Miller was arrested in Colonie later that evening.

It's unclear what exactly set off the altercation between Miller and his co-worker, but one can only imagine what would've caused a reaction leading to the throwing of both furniture, and scalding hot sauce.

Statistically speaking, New Year's Eve is one of the holidays most associated with high crime rates. With the alcohol flowing, emotions can run high, and if they boil over, issues can arise.

Though it's not mentioned in the report, it does not appear that alcohol was involved in the crime that took place at Taco Bell. That being said, when the clock approaches midnight on New Year's Eve, after a long night of feeding the drunken members of your community, one can imagine patience may wear a bit thin from time to time.
