PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla.-- Former South Palm Beach Mayor Martin Millar is once again in trouble with the law.
Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies pulled him over Tuesday night. He's accused of DUI and resisting without violence.
According to a probable cause affidavit, a deputy clocked Millar driving 80 mph in a 45 mph zone. The deputy said Millar could not stay in his lane and would unexpectedly slow down then speed up.
After a traffic stop deputies say Millar was extremely uncooperative. They say he tried prevent them from placing him into a patrol vehicle.
Later, after he was placed in the back of the cruiser, deputies say Millar began thrashing around, kicking his legs and banging his head which resulted in a bloody mouth and scratches on his forehead and cheek.
He was transported to a hospital for treatment.
There he smeared blood on the walls and over medical equipment to try and agitate the nursing staff and also urinated on the floor and later in his pants, according to the affidavit.
Deputies eventually transported Millar to the Palm Beach County Jail where they say he refused to give any breath samples.
Last September Millar was arrested on aggravated battery charges after a dispute over a woman at a Palm Beach Gardens club, according to an arrest report.
At that time he was released on his own recognizance.
Millar resigned as South Palm Beach's mayor on Dec. 9, 2010.
