Waller County Grand Jury Indicts A Prairie View City Policeman

HOUSTON (AP) _ A Houston-area city councilman who was stunned with a Taser during a confrontation with police last October says he’s happy the officer who wrongly arrested him has been indicted and that attorneys are investigating if race played a role in the incident.

Prairie View City Councilman Jonathan Miller said Friday that the incident has altered his view of law enforcement.

Officer Michael Kelley was indicted last week on a misdemeanor count of official oppression after a grand jury concluded he unlawfully arrested Miller outside his apartment in Prairie View, northwest of Houston.

Jolanda Jones, one of Miller’s attorneys, said questions remain on whether race prompted the arrest. Miller is black and Kelley is white.

Kelley’s attorney, Roger Bridgwater, didn’t immediately return a call Friday.
