Another sports announcer wound up on the police blotter Saturday when Gary Miller, who was covering the Oriole-Indian series for ESPN, was arrested and charged with urinating out the window of a Cleveland nightclub onto off-duty police officers.
Miller, 40, of Branford, Conn., was arrested at about 1:30 a.m. at The Basement, a popular dance club in Cleveland's Flats neighborhood. He was charged with public indecency, aggravated disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, police Sgt. Mark Hastings told the Associated Press.
Police confiscated what was described as "drug paraphernalia" and were testing residue before issuing further charges, Hastings said. Miller, a host for ESPN's "Baseball Tonight," was released Saturday afternoon pending the outcome of tests.
ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys said Miller went back to Connecticut to meet with network officials. "We have spoken briefly to Gary, whose view of what took place differs from what has been reported," Soltys said. "We have no further comment at this time."
