Man charged with endangering officers
LANCASTER - A Stanford man is facing three counts of wanton endangerment as a result of an incident Monday in an apartment on South Campbell Street.
According to a report by Lancaster Police officer Allen Weston, when police responded to the 911 call, they found Billy O. Miller, 60, of 7926 Lancaster Road, Stanford, with a loaded gun. Weston stated that Miller "held officers in a circumstance that engaged in extreme value to human life and physical injury." The report states that Weston, officer Tim Royce and Garrard County Deputy Sheriff Bobby Amon wrestled Miller and took the weapon away.
Along with the wanton endangerment charges, Miller is charged with resisting arrest because he allegedly fought with officers when he was asked to drop the weapon.
