Borris Miles Back In The News

According to this article state representative Borris Miles-D Houston, may have stepped in it again. Apparently representative Miles crashed a party and acted like Don Corleone. Let's see, to make it brief, according to the complaint;

"He was saying things such as, 'I told you to get out of the insurance business. There ain't room in this town for the two of us. I'm going to come after you and take you down,' " (David) Harris said."

"During their confrontation, Harris said Miles proclaimed himself a "gangster" and "thug," before kissing Harris on both cheeks and then the mouth. Miles then pulled out a gun and placed it in Harris' hand, witnesses said.
"He was acting as if there was some sort of symbolic power struggle, grabbing him by the face," said Nathaniel Rido, who attended the party.
Rido said Miles also kissed his wife, Krysynthia, before leaving, an act that still angers him."

In case anyone has forgotten, Miles earned himself a little notoriety when he shot a burglar who was stealing copper from a home he was having built. This took place last July. While many people (myself included) didn't have a problem with him shooting a burglar, what we found a little hypocritical was that he voted against the castle doctrine law that was passed last year here in Texas. The way I see it, rep. Miles sounds like he has let power get to his head. If the December incident is true, then this man is a menace. Eventually he is going to have to talk to the news and give his side of the story. It will be interesting to hear it.

Jason, Boris Miles has had a complaint filed with the HCDA's office accusing him of groping and forcibly kissing a hotel employee. HPD has it on videotape, the DA's office is refusing to file charges and HPD refuses to return the tape so that the assaulted woman can file a civil action. It would appear that HPD is acting to cover the incident up.
