Ex-NBA player Oliver Miller accused of assault

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 pick in the 1992 NBA draft out of Arkansas

and played for a half-dozen teams in nine seasons.
