Former Colts DT Daniel Muir Arrested After Missing Son Was Found In SWAT Raid

Former Indianapolis Colts player Daniel Muir has been arrested after his teenage son, who was reported as missing for the past two weeks, was found by a SWAT team that raided the Muir's family home in Kokomo, Indiana, Wednesday morning.

As stated by Indiana State Police, 14-year-old Bryson Muir has been taken into the care of the Cass County Department of Child Services. While the father, Muir, 40, is now facing charges of domestic battery, as well as both him and his wife, 38, Kristin Muir, are being arrested with charges of obstruction of justice.

The last time that Bryson had been seen was June 16, when he was leaving his grandmother's home in Ohio. To point out, after his mother had picked him up, his grandma was weary of letting him go, as he had signs of abuse. In view of this, the police were called, and the mom, Kristin, was pulled over while driving a car that belongs to a religious group that the Muir family has ties with, known as the Servant Leader's Foundation. That is to say, Bryson was not in the car when the vehicle was pulled over, and ever since he had disappeared.

Around this time, Cass County Department of Child Services asked police to look into allegations of domestic battery toward Bryson. Both parents agreed to bring in their son,  but then they backed out of it, so as a result this was seen as an "unwillingness to cooperate" and arrest warrants were issued.

Moreover, things escalated when the father/mother didn't show up to their court ordered appearance on Tuesday, and this led to the state police raiding the house.

Thereupon, after finding Bryson inside, he was recovered, and the picture his grandma had taken of his black eye has been released.

The grandma Cheryl Wright told Fox 59, that she believes Bryson was beaten by his father, Daniel, and that her grandson has been "brainwashed" while living on a large religious group compound in northern Indiana.

The ex-NFL defensive tackle went undrafted in 2007 out of Kent State, but ended up signing as a free agent with the Green Bay Packers. Muir had a seven-year NFL career (2007-2013), including four seasons with the Colts, in addition to short stints with the Raiders and Jets, where in total he accumulated 99 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
