A Collinsville man was arrested Monday evening, Oct. 8, after he allegedly caused damaged to an Owasso home then fled police and resisted arrest.
The incident occurred around 8 p.m. at a residence in the Maple Glen development, where officers were dispatched. The suspect, identified as Charles Allen Miller, 32, reportedly broke several windows and a glass storm door at the home, according to the police report.
It states that upon arriving on scene, officers were told Miller had run into the backyard as the patrol cars approached the house. They searched the area and noticed a section of the wooden privacy fence missing, possibly allowing Miller to flee the yard.
After a short time, officers found him hiding in some tall grass in a nearby field. They also observed he had slurred speech and other indicators that he was under the influence of alcohol, the report shows.
As he was secured in handcuffs, Miller resisted the officers’ efforts to walk him from the field and physically resisted them as they tried to secure him in a patrol car, as noted in the report.
Witnesses told police Miller had been inside the house earlier socializing with other occupants, but he became belligerent and an argument ensued with the homeowner. Miler reportedly left, but then allegedly started vandalizing the home, causing an estimated $800 in damages.
Miller was transported to the Tulsa County Jail on counts of malicious injury to property, consuming/inhaling intoxicants in public, obstructing/interfering with a police officer and resisting arrest.
His bond was set at $500 and he had a court date of Monday, Oct. 15.
