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.

New on Fox Chief Larry Johnson of the Prairie View Police Department has released the body camera video involving the arrest of City Councilman Jonathan Miller.

Miller’s arrest went viral after he was seen being tased on video by one of two police officers Thursday night in the small college town.

Miller maintains the officers used excessive force when he questioned them why the they asked his fraternity brothers for their identification during a stop at his Hargest Drive home this week.

Miller was jailed overnight after being charged with interfering with police and resisting arrest.

The 26 year old, who’s also a Waller County teacher, was released on his own recognizance Friday morning.

The police body camera video was released early Saturday morning by the police department.

Despite what some national news outlets are reporting it appears the Sandra Bland autopsy is not botched and complete in Texas.

However, I have learned officials in Texas have asked the family and attorney in Illinois to preserve Bland’s body for other reasons.

I’m told that request for preservation was made because new information was revealed that wasn’t known during the autopsy.

The Harris County medical examiner issued the following statement to media outlets today.

Statement from Medical Examiner:

The autopsy examination and report for Sandra Bland was completed by the Harris County Medical Examiner, but is not a Harris County case. The death occurred in Waller County and is a Waller County case. The completed autopsy report has been provided to those agencies requesting the autopsy examination.

THE AME CHURCH TAKES A BOLD STAND ON THE DEATH OF SANDRA BLAND!

image

Again the African Methodist Episcopal Church grieves the death of one its members in a manner that sounds more alarms and raises more questions. The Council of Bishops and our connectional church extend our sympathy to the family of Sandra Bland, and lift them in prayer in their very great and painful loss. We also assure them of our support and commitment to seeking truth and justice in the loss of their loved one.

The African Methodist Episcopal Church demands an independent and thorough investigation into the arrest and death of Sandra Bland. To begin with there are questions which must be answered about the arrest and treatment of Ms. Bland. Second, there are many questions and few answers about how Ms. Bland died. Let us be clear, we are not satisfied with the explanation that she committed suicide. A young woman having just received a job at her alma mater, Prairie View University, something she was excited about and looked forward to, is not the attitude that would suggest suicide. Waller County, Texas has a questionable history when it comes to matters of race. This incident only increases that questionable history.

While the AME Church continues to mourn the loss of the Emanuel Nine in Charleston, South Carolina, we remain committed to ensuring that all Americans, regardless of race, are treated fairly and that justice prevails. Additionally, we remain determined to end the prejudicial manner in which many Blacks are treated by some in law enforcement. We wholeheartedly support good and unbiased law enforcement, but vehemently and determinedly oppose and seek to end biased law enforcement and all forms of discrimination.

The death of Sandra Bland, 28 years old, with a new job and promising future demands and requires that her treatment by police and the cause of her death be made known. We will remain vigilant and supportive of her family as they seek the same.
