Posted: Updated:

According to court records, Cedar Falls City Council member Mark Miller was arrested on charges of operating while under the influence.

Court records show Miller was arrested by the University of Northern Iowa Public Safety Department on Saturday, June 2nd.

According to the criminal complaint, Miller was driving in the 1100 block of W18th Street when he was pulled over. Police say they could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from Miller, and his eyes were bloodshot and watery. The complaint says Miller admitted to drinking a short time prior to the stop and was then asked to perform a field sobriety test. Miller stopped halfway through the test and was offered but refused a preliminary breath test. 

Miller was placed under arrest for his first OWI offense. When he was taken to the UNI Police Department, he consented to a breath test, which indicated a BAC of .215. Miller was then taken to the Black Hawk County Jail. 

Miller is the current Ward-1 representative and has served on the council since 2014.

According to Miller's city bio, he attended both UNI and Hawkeye Community College prior to starting his own residential remodeling business in 2006.
