Police cited Miller for DUI, eluding a police officer, negligent operation and excessive speed. Police also learned Miller had an active arrest warrant from Winooski police, a press release said.

He was lodged at the Chittenden regional Correctional Facility and was due in Chittenden Superior Court – Criminal Division on September 12.
