Officer Hayden Miller Charged with Rape

Fayetteville police arrested Hayden Miller, 23, Thursday morning on a rape charge.  Miller was employed as a patrol deputy at the Washington County Sheriff's Office.  

According to investigators, in July of 2013, Miller sexually assaulted another man at his home.  The report was not made to police until Wednesday.  The police report states that the man said he fell asleep at Miller's home and woke up to Miller performing oral sex on him.  He also claimed that Miller grabbed his hand, and forced him to fondle Miller.

When questioned by police, the report states that Miller admitted to attending a party that night, and later going back to his home with the man.  Officers said Miller claims he went to sleep in his bed, and woke up with the man in bed with him.  According to the police report, Miller admitted that he then raped the man while he was sleeping.  He faces a felony charge of rape and is being held in the Washington County Jail.

According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, Miller was fired from his position Thursday, following his arrest.  The sheriff's office says he began working there in 2009 as a dispatcher and was assigned to the patrol division in 2012.  Miller is the third WCSO employee that has been terminated or resigned this month for misconduct.
