As earlier reported on by Examiner.com, today, June 10 2014, Matthew Miller, the 23 year old poster child for how to screw up your life is being charged with attempted homicide of a Police Officer as well as felony escape. . During an 8:00 p.m. arraignment before Judge Maggie Snow, bail was set at 5 million dollars. Being as Miller, who did not have that kind of money on him, he got carted off to jail.
Shortly before 9:00 p.m. he was escorted from the Bensalem Police Department.to a waiting prisoner transport wagon. When asked about his crime, Miller retorted that "Bensalem Police are a bunch of lies", and called the officers names as well as a healthy use of the "F word". He was brought out in a white jumpsuit and shackled .
Inside the jail cell, he was verbally abusive and Director of Public Safety , Fred Harran said that he wanted his officers to escort him to prison to stave off any other incidents.. Miller,of the 400 block of Wicker Ave in Bensalem was on a county work release detail for theft charges. The work release program is designed to keep inmates busy while not exposing them to the harsh realities of prison. They clean litter and clean county property. Miller walked away from his detail. That would guarantee him more time.
There was speculation that Miller might be on drugs but even it that was true, he is guaranteed substantial prison time for what he did. He is accused of stabbing a Police Officer and attempting too kill him. The cop is going to be fine. He was saved by his vest. Miller allegedly then stole the police vehicle and dumped it in a school in the far Northeast section of the city.
Miller has a criminal history that includes arrests for DUI and disorderly conduct. His charges today are felonies. He claimed to have an attorney and did not talk to police when they tried to question him.
