CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. - Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested an inmate for attempting to escape from the Charlotte County Jail Thursday around 4:30 p.m.
Jourdan Nicole Miller, 20, Deep Creek, was booked into the jail Thursday for Battery on her mother at their home. Miller was brought into the intake area and being processed. She began to walk around intake and was told by a staff member to remain where she was. Miller began looking for a way out of the jail and then jumped over a desk. She was unable to find an exit and ran into and locked herself in a bathroom. Miller was not able to make it beyond the secure and contained area due to CCSO Jail security within the new facility. She never got out of the secured area and no breach of security was made.
Detectives said deputies gave numerous verbal commands to Miller to come out of the bathroom; she refused. A deputy opened the door with his key and discovered Miller had a can of disinfectant spray in her hand. She pointed it at deputies and sprayed one officer directly in the eyes. As jail deputies entered, some were kicked as they struggled with Miller to gain control; she continued to resist. The spray can was taken from her; she still resisted, and was then drive stunned with a taser; handcuffed, and officers gained control.
Miller was charged with Attempted Escape, Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, and Resisting an Officer With Violence. She remains in jail on no bond.
