dallas Police Department announced in a statement that Miller and the alleged victim had a verbal argument that led to Miller assaulting the woman, based on a preliminary investigation of a "major disturbance call" on Wednesday.

Police said Miller left the scene before police arrived while the alleged victim was treated for minor injuries.

WFAA television in Dallas, who cited multiple police sources and court documents in their report, said the woman was Miller's longtime girlfriend.
