Bertie County Man Leads Police On High Speed Chase

A man is out of jail after getting arrested for leading lawmen on a high speed chase, but he might have trouble getting around. His car was impounded under the new law called "run and you're done."

Forty-seven-year-old David Miller was arrested in Bertie county for running from authorities. The Roanoke-Chowan News Herald says speeds reached 70 miles as troopers chased miller Friday when he didn't stop for a drivers license checkpoint in Connarista.

Miller's charges include felony speed to elude arrest, and a new state law means his vehicle gets confiscated by law enforcement. Miller is also charged with DWI.

    I have known this man and his family for a very long time and they are some of the sweetest people. We all make mistakes, if we didn't make them, we wouldn't be human. Yes, this was a conscious mistake but still, conscious mistakes or not, we all make them. This man has had his ups and downs and is not perfect nor will he ever be. Instead of running his name in the ground how about let's lift his name up and say a little prayer for him and his family.

    My party vehicle is a whopping piece of junk! Keep it running just so I need not be concerned with such technicalities. Hopefully, this law won't be abused by the corrupt cops out there and will help reduce dangerous chases.

    Unfortunately, this punishes families more than the bad guy. The bank owns MOST cars, so the family loses a car but still has to pay it off - for many families this is a ticket straight to bankruptcy. Sad that wives and kids again are on the losing end.

    wow I cant believe the cold reponses from viewers of this story. I've known the Millers for years and his wife is so sweet. I wish people would watch their comments as this man has childern that may be reading the comments. I'm so glad that I serve a loving and forgiving God. I'm thankful no one was hurt during this and I'm sure hope that Mr. Miller can get his life but on track. my prayers to his wife and kids.

    So what did we get? Betting it was a drunk mobile, 4 miss matched tires, hasn't been washed in five years. Two hubcaps missing. Several dents from that telephone pole or hydrant he hit on the way home drunk many nights. Oil hasn't been changed in years. Betting on an 87 buick.

    Instead of running Mr. Miller down for the mistakes he has made-how about lift him and his family up in prayer! This has to be tuff enough on them all, he now has to deal with the charges and face his punishment, but he also has to answer to God-NOT to the rest of us. Only the judge and God can judge Mr. Miller.
