Indiana motor vehicles commissioner Andrew Miller, a member of Gov. Mitch Daniels’s Republican administration, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on a public indecency charge, having been accused of soliciting sex from an undercover police officer in a men’s public restroom in downtown Indianapolis.
WTHR-TV reports on the arrest, which police said took place at 110 W. Washington St. around 1:30 p.m.
“Following complaints of lewd behavior, two plainclothes police officers were conducting an investigation at the men's public restroom at Claypool Court, a place with a notorious reputation for illegal sexual activity," said the news station.
The police report said that Miller, 40, exposed himself and twice asked the officer if he wanted to “touch it.” He also asked whether the police officer was married, and after being told yes, told the officer it would “be OK,” and that he was married too.
Miller, who has three children, faces up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine for the Class C misdemeanor, according to WTHR-TV.
