Man charged in attack on Wyandotte deputy

A man is charged with two felony counts of aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer for an incident last week in which he allegedly rammed his vehicle in reverse into the patrol vehicle of a Wyandotte County Sheriff’s deputy.

Anthony D. Miller, residence unknown, is also charged with one felony count of fleeing and eluding, two felony counts of criminal damage to property and one misdemeanor count of theft. He is in the Wyandotte County jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.

Miller is suspected of ramming the deputy’s vehicle Thursday after being stopped for having an expired license plate near 12th Street and Troup Avenue. Miller then allegedly fled, also striking a Kansas City, Kan., police officer’s vehicle.

The deputy was treated at a hospital for neck and back pain and released.

Miller was arrested hours later after an anonymous tip.
