Mack Miller was violently thrown into a metal detector, knocking it over after being kicked out of a meeting at Clark County Commission Office’s COVID-19 meeting
A GOP candidate for Nevada Lieutenant Governor was violently dragged out of a Las Vegas local government meeting and thrown through a metal detector by security after being kicked out of a COVID-19 meeting.
Cell phone footage shows the moment Mack Miller was thrown out of the Clark County Commission Office’s meeting.
The committee declared in a 5-2 decision that spreading COVID-19 misinformation is a public health crisis.
Protesters at the meeting claim that this is a violation of their First Amendment rights and is pushing only one side of the agenda.
Miller was ejected from the meeting after apparently joining the protests.
In a video shot by a citizen attending the meeting, Miller is seem being manhandled out of the meeting, before crashing into a metal detector which is lifted off the floor by the weight of the impact.
Several security guards grabbed onto the structure as it tipped over as Miller hit the floor.
Miller stays on the ground for several minutes and appears injured.
Security guards surrounded Miller as several people scream out: ‘Are you alright?’.
As citizens argue with security guards over whether or not to call an ambulance, Miller can be seen rolling side to side as he appeared to be in pain.
The man filming the interaction continuously screamed: ‘You guys need to put yourself under arrest.’
Miller hit the device with so much force, it knocked it over. Several guards had to catch the device before it crashed on top of them
Miller also filmed a video of himself inside the meeting.
It begins with him accusing a security guard wearing a tan uniform of shoving him while a group of people yelled behind him.
Although the video does not show the man shoving Miller, as he was out of frame, he does appear behind the woman who was could be seen shoulder to shoulder with the lieutenant governor hopeful.
Miller can be heard saying: ‘Hey, hey, wait a minute. What the hell?’ after claiming the officers had been ‘shoving and pushing’ people around.
‘Don’t push me, man,’ Miller said in a heated moment.
Miller claimed the Clark County Commissioners Office shut down the meeting and were telling people to leave.
The accused officer can be heard forcibly tell him to ‘go.’
Miller continued to film the officer, as well as his colleagues before demanding their names and badge numbers while the crowd chanted ‘Free our speech’ in the background.
Another officer pressed forward, asking him to ‘go to the exit, please,’
Miller raised his voice, screaming: ‘I don’t get shoved lightly. I’ve been court marshaled…[indecipherable]…and I’ll be damned if a security guard walks in front of me and people are going to shove me around.
‘You’re not going to shove me around anymore…[indecipherable]…and this god damn community…and there’s no way you’re going to stop me from protecting these people’s f***ing rights. Do you understand me?’
He continues: ‘I’m sick and tired of you f***ing [indecipherable] rights.’
Miller’s video cuts off as he landed on the floor.

This isn’t the first time Miller has caught himself up in controversy.
In 2018, the politician was convicted of deserting his Army comrades during the Iraq war in 2007, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Miller claimed he was on mandatory leave from a back injury, but his comrades said otherwise.
During his state senatorial run, his fellow soldiers claimed he deserted them in the desert and that he refused to take responsibility for his actions.
Court documents reported Miller was found guilty of desertion and sentenced to 18 months confinement, a demotion to private from private first-class, and a bad conduct discharge.
Miller reported appealed twice, unsuccessfully.
