Tunsil’s step-dad turns himself in, court date set

By John Davis

Lindsey Miller, the step father to Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, is now awaiting his day in court to deal with charges filed by Tunsil and his mother.

Miller, 53, was taken into custody by Micah East of the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department Tuesday morning. He was booked into Lafayette County Detention Center at 8:15. He was released on bond at 9:20 by Al Williams, the same company that provided bond to Tunsil on Friday afternoon.

Tunsil and Miller were allegedly involved in a physical altercation Thursday night, and a warrant was issued for Tunsil after Miller pressed charges. On Monday, Tunsil and his mother turned the tables. According to the jail docket, Miller faces a simple assault charge and two for domestic violence. The charges are misdemeanors.

Miller and Tunsil will both make an initial appearance in justice court. The next court date, according to sheriff’s officials, is set for July 14.
