Miller Appears in Court

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - Ten days after a near two hour standoff with law enforcement, a Great Falls man finally makes an initial appearance in court after spending last week hospitalized from what police believe was a self-inflicted gun-shot wound.

Ernest Miller is facing felony charges of attempted deliberate homicide, criminal endangerment, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted person.  
It was on May 9th that police responded to reports of a burglary that was overheard by a Cascade County Sheriff's Deputy. According to court documents, the deputy saw Miller and a foot chase ensued until Miller went into a trailer which a friend was living in. While on the deck of the mobile home, Miller fired three shots at the deputy before taking shelter in the trailer.
Back-up eventually came and Miller reportedly called his sister to tell her he had been surrounded, before eventually surrendering to police after about a 2 hour stand-off.  
Police records say Miller is currently on probation for felony theft out of Lewis and Clark County. Bail was set at $250,000.
