Johnson says that after assaulting the man, Miller stole a motorcycle and drove deputies who spotted him in a high-speed chase.

The chase ended on Price Road in Hall County when Miller crashed the motorcycle near a church.

When deputies searched Miller after the crash, they found crushed pills they believed to be alprazolam and three packets of methamphetamine which also contained what they suspected to be fentanyl.


Georgia State Patrol is investigating the crash.

Miller was taken to Dawson County Jail and charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of tools for the commission of a felony, flight and escaping a police officer and drug DUI.
