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. The east side does have potential...and I have always thought Washington Scare should become an outlet mall. Anyone remember how popular Eastgate was? Well, Indy has no outlet malls, we have to go to Edinburgh for the deep discounts and I don't understand why. Jim is right. We need a few good eastsiders interested in actually making some noise and trying to change the commerce, culture and stereotypes of the East side. Irvington is very progressive and making great strides, why can't the far east side ride on their coat tails to make some changes?

  2. Boston.com has an article from 2010 where they talk about how Interactions moved to Massachusetts in the year prior. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/innoeco/2010/07/interactions_banks_63_million.html The article includes a link back to that Inside Indiana Business press release I linked to earlier, snarkily noting, "Guess this 2006 plan to create 200-plus new jobs in Indiana didn't exactly work out."

  3. I live on the east side and I have read all your comments. a local paper just did an article on Washington square mall with just as many comments and concerns. I am not sure if they are still around, but there was an east side coalition with good intentions to do good things on the east side. And there is a facebook post that called my eastside indy with many old members of the eastside who voice concerns about the east side of the city. We need to come together and not just complain and moan, but come up with actual concrete solutions, because what Dal said is very very true- the eastside could be a goldmine in the right hands. But if anyone is going damn, and change things, it is us eastside residents

  4. Please go back re-read your economics text book and the fine print on the February 2014 CBO report. A minimum wage increase has never resulted in a net job loss...

  5. The GOP at the Statehouse is more interested in PR to keep their majority, than using it to get anything good actually done. The State continues its downward spiral.
