Congratulations to Trooper Ben Miller for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for July 2011.

On July 18, 2011, Trooper Miller assisted the Plant City Police attempting to stop a man from jumping off the Fritzke Bridge. When the subject was momentarily distracted by a noise and looked towards the sound; Miller saw an opportunity and grabbed the subject pulling him from the edge of the bridge and then taking him into custody.

The suspect was transported to South Florida Baptist Hospital where he was admitted under the Baker Act. Upon leaving the hospital, the subject thanked Trooper Miller for saving his life.

Trooper Miller is to be commended for his actions during this incident and his demonstrated commitment to the people of Florida.
