Public Enemy No. 1 arrested wearing woman's wig, police say
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake Metro Gang Unit's Public Enemy No. 1 — who police say had previously led them on a 100 mph chase, attempted to run over one officer and also hit a patrol car — was arrested Thursday night after he was spotted wearing a woman's wig.
Christopher Jonn McMillan, 43, was arrested by Unified police who had been searching for him for several days. McMillan was charged Tuesday in 3rd District Court with attempted aggravated murder for allegedly swerving at a West Valley police officer who was setting up tire spikes in an attempt to stop McMillan who was fleeing from police.
McMillan later collided with a Unified police officer's patrol car during the same chase, but continued driving on, according to charging documents. He had allegedly absconded from probation after cutting off his ankle monitor and was awaiting trial in two other felony cases at the time of the incident.
Thursday night, officers observed Alisha Carol Nagel, 39, pick up McMillan in the Millcreek area near 3300 South, said Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal. Officers followed the Nissan to an Arby's parking lot near 1700 S. State where they conducted a felony stop.
"He complied and was taken into custody without incident," Hoyal said.
McMillan, who is bald, was wearing a woman's wig as a disguise and also was in possession of methamphetamine when he was arrested, Hoyal said.
Nagel was arrested for investigation of obstruction of justice for allegedly harboring a fugitive and parole violation. Hoyal did not know Friday the relationship between Nagel and McMillan or how long she had allegedly been harboring him.
In October, McMillan fired three rounds at his brother, striking him once in the foot after an argument between the two escalated, according to charging documents. The incident prompted a SWAT team to surround the apartment where the shooting occurred, but McMillan had left before they arrived.
He was also charged Nov. 4 in Summit County with theft, burglary and criminal mischief, accused of breaking into the Alaskan Fur Gallery in Park City and stealing 20 fur coats and a pair of boots.
