Porn star and Iraq war vet Sergeant Miles blasts 'political witch hunt' after his Capitol riot arrest for 'shoving cops'

A PORN star and Iraq war veteran has blasted what he calls a "political witch hunt" after his arrest over the Capitol riot.

Steven Miles – known by his stage name Sergeant Miles – told The Sun he is innocent after he was accused of shoving and trying to punch police officers.


Adult film star Miles, 39, was arrested at his home in Zephyrhills, Florida on Tuesday.

He traveled to Washington DC on January 6 and joined the mob who attacked the Capitol that day, according to court documents.

Miles is now facing charges of assaulting, resisting or impeding officers, civil disorder and engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds with a dangerous weapon.

The case is being prosecuted in Washington, D.C., federal court.

According to court documents, Miles joined with others objecting to Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory over Donald Trump.

According to a criminal complaint, Miles marched in a group to the Capitol, where he and other rioters fought with police officers who were protecting the Capitol.

Miles shoved and attempted to punch police officers, prosecutors said.

He then made his way up a staircase, smashed a plank of wood into a window and entered the building through that broken window, officials said.

The war veteran briefly walked through the building and then left through a door, according the documents.

Online court records didn’t list a defense attorney for Miles.
