PARTY AND A BROKEN NOSE - LOCAL COPS
It's happened again, all within a matter of months. A second member of the Coast Guard Academy's football team is in trouble with the law.
Cadet John K. Miller, 19, a sophomore and wide receiver on the top-rated football squad, was arrested recently at the Navy Lodge in Groton, Conn. after complaints were made to local cops about "loud and raucous noise."
It seems Miller and his pals were boozing it up and indifferent to the racket they were making. At one point, a civilian female who was in the room, claimed Smith prevented her from leaving and tried to force her to commit a sexual act best known to Monica Lewinsky.
Smith ended up with a bloodied and broken nose. We don't know anything about the size of the alleged "victim," but if she landed the punch, she must have plenty of mustard. Miller stands nearly 6' 3" tall and weighs over 200 pounds.
This is the second high-profile sex assault case for an Academy football player this year. Webster Smith, an African-American cadet, was charged with rape of a female cadet. In this case, the complainant is a civilian woman, so the Coast Guard is letting Miller attend classes and stay in Chase Hall on the school campus.
Some observers wonder if Miller is getting better treatment because he's Caucasian, but the brass, who wouldn't go on record with MilitaryCorruption.com, claim there is no double-standard.
Miller is scheduled to appear in New London, Conn. Superior Court early in January.
