ERLANGER, Ky. -- New details have emerged in the Wednesday arrest of Campbell County Schools Superintendent Glen Miller, accused of domestic violence against his wife.

Miller's daughter called 911 to report the 53-year-old Erlanger resident had attacked her mother, according to an Erlanger Police Department record. The daughter told a dispatcher Miller had "struck her mother in the face and neck."

The girl said she and her mother fled the scene of the attack; the pair then met an Erlanger police officer at a nearby church, the police report goes on to state.

The officer said he observed an injury to the mother's neck. When Erlanger police contacted Miller he told them the injury was the result of an accident. 

Police said neither the mother's injury nor statements from the mother and daughter were consistent with an accident. 

Miller was charged with domestic violence and booked into the Kenton County Detention Center shortly after midnight Thursday. He was released at about 2 p.m. the same day.

On Friday, the Campbell County Schools Board of Education issued a statement on Miller's arrest: 

"Superintendent Glen Miller was arrested yesterday on charges of domestic violence," Janis Winbigler, the board's chairwoman, announced in an email. "Due to these impending charges, the board of education has placed Mr. Miller on administrative leave."

Miller has been superintendent of Campbell County Schools since June 2011, after serving for about four years as superintendent of the Beechwood Independent School District.

Associate Superintendent Dr. Shelli Wilson was put in charge of the school district in Miller's absence, Winbigler said.

Miller's next court date is Oct. 19.
