Authorities called Miller and asked if he suffered from mental illness, and after detecting slurring in Miller’s voice, if he had been drinking. Miller said he had “one glass of red wine” and said he had no mental illness.
"This is the first time I've ever made a call like this before. I am worried for everyone on that train. Someone has to check that lady out," Miller said, according to the release.
Investigators later determined that Miller was on Amtrak train 2258, not 2256. Neither train had any explosive devices or materials on board.
Miller is charged with intentionally conveying to law enforcement false information about an explosive device on a train. The charge has a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
Miller was released on $100,000 bond after appearing in court Tuesday. He has not commented on the charges or the March indecent.
