BROWNSVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Tuesday arrested a former Haywood County Sheriff’s deputy after he was indicted by the Haywood County grand jury on Monday following a TBI investigation.
Charlie Miller, 45, of Brownsville, Tenn. was indicted on two counts of

He also paid cash to the female for sex.
The investigation was conducted with the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department. Miller was booked into the Haywood County Jail and released on a $10,000 bond.
Miller was fired from his position at the Haywood County Sheriff's Department after he was charged in the crime.
