Indiana BMV chief arrested on indecency charge

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The commissioner of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles was arrested Wednesday after police said he exposed himself to a plainclothes officer in a public restroom in downtown Indianapolis.

Andrew J. Miller, 40, of Carmel, was arrested on a charge of public indecency about 1:30 p.m. at Claypool Court, a retail and hotel center near the Circle Centre mall, authorities said.

A police report said Miller, who was inside a stall with a 4-foot door, touched his genitals in front of an officer and made eye contact with the officer. The report said Miller also asked if the officer wanted to go somewhere.

The officer and his partner, who were investigating complaints of lewd activity in the area, arrested Miller as he left the restroom, police said.

Marion County Jail spokesman Julio Fernandez said he didn't know if Miller had an attorney. Miller was being booked into the jail Wednesday night.

BMV spokesman Dennis Rosebrough and Gov. Mitch Daniels' spokeswoman, Jane Jankowski, said they didn't have enough information to comment.

A message seeking comment was left Wednesday night at a telephone listing for Miller in Carmel.

Miller was appointed BMV commissioner in December 2008 and has overseen changes in driver's license requirements aimed at reducing identity theft.

    And these people want this to be called "normal" or an acceptable behavior. Could be worse, for sure, for him to be a member of NAMBLA.

    Wierdohs......

    Mitch Daniels wisely does not comment. LOL
  • curious
    I wonder what he has for his driver's license photo?
  • Bright idea
    Gee - how many politicians, appointees and ministers across the country have to be arrested and in the media before these high profile perverts realize that public restroom exposure/pickups are probably not smart career moves. Find your man candy more discreetly.
  • wow
    this is hilarious

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
