Prairie View police officer Michael Kelley was booked into the Waller County jail just after 9 pm Monday night.
He was arrested on a charge of official oppression after the October 2015 tasing and arrest of Prairie View City Councilman Jonathan Miller.
The Waller County grand jury returned the indictment Friday after members of the panel said officer Kelley had ‘no lawful reason’ to arrest Miller.
He was released on a $3,000 personal recognizance bond according to the Waller County Sheriff’s office.
Miller was cleared Monday of his initial arrest charges by the Waller County District Attorney’s office.
There’s no word yet when Kelley will make his first court appearance.
In the meantime, Chief Larry Johnson with the Prairie View Police Department says Kelley has been relieved of duty.
