A county commissioner who was caught speeding under the influence of alcohol, told police that the chicken nuggets made him do it, according to police in Michigan.

Montcalm County police said that they have arrested 40-year-old Jeremy Miller, after being accused of speeding in a residential area under the influence of alcohol.

Miller, who was elected as the Montcalm County commissioner, was charged with driving under the influence. He was booked into the Montcalm County Jail, and released after posting bail.

According to the police investigation, an officer observed Miller’s SUV speeding. He was driving 58 miles per hour in a 30 miles per hour zone.

The officer ordered Miller to stop, and when he asked him why he was speeding, the commissioner said it was because of “the damn chicken nuggets.”

The officer then noticed a strong odor of alcohol. Miller failed several field sobriety tests, and a breathalyzer showed his blood alcohol content level was at 0.14.

Miller, who is also the vice-chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee, apologized to his wife, family and friends.
