Punxsutawney man faces felony charges after fleeing from police with children in vehicle


PUNXSUTAWNEY— Two felonies, five misdemeanors, and a long list of traffic violations have been filed against a Punxsutawney man after he tried to get away from police with two young children in the vehicle.

According to court documents, a Punxsutawney Police officer tried to pull over a pickup truck driven by 26-year-old Caleb Miller due to an expired registration and inspection.

Miller allegedly sped up, turned off of Route 119, ignored several stop signs, and failed to use his turn signal while driving through back streets and alleys.

When Miller eventually stopped, the police officer reported that he noticed two young children in the vehicle.

Miller was immediately arrested on charges of child and reckless endangerment.

Further investigation discovered that Miller’s driver’s license had expired more than two years ago, and there was no proof of insurance for the pickup truck.

Following a preliminary hearing, Miller was released after posting $10,000 bail.

His case now moves to Jefferson County Court.
