Before Miller entered the jail, he was asked if he had anything illegal on his person, to which he said, “no,” according to the report.

However, as he was being booked and changing into a jail uniform, a corrections officer found a baggie containing what was believed to be meth taped around Miller’s genitalia.

The substance weighed about 1.5 grams and tested positive for meth, according to police.
