A city councilman in San Bernardino County was arrested Wednesday for allegedly using his position and influence to benefit a business he operated with his wife, officials said.

The arrest warrant for Grand Terrace Councilman Jim Miller was for "conflict of interest," and his bail was set at $25,000, according to a statement from the county district attorney's office.

"The allegations are that, over the last two years, Councilman Miller repeatedly voted for city expenditures that benefited a newspaper and printing business operated by Miller and his wife," the statement read.

Miller, who is an official with the county Real Estate Services Department, could not be reached for comment.
