Gary Miller arrested for high-speed chase in Florida
Just after midnight on July 19, a deputy spotted a Nissan Murano traveling at a high rate of speed on Interstate 75 in Naples, according to the arrest report. The deputy’s radar showed the driver was speeding at 117 miles per hour in a 70 miles per hour zone, authorities said.
The deputy tried to pulled the driver over, but they refused to stop — the deputy noted in the driver’s arrest report that he was traveling over 120 miles per hour in an effort to catch up to the speeder.
The driver — later identified as 22-year-old Gary Miller — allegedly pulled off the highway on the next exit and continued driving away from the deputy.
“It was apparent to me that the driver was attempting to flee from a marked patrol vehicle,” the deputy wrote in Miller’s arrest report.
Eventually, Miller allegedly pulled into community, but it was gated, so he got stuck and the deputy was able to block him in the community’s entrance.
Miller “immediately opened the driver’s door” and “exited the vehicle with his hands in the air,” according to his arrest report.
