Newton, New Jersey - 37-year-old police officer Jason R. Miller was recently arrested after he was caught on video exposing himself to motorists at traffic stops. According to court documents, Miller is being accused of doing this on at least five different occasions.
Many of these accusations are backed up by the police department's own dash-cam footage, which clearly shows officer Miller exposing himself to people at traffic stops.
Miller received multiple charges, including two counts of second-degree official misconduct, one count of third-degree pattern of official misconduct and the disorderly persons offense of lewdness.
Local police were tipped off about Miller's behavior on October 23rd, when a man who was harassed at a traffic stop sent an anonymous email to the police department.
According to the victim, he was pulled over by officer Miller after leaving a bar one night. Miller took his license and registration back to the police vehicle, but when he returned to bring back the paperwork, his pants were unzipped and his genitals were exposed.

These accusations began an investigation that uncovered a number of other victims, all with similar encounters. In some cases the victims reported that Miller called their attention to the fact that his zipper was down, while others were unfortunate enough to discover it on their own.
In some cases the victims were let go without tickets, even though they had expired paperwork, or were guilty of some small traffic violation. One man even admitted to Miller that he had been drinking, but he was allowed to drive away without a sobriety test after he was flashed by the officer.
After the arrest, the Newton Police Department immediately issued a press release, saying that “The allegations against Jason Miller represent a grave abuse of authority for which there is absolutely zero tolerance."
Despite video evidence of his guilt, Miller is strongly denying the accusations against him.
Speaking to reporters, Miller's attorney, Anthony Iacullo said that, “He is an excellent officer and has served Newton for over a decade. When this case is litigated in the court of law, we are confident that he will be exonerated as it relates to all charges.”
Miller is scheduled to appear in court on November 26th.
