Miller to serve time for chase

The man who led local law enforcement on a chase through Union earlier this year pled guilty to crimes associated with the incident Monday.

Remington Miller, 26, of rural La Grande, entered guilty pleas on charges of fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, recklessly endangering another person, driving under the influence of intoxicants, harassment and failure to register as a sex offender. The charges stem from a reported domestic dispute and subsequent vehicle pursuit Jan. 21.

Judge Brian Dretke on Monday sentenced Miller to a total of 242 days in the custody of the Union County Correctional Facility. Miller has been in custody since he was arrested Jan. 21 and may receive credit for time served. He was also sentenced to two years bench probation and more than $5,000 in fines. The conviction of failure to report as a sex offender comes with 180 days in custody of the jail, to run consecutive to the other charges. It also carries a year of supervised probation.

The incident led local law enforcement on a chase through Union. Ultimately, a Union County Sheriff’s deputy performed a pursuit intervention technique with his vehicle. Miller was headed back toward Union and school had just been released. The PIT maneuver caused Miller’s vehicle to leave the highway and come to rest with obvious damage. Miller was not injured in the crash.
