TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - A man accused of leading deputies on a high-speed chase on Interstate 10 entered a plea Tuesday and will soon be transported back to Maryland to face charges in a shooting there.

David Miller appeared before a judge via Zoom for the plea hearing. Miller pleaded no contest to felony fleeing and eluding and was sentenced to time served in the Leon County Jail. As part of the plea deal, the state dropped the rest of the charges against him.

Miller led deputies on a 20-mile chase through Leon and Jefferson counties on April 29.

Court records say Miller topped speeds of more than 90 mph and was passing cars on both shoulders of I-10. Arrest papers say he ultimately bailed out and ran into the woods near Lloyd. He was captured in a nearby neighborhood after a short manhunt.

Court records show Miller is wanted in two counties in Maryland. U.S. Marshals say Miller is suspected in a shooting in Prince George’s County, Maryland, back on Feb. 12. Marshals say Miller is accused of showing up at his ex-girlfriend’s house with a rifle and opening fire.

Miller’s plea Tuesday paves the way for his return to Maryland to face attempted murder and assault charges. His public defender told the judge there is no set timetable right now, but authorities there will be notified that Miller is ready for transport as soon as possible.
