Prosecutors Decline to Pursue Charges Against Loudoun Deputy

A Loudoun deputy has returned to work after two criminal summonses obtained by a citizen against him were dismissed in Loudoun County General District Court.

On Aug. 24, a resident appeared before a Loudoun County magistrate and obtained the summonses for simple assault and disorderly conduct against Deputy Eric Miller stemming from an incident in January. Miller was placed on paid administrative leave.

After a review of the case by the Commonwealth’s Attorney Office, prosecutors declined to pursue the charges, which were formally dropped from the court’s docket Sept. 13.

Miller returned to duty last week.
