Pursuit Ends on Threat to Release Dog

(La Porte, IN) - A 58-year-old La Porte man should know by now that he can’t outrun the police.


William Miller, Jr. has a lifetime ban on his driver’s license, but he was allegedly behind the wheel of a van Tuesday night when an officer tried pulling him over on Clay Street. He reportedly hit the gas but soon slammed on his brakes on Jefferson Ave. and fled from the vehicle. 


Miller was running down Adams Street with an officer chasing him but stopped and lay on the ground when a threat was made to release a police dog. The pursuing officer held him at gunpoint until other police officers arrived and took him away in handcuffs.


At the time, Miller had a warrant out for his arrest on allegations he violated probation. He’s charged with Level 5 felony Habitual Traffic Offender and two counts of Resisting Law Enforcement.
