The head of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has been arrested after soliciting an undercover officer in a restroom downtown.It's hard to believe Miller would engage in such conduct in a restroom known to be a target of undercover police for such acts of public indecency. In May, 2006, an undercover police officer arrested a Republican Township Assessor from Evansville for engaging in a similar act in this bathroom. A few years earlier, a New Albany school principal and member of the State Board of Education, got busted in this same bathroom for public indecency. I guess misery loves company. Miller and his wife live in Carmel with their three children and are active members of St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church in Westfield according to Rinehart. Gov. Mitch Daniels' office was unaware of Miller's arrest when contacted by Rinehart. He reportedly had gone home sick earlier in the day.
Andrew J. Miller, 40, of Carmel, was arrested Wednesday afternoon at Claypool Court, connected to Circle Centre Mall near Washington and Illinois streets, on a preliminary charge of public indecency and indecent exposure, 6News' Jack Rinehart reported.
According to the probable cause affidavit, an Indianapolis police officer conducting an undercover vice investigation said Miller made eye contact with him before looking back at him and walking into the men's restroom.
The officer said he followed and found Miller inside an open stall with his pants down, masturbating.
The officer said Miller then engaged him in conversation, while continuing to touch himself, asking the officer if he wanted to go somewhere, if he wanted to touch his genitals and if he was married.
"Miller stated he was married too, and that it would be OK," according to the probable cause report.
The officer said he then arrested Miller.
