CEDAR FALLS — Cedar Falls City Council member Mark Miller has been accused of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

In the early hours of June 2, Miller was pulled over near the 1100 block of West 18th Street.

A breath test done after Miller was arrested showed a blood alcohol level of .215, according to the police report. He refused a preliminary breath test and stopped midway through a field sobriety test, the report stated.

The officer smelled a strong odor of alcohol and wrote that Miller’s eyes were bloodshot and watery, and Miller admitted to drinking a short time before the stop, the report said.

Miller was arrested and transported to the University of Northern Iowa Police Department.

“I’m fully willing to deal with the consequences of it,” Miller said.

Miller has represented the First Ward in the Cedar Falls City Council since Jan. 1, 2014.

“I hope the council and the rest of the community will support me, and I hope I have the opportunity to stay on the council and continue doing what I’m doing,” he said.
