[UPDATE] Madison County, FL -- April 26, 2012 --

Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that the apprehension of Antwan Maurice Miller for the charges of attempted murder were as result of the following:

On the early morning hours (12:34 AM) of Sunday the 8th day of April 2012, Sheriff’s Deputies on routine patrol at an area in Greenville Florida known as the “Rec-Room” located at 1358 SW Grand Street were advised that a fight had started inside during a party. Sheriff’s
Deputies entered the building to stop the fights and disperse the crowds. As persons were exiting the building, fights ensued outside and Officers on the scene requested additional Officers for assistance. Rashard Miller and Antwan Miller, both known by a Sheriff’s Deputy, were observed arguing and were separated and ordered to leave the area. Upon dispersing the crowd from the “Rec-Room” Deputies noted the crowd gathering again down the street at an area known as the “Boom-Boom Room” located at 1622 SW Grand street Greenville, Fl.

Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the new location of the large crowd and while again attempting to disperse the crowd, witnesses informed the Officers that Rashard Miller had been stabbed. Officers located Rashard Miller within the crowd and noted that he was bleeding profusely from his abdomen. Rashard Miller immediately, without prompting, identified the suspect to be Antwan Miller. Officers requested immediate back up and an ambulance for medical attention as additional and sporadic fighting within the crowd continued.

Upon arrival of additional Officers, persons failing to comply with lawful orders and continuing to fight, obstruct officers of their lawful duty and/or incite the riot were arrested. Three (3) persons were arrested for their involvement in the disturbance and are as follows:

Melvin Morris: B/M, DOB: 12/05/1988 of Greenville Florida. Charged with Affray

Javon Hampton, B/M, DOB: 05/06/1990 of Tallahassee Fl. Charged with Inciting a riot and Obstruction

Johnny Morris, B/M, DOB: 10/31/1990 of Greenville, Fl. Charged with inciting a riot.

While continuing to disperse crowds and apprehend those failing to comply, Officers on the scene were informed of a vehicle accident and soon learned the vehicle was occupied by the suspect of the stabbing, Antwan Miller. Witnesses inside the wrecked vehicle confirmed Antwans presence and explained that Antwan Miller was attempting to flee the scene en route to Tallahassee Florida when the accident occurred but he had been picked up by an unknown motorist before officers arrived at the accident scene.

Rashard Miller was stabilized and transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he was admitted with serious bodily injury. At the time of this updated release, Rashard Miller has since been released from the hospital and is recovering.

The investigation into the stabbing remained pending until presenting a probable cause affidavit and an arrest warrant for Antwan Maurice Miller was issued and executed.

Antwan Maurice Miller Posted bond and was released from the Madison County Jail on Wednesday the 25th day of April 2012.

This case remains pending additional investigations and possible arrest.

    You racist idiots souund ignorant and undeducated.Just because you read of few sentences that are related to this incident, you believe you are well-informed and can judge an individual or the black community. Yes, black on black crime is a problem but racism cont. to exist in this country but if you've never had to deal w/ racial profiling or discrimination, what can you say? He was able to bond out d/t wrong info. being listed in the warrant and shady police work that favors the victim but not witness accounts of what actually occured.

    It's too bad this guy is already back out on the street! The judge let him out on bond the very next day. If you ask me, this is a problem.

        First of all when you write a sentence you should capitalize the first word in said sentence, and why is spelled like this, not y. So now that we have established that, and also that you seem to be uneducated then we can move on to something more pressing. One, I am not a sexual predator and I find it funny that you would simply say something like that as a way to help your cause in an argument.Two, as soon as this upstanding member of the community was let out on bond he began threatening others lives. Accordingly is bond was revoked immediatly and Police had to go arrest him again. I guess your argument is now mute. Maybe you should concetrate more on your sexual predators that defending this idiot.

    These "front pages" covered with young blacks males committing crimes have gotten ridiculous! And we're talking murders and shootings. Come on, people - it's not racism. Why are not members of the black community, especially the so-called leaders and govt. officials addressing this problem. It IS definitely a problem, and it doesn't do any good to pretend it's not a problem or that it's due to racism. Let's be honest - something needs to be done.

        I pity you and your ignorance but just so you know our economy was "tanking" prior to the election of Pres. Obama, go check the facts for unemployment rates, gas prices, stock market, and the national debt so maybe you can come back with a more educated and factual response. Just to let you know 70% of people on welfare are White, so hardworking individuals like myself,making 65,000/yr pay taxes for individuals like yourself and more than likely your family members to get your food stamps, Medicaid, etc.

    How long has the U.S. Marshal's office been involved with our local law enforcement? It sure seems to be working. Good job on a lot of recent cases. Round 'em up!
