Jason Miller found himself on the wrong side of the law once again earlier this month. When police came to serve an arrest warrant, Miller retreated into his home and refused to cooperate with police, leading to a three hour standoff.

During the standoff, Miller live tweeted the situation, making vague claims about the charges against him (which were related to stalking, domestic violence and violation of a court order) and drew comparisons between himself and black men who fear for their lives during encounters with the police, something that seems to make little sense when police arrived with an arrest warrant and attempted to take him into custody through standard means.

Now, it's being reported that Miller is pleading not guilty to charges of resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer, both related to the standoff:

It should be noted that the only charges mentioned here are the ones related to the standoff and not the charges that led to the arrest warrant in the first place.
