Off-Duty Hudson Valley Police Officer Arrested on Cocaine Possession, Leandra’s Law Charges
An off duty Hudson Valley police officer has been arrested and charged aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child and cocaine possession. The driving while intoxicated charge is also known as Leandra's Law because a child under 15 years old was in the car at the time.
According to a press release from the New York State Police Troop F barracks, Marc Miller of Nanuet was observed to be driving erratically on Route 17. Miller, an off duty police officer from Spring Valley, was apprehended in the Town of Chester after being located at a local gas station.
Miller allegedly appeared disoriented when confronted and a search of his car led to the discovery of cocaine. He is due in court on April 27 to answer the charges.
According to the New York State DMV, Leandra's Law makes any DWI a felony if a child under the age of 15 is in the vehicle.
