HARRAH — A high school teacher who is the public address announcer for the Thunder was arrested on complaints of lewd acts with a child under 16, police reported Thursday.
James Allan Miller, 41, of Harrah, is accused of three counts of lewd or indecent acts with a child under 16, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Thursday in Oklahoma County. He was taken into custody while attending a meeting in Putnam City High School by Warr Acres Police Department, said Phil Stewart, a school resource officer for the Harrah School District.
A Thunder official said he has been suspended.
“Due to the allegations and criminal case against him and until further notice, Mr. Miller has been removed from his duties as Thunder PA announcer,” wrote Dan Mahoney, the Thunder's vice president of corporate communications, in an email.
Miller is the voice the Thunder audience hears during the game. He's a game night employee and is not employed full time, an official said.
Miller did not immediately return a phone call from The Oklahoman.
