Today in court, Miller offered no apologies.
“Everybody’s seen it on tape. That’s all I have to say,” Miller said as he entered the courtroom. “I did nothing wrong.”
He was held for trial.
“All the fans that were around me we all enjoyed our game, we all laughed and had an amazing time. The only thing I sat in a section with a guy that probably should’ve been at home watching the game. It’s a Pens game, that’s all I have to say,” Miller said.
An additional charge was added today against Miller. Police said the elevator operator was injured during the scuffle as well.
