A 35-year-old Queens man told cops he was the son of a city councilman when he was busted on a slew of charges, including resisting arrest, after hitting a car with his ATV, the Daily News has learned.
It turns out there’s some connection, although Councilman I. Daneek Miller is not suspect Jamel Miller’s dad. But after two days of questions, the politician’s spokesman refused to clearly identify the relationship.
Spokesman Ali Rasoulinejad at one point said the pol doesn’t even know who Jamel Miller is — despite the two appearing to have had the same address at one point.
A source, however, said the suspect apparently was adopted some years ago by someone close to Miller.
“The councilman doesn’t have a comment on it,” the spokesman said. “That’s not his son. The councilman has the greatest respect for our law enforcement officers.”
