Underage son crashes mom’s Lexus while drunk joyriding

20-year-old Justin Miller was charged with underage driving while impaired, leaving the scene of an accident, and joyriding when he crashed his mom’s Lexus into a building after drinking.

On October 14th, Highway Patrol Trooper Wallace was dispatched to a crash at 3604 Drake Road. A deputy with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department was on scene and stated that the driver was down the road at his residence. Through investigation, it was determined that the driver, later identified as Justin Miller, had run off the roadway through a fence and into a building at a cell phone tower. When officers searched the vehicle, the driver’s seat belt was locked at the B Pillar establishing that he was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash. Upon arrival at Justin’s residence, 3724 Coves Way, he was being treated for injuries endured during the incident, with lacerations to his ear and back.

Trooper Wallace reported the smell of an alcoholic beverage coming from him as he spoke with him. Justin performed five field sobriety tasks, three standard and two non-standard, to which he did poorly on three of the five. An NCIC check determined that he had a suspended license with an active date of July 27th.

Justin’s mother, Casi Miller, stated that he had walked up to the residence bloody and carrying her purse which was also bloody. The Lexus involved in the crash was registered to Casi and she reported that she did not give Justin permission to drive it. She advised that when she noticed that he had left in the vehicle she texted and called him telling him to bring the vehicle back.

Justin Miller was arrested and charged with underage driving while impaired, driving on a suspended license, not wearing a seatbelt, violation of implied consent law, leaving the scene of an accident, joyriding, and failure to exercise due care. He was released on a $2,500 bond.
