Former NFL Player Daniel Muir and Wife Arrested After Missing Son Found Safe

Former NFL player Daniel Muir and his wife were arrested this week after their missing son, Bryson, was found safe.

The arrest came after a SWAT operation at Muir's Indianapolis home Wednesday morning by Indiana State Police (ISP).

Bryson, 14, had been missing since June 16 after a visit to his grandmother's home in Cleveland, Ohio. The grandmother reported that Bryson had a black eye and a busted lip. A Silver Alert was issued following Bryson's disappearance.

Authorities believe Bryson was in danger, and the Cass County Department of Children's Services has launched an investigation into allegations of domestic violence.

The ISP initially made contact with Daniel and Kristen, who agreed to take Bryson to meet them but later reneged, signaling a reluctance to cooperate. Arrest warrants were issued when the couple failed to appear in court on Tuesday, prompting the SWAT raid.

Daniel and Kristen Muir are both facing preliminary charges of obstruction of justice, a level 6 felony. Additionally, Daniel faces a domestic violence charge. “This is an active criminal investigation and as such, there is no further information to release at this time,” ISP stated, confirming that Bryson appeared “safe and well.”

Bryson's grandmother told FOX 59 she believes he was “brainwashed” by his parents and the religious group Servant Leader's Foundation. The Muirs live in a compound owned by Straitway Truth Ministries, which some allege is a cult.

Daniel Muir, who went undrafted in 2007, was picked up by the Green Bay Packers. He also played for several other teams, including the Indianapolis Colts, where he spent four seasons. During his NFL career, Muir recorded 128 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one pass deflection.
