Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

I responded to [REDACTED BY AGENCY] on 06/12/2022 at approximately 1156 hours, regarding a domestic dispute. Prior to arrival, the complainant advised dispatch, the alleged offender, James Miller, left the neighborhood in a white Ford truck. The truck made a left turn onto GA 303, headed towards GA 520. Dispatch advised Miller was a white male wearing a black hat.

I observed a white ford ranger with a white male driver, matching Millers description, make a right turn onto GA 520. I positioned my patrol vehicle behind the Ranger as it pulled into Hyde Park Commons, and conducted a GCIC/NCIC inquiry to verify it was Miller. GCIC showed the vehicle belonging to Miller. GCIC also showed the registration to be suspended and the vehicle did not have valid insurance. I activated my emergency lights and conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle as it parked in front of Winn Dixie.

I made contact with Miller at the driver’s window and obtained a GA identification card. I asked Miller for his version of the events that occurred prior to him leaving the residence. Miller stated the complainant, [VICTIM #1], asked him to make her adult son some salsa and he refused. [VICTIM #1] became upset and told Miller to move out the house. While Miller packed his belongings, Miller alleges [VICTIM #1] began removing stuff from his bags, pushing him and may have hit him at some point. Miller would not say whether or not [VICTIM #1] actually hit him, because he did not want her going to jail. Ofc. Henley spoke with [VICTIM #1] and obtained her version of the events.

While at the driver’s door speaking with Miller, I observed the odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. I asked Miller how long ago he smoked the marijuana, he advised shortly before leaving the house. I also observed a black marijuana grinder in the passenger’s seat. Miller advised he had a marijuana pipe in the vehicle and no marijuana. A search was conducted of the vehicle. I located a glass smoking pipe with marijuana residue in the driver’s seat, and a glass marijuana pipe in Miller’s cigarette pack. The two pipes and grinder were destroyed on scene.

Following a GCIC/NCIC inquiry, Miller was arrested for Driving While License Suspended (susp: 01/05/2021, license denial), No Insurance, and he was wanted by the Glynn County Police Department for Simple Battery FVA. Ofc. Roberts stood by with the vehicle until A&J towing, the next rotational wrecker, arrived and took possession of the vehicle. I transported Miller to the Glynn County Detention Center, served warrant [REDACTED BY AGENCY] (Simple Battery FVA), Citations for DWLS and No Insurance and turned him over to jail staff.

No charges will be pursued regarding the altercation with [VICTIM #1].
