Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that the apprehension of Antwan Maurice Miller for the charges of attempted murder were as result of the following:
On the early morning hours (12:34 AM) of Sunday the 8th day of April 2012, Sheriff’s Deputies on routine patrol at an area in Greenville Florida known as the “Rec-Room” located at 1358 SW Grand Street were advised that a fight had started inside during a party. Sheriff’s Deputies entered the building to stop the fights and disperse the crowds. As persons were exiting the building, fights ensued outside and Officers on the scene requested additional Officers for assistance. Rashard Miller and Antwan Miller, both known by a Sheriff’s Deputy, were observed arguing and were separated and ordered to leave the area. Upon dispersing the crowd from the “Rec-Room” Deputies noted the crowd gathering again down the street at an area known as the “Boom-Boom Room” located at 1622 SW Grand street Greenville, Fl.
Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the new location of the large crowd and while again attempting to disperse the crowd, witnesses informed the Officers that Rashard Miller had been stabbed. Officers located Rashard Miller within the crowd and noted that he was bleeding profusely from his abdomen. Rashard Miller immediately, without prompting, identified the suspect to be Antwan Miller. Officers requested immediate back up and an ambulance for medical attention as additional and sporadic fighting within the crowd continued.
Upon arrival of additional Officers, persons failing to comply with lawful orders and continuing to fight, obstruct officers of their lawful duty and/or incite the riot were arrested. Three (3) persons were arrested for their involvement in the disturbance and are as follows:
Melvin Morris: B/M, DOB: 12/05/1988 of Greenville Florida. Charged with Affray
Javon Hampton, B/M, DOB: 05/06/1990 of Tallahassee Fl. Charged with Inciting a riot and Obstruction
Johnny Morris, B/M, DOB: 10/31/1990 of Greenville, Fl. Charged with inciting a riot.
While continuing to disperse crowds and apprehend those failing to comply, Officers on the scene were informed of a vehicle accident and soon learned the vehicle was occupied by the suspect of the stabbing, Antwan Miller. Witnesses inside the wrecked vehicle confirmed Antwans presence and explained that Antwan Miller was attempting to flee the scene en route to Tallahassee Florida when the accident occurred but he had been picked up by an unknown motorist before officers arrived at the accident scene.
Rashard Miller was stabilized and transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he was admitted with serious bodily injury. At the time of this updated release, Rashard Miller has since been released from the hospital and is recovering.
The investigation into the stabbing remained pending until presenting a probable cause affidavit and an arrest warrant for Antwan Maurice Miller was issued and executed.
Antwan Maurice Miller Posted bond and was released from the Madison County Jail on Wednesday the 25th day of April 2012.
This case remains pending additional investigations and possible arrest.
