WARREN -- A city police officer placed in Mahoning County Jail last month for failing to comply with terms of his probation was fired on Wednesday.

Officer Jeffrey Miller was arrested on a Nov. 13 bench warrant after he failed to comply with a March 20 court order, which required him to attend a 28-day alcohol program and undergo alcohol/drug counseling.

Miller was fired as a result of a series of incidents that led to three arrests since October 2010.

Miller was arrested on charges of domestic violence on Nov. 17, 2010. A Niles Municipal Court judge dismissed those charges.

He was arrested a second time on Sept. 22, 2011, in Boardman, by the Ohio State Patrol with operating a motorized vehicle while impaired.

In September 2011, Miller was charged with being absent without leave for missing work between Sept. 24 and Sept. 27, 2011.

Miller was arrested on Nov 15, at the Boardman court on a failure to appear/probation violation charge.

``This last incident makes it clear that you have no respect for your Oath of Office or the laws you swore to uphold,'' Police Chief Timothy Bowers wrote in a letter presented to Miller on Wednesday.

Miller began working as a Warren police officer in November 1995.
