Hendricks County Sheriff’s Deputy Rammed While Attempting to Apprehend Domestic Violence Suspect

AVON- On 08/15/2022 at approximately 5:33am, Hendricks County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the report of a woman who had been reportedly strangled on Greenbriar Dr. near Avon. 

While deputies responded, they were advised that the male suspect was leaving the residence in his truck. The suspect was later identified as Gary Edward Miller, 51, of Avon. 

Deputies located the suspect vehicle as it was leaving the neighborhood, and a short vehicle pursuit ensued.  As Miller fled from the neighborhood, other deputies were arriving in the area.  Miller rammed one of the arriving deputy’s vehicles in the driver’s side door with his truck.  That Deputy has been taken to an area hospital and is in stable condition.  Miller then fled on foot into a wooded area and was tracked by deputies and K9 units from the Danville and Plainfield Police Departments.  Minutes later, Miller was apprehended. A second deputy involved in the tracking of Miller was stung multiple times and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.  Miller sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. 

Criminal charges will be forthcoming as this investigation continues.
