Wausau alderman facing OWI charges

by

WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) – A Wausau alderman has been released on a signature bond after being charged this afternoon with felony evasion and first offense OWI.

Thomas Miller was arrested early this morning after refusing to stop for a police officer. Miller was spotted driving erratically on Merrill Avenue at 2am. He continued driving for nearly a half mile with an officer following him with sirens on. Miller eventually stopped in his driveway.

The officer, who was not aware that Miller was an alderman, took him to the Marathon County sheriffs department and gave him a breath test. His blood alcohol level was 0.17 – twice the legal limit for driving.

Miller claimed when he was arrested that he was coming home from a family member’s house, and that he wasn’t away that a police cruiser was behind him trying to pull him over.

Miller represents Wausau’s 8th Ward on the west side.
