Rhode Island State Representative Arrested After Being Accused of Keying Trump Supporter’s Car

After reportedly damaging a car with an “anti-Biden” sticker parked in an outdoor retail area, local police in Rhode Island last week arrested and charged a Democrat state senator with vandalism and deliberate harm to property.

State Senator Joshua Miller (D) was allegedly arrested on Thursday by Cranston Police after being charged with “keying” an SUV in the Garden City Center parking lot at about 3:30 p.m.

After questioning the 69-year-old politician about allegedly damaging their car, the car’s owner said they spotted a man standing next to it holding a keychain and clutching a single key before swiftly walking away.

They then recognized the individual to the police.

A vehicle with a “Re-elect Senator Josh Miller” bumper sticker was parked close to the unnamed victim’s, who was apparently a fan of former President Donald Trump.

The victim looked up Miller online after the event and recognized him as the culprit.

Miller first refuted the charge to both the police and the victim.

Miller has represented Cranston and Providence since 2006.

Miller seemed to confess the crime to police when an officer informed him that they had footage of the incident when they arrived at his home.

The senator offered to travel to the police station, where he was arrested and charged with malicious property damage and vandalism.

He was later freed on a $1,000 personal recognizance.
