Lake Charles –
Early this morning around 1:20 a.m. the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a home on Highway 3059 in Lake Charles in reference to a disturbance.

When deputies entered they observed a family member holding Miller down on the floor. The complainant advised deputies that Miller was under the influence of drugs or alcohol and had struck a family member twice in the face with a closed fist, causing swelling to his left eye. Miller also threated the family member with a knife.
Deputies were also informed that when another family member attempted to intervene Miller attempted to stab him on the hand and in the back several times with a 8” serrated kitchen knife, leaving several cuts on his hand and back.
