Dayton Basketball Player Gets Drunk, Trashes Bar, Gets Arrested, Picks Fight in Jail, Gets Knocked Out (VIDEO)
Dayton Flyers basketball player Sam Miller had one hell of a wild night on Saturday. Unfortunately, given all the criminal charges now pending, it could end up costing him his basketball career.
Miller, a 20-year-old junior forward from Arlington, Virginia, was arrested outside a bar in Beavercreek, Ohio, around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. Police were called to Caddy’s Taphouse after somebody reported an assault. According to the bartender, when she told a visibly intoxicated Miller that she could not serve him any more drinks, he pushed her and knocked all the glasses off the bar. Then, after a security guard escorted him outside, Miller pushed him and said he was going to punch someone, which prompted the security guard to put Miller on the ground and hold him there until the police arrived.
Upon their arrival, officers noted that Miller’s speech was slurred and difficult to comprehend. The bartender said she didn’t want to press chargers, so they just arrested him for disorderly conduct and underage drinking. However, Miller proved uncooperative, screaming and kicking as police loaded him into their cruiser.
Take a look:
Amazingly, Miller wasn’t done yet. According to the police report, after arriving at the police station Miller urinated on the floor of his holding cell. When another prisoner in the cell complained, Miller walked up and slapped him in the face.
Needless to say, that didn’t go over well. By the time officers were able to break the fight up, Miller had a bump on his head and blood streaming from his nose.
Now, in addition to the disorderly conduct and underage drinking charges, Miller is also facing an assault charge.
Take a look:
Miller appeared in court on Monday and pled not guilty. Bond was posted by his uncle, James Pera. His lawyer declined to comment on the situation.
The University of Dayton issued a statement saying they are aware of the situation, but cannot comment due to federal privacy laws. However, they did say they would respond to the incident in accordance with the University’s Student Code of Conduct.
One would have to think that Miller will be suspended from the basketball team until his student conduct hearing, which probably will not go very well.
Hope it was worth it, Sam.
