LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Officials say a 15-year-old girl was walking to a friend's house when she noticed Carl Miller, 51, following her in a white van.
We are told the girl went back to her home, and Miller knocked on the door. He told the girl his van was stuck and asked for a car jack.
Officials say when the girl refused to help Miller, he offered her drugs and began making sexual comments; he then grabbed her arm, trying to force her to go with him.
Authorities say the girl ran to a neighbor's house for help. Miller was later found intoxicated at a gas station.
He is charged with attempted abduction of a minor.
Miller previously served ten years in prison on robbery and murder charges.
