Quincy officer's assault charge dropped

Posted: Updated:

QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — A judge has dismissed charges against a veteran Quincy police captain who had been accused of assaulting his estranged, pregnant wife.

A Plymouth District Court judge on Thursday dismissed charges against Capt. Michael Miller at the request of prosecutors, who said there was "insufficient evidence to proceed" because his wife had refused to testify against him.

Quincy Chief Paul Keenan tells The Patriot Ledger (http://bit.ly/13EIS0K ) Miller will return to full duty as a detective captain Friday. His gun license will be reinstated and he'll get his weapon back.

The 49-year-old Miller has 25 years on the force and had been on paid administrative leave since he was charged July 6.

Plymouth police had alleged he pushed the door open as his wife stood behind it.
