Idaho Falls Police arrested 38-year-old Christopher J. Miller for aggravated assault after he dangled a child over an eighth-floor balcony ledge Tuesday night.

Miller of Plymouth, Ind., was booked into the Bonneville County Jail.

According to reports, officers responded to the Hotel on the Falls, 475 River Parkway, around 10 p.m. for a report of Miller, who was intoxicated, dangling his seven-year-old daughter over a balcony ledge and threatened to drop her from the eighth floor.

Officers contacted the child and the child’s mother. The mother stated she and Miller got into an argument during Miller’s visitation with their children. When she left the room and went outside to her car she heard the daughter screaming and saw Miller holding their daughter partially over the balcony railing.

The child managed to get away from Miller and ran outside the hotel to her mother.
