Biloxi Police Chief John Miller Police Chief John Miller tells The Sun-Herald that 30-year-old Roger Beasley Jr. was stopped by officers last Wednesday on U.S. 90 in the city. Miller’s statement says Beasley jumped from his vehicle and ran.

According to police, Beasley didn’t notice marked police cars outside the Harrison County Law Enforcement Training Academy. He says Beasley ran into the building while training was in session — and arrested.
