A Battle Creek man has been bound over for trial in connection to a high speed chase through Calhoun and Branch Counties.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that the case was laid out against 31-year-old Joshua Miller during a preliminary examination in Calhoun County Court Monday. During testimony, officers said that Miller was being sought for allegedly assaulting his former girlfriend, and for forcing her to stay in her apartment.

When police went to find him at a hotel near Beckley Rd. in Battle Creek February 12, he sped off and led police on a chase that reached speeds of 130mph before a tire on the suspect vehicle flattened near Coldwater. Miller was arrested, and it was determined that the vehicle he had been driving had been stolen the day before from N. Wabash Ave.

Miller is charged with fleeing police, auto theft, assault by strangulation and unlawful imprisonment. If convicted, he could get up to 15 years in prison. No trial date has been set just yet.
