A $10,000 bond was set Wednesday for a Sheridan man previously convicted of misdemeanor domestic battery after he was arrested Friday on a similar allegation.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Nicholas Miller, 25, with second offense third-degree domestic battery, a felony.

During the court hearing, Deputy Prosecutor Joe West said Friday evening, a sheriff’s deputy was sent to Lura Lane in response to a reported domestic incident.

West said the victim was able to free herself and ran down the road. Miller chased her but she was able to flag down the ambulance and Miller was taken into custody. The deputy also took photos of the injuries to the victim.

Miller was previously convicted of domestic battery in 2022. He was ordered to have no contact with the victim and told to come back to court March 19.
