COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
A Columbia man is charged with several crimes after police say he ran inside a business naked on Bernadette Dr. on Wednesday.
A Boone County prosecutor has charged Justin Miller, 37, with rape or attempted rape, child molestation, assault, sexual abuse, sexual misconduct, assault and resisting arrest.
Employees at Culver's, Taco bell and Petro-Mart saw the incident happen.
An employee at Culver's said Miller had no shirt on prior to coming to the restaurant. He then took his pants off outside the door and ran around inside the restaurant.
A customer threw his clothes at him and pushed him out the door.
Employees say Miller came back to Culver's again and then ran across Bernadette Dr. to Petro-Mart where he was arrested.
Culver's did decide to close an hour early Wednesday night due to the incident and to keep customers safe.
One man said his son was in the Taco Bell drive-thru on Bernadette Dr. Wednesday night and says Miller was trying to get into his son's vehicle and was banging on the doors.
Miller was not armed.
This isn't the first time Miller has been in trouble. He's been in and out and prison fives time over the past 15 years.
Between 2006 and 2013 Miller was arrested various times for gun and drug-related charges.
In 2020, he was arrested again and charged in three different cases on similar gun and drug crimes. He had a warrant out for his arrest for those charges after failing to appear in court in December.
He is currently being held without bond in the Boone County Jail.
