A northeastern north Dakota lawmaker says he does not plan to resign despite calls to do so over his recent arrest on alcohol-related driving charges. State senator joe miller says he signed up for a four year term and he will fulfill that pledge. The 30-year old park river (nd) republican says he hopes to rise above the situation and not succumb to it. Miller was pulled over during the early morning hours of june 21st for speeding. His blood-alcohol content was over the legal limit. Miller says a passenger in his car was cited for drug paraphernalia but he declined to talk about it saying “it’s not my thing.” Although he doesn’t believe he has an alcohol problem miller says he plans to turn over a new leaf and be a “better person” when all is said and done. Miller discussed the charges as a guest on knox's Jarrod thomas program.
