State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said Miller tried to put Gray in a restraining technique called a "leg lace" and "held him down against his will until theBPD wagon arrived." Mosby said Miller and the other officers failed to establish probable cause for an arrest, as Gray had committed no crime.

At Miller's home in northern Baltimore County, the shades were open but the house was dark Friday.

Neighbor Chris Schloer said Miller moved into the house less than a year ago. He said he didn't know Miller worked in the city as a police officer. He said he met Miller briefly when Miller first moved in, but that, like most area residents, he seems to keep to himself.

"It was just a 'hi, bye' kind of thing," he said, adding that Miller struck him as a nice guy.

Miller faces five misdemeanor charges. Two assault charges carry a possible combined jail term of 20 years. He also faces two misconduct-in-office charges and a count of false imprisonment. Those charges do not carry maximum jail terms and can result in probation.

Neither Miller nor any of his relatives could be reached for comment.
