31-year-old Kevin Miller Jr. was asleep behind the wheel of his car, with its hazard lights activated in the middle lane near the Bell Road and Blue Hole Road intersection in the early hours of March 8th. Officers observed this and conducted a community caretaking stop, during which Miller Jr. had woken up. When officers approached, they asked Miller Jr. to exit the vehicle, and when he did, he showed multiple signs of intoxication, reeking of alcohol. Officers noticed Miller Jr. had a holster protruding from his pants pocket, so they asked where his handgun was. Miller Jr. explained that the gun was mounted via magnet under the vehicle’s dashboard. Officers asked if Miller Jr. would take sobriety tests, which he did and performed poorly. Officers then went to detain Miller Jr., but he became resistive. Shortly after, Miller Jr. complied and was put in the back of the patrol car. Miller Jr. then tried to extend his leg, preventing officers from closing the door. Then, another officer assisted and pulled Miller Jr. in from the other side. Officers informed Miller Jr. of implied consent once he was secured in the backseat but refused to answer whether he consented. Miller Jr. kept asking officers why he was arrested, which was already told to him, then Miller Jr. stated he was not drunk and did not drink. Miller Jr. also claimed that he had performed a breathalyzer test, which he had not done. Miller Jr. was taken into custody for driving under the influence, implied consent, resisting arrest, and possessing a weapon while under the influence.
