Dallas Co Sheriff Deputy Charged with punching wife

FORNEY, Texas — A Dallas County Sheriff’s department deputy remains in the Kaufman County jail this morning with allegations of punching his wife.

Jason Glenn Miller of Forney, is being held on a $10,000 bond and charged with assault causing bodily injury to a family member.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, the suspect kicked in the front door of his house to gain access early Wednesday morning after being locked out by his wife. An argument continued from inside the house to the driveway. After the argument escalated, Miller struck his wife several times “with a closed fist in her eye.”

Miller left the scene prior to the arrival of Kaufman County deputies. Later, a warrant was signed by Kaufman County Justice of the Peace Johnny Adams.

Officials discovered that Miller had reported to work in Dallas County where he was arrested and transported to the Kaufman County Jail where he will remain until posting bail.

According to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office, Miller has been an officer for nearly 20 years, starting with the department in November of 1999. He works as warrant execution investigator and a member of the department’s tactical team.

Raul Reyna, Dallas County Sheriff’s Office public information officer, told inForney.com that an internal affairs investigation has been started and that Miller’s "termination is pending."

Neighbors and law enforcement sources confirmed that there have been numerous calls to law enforcement in the past for family and domestic violence issues at the home in the Windmill Farms neighborhood.

This is a developing story.
