Silver Spring Township woman filed false rape report after smoking crack, police say

When Mike Obrock got home Wednesday morning after a night on the town with Donna F. Miller, police said, he had a message on his answering machine from her, saying she had a wonderful time and asking why he didn't love her.

Maybe it was because -- according to court documents -- she punched him in the mouth and hit him with her crutch when he tried to drop her off in the parking lot of the Camp Hill Shopping Center. Or perhaps it was because of the false report police said Miller filed claiming she had been raped.

Miller, 50, of the 400 block of Hiltonhead Avenue, was arrested yesterday morning by Camp Hill police and charged with resisting arrest, false alarms to a public safety agency, fictitious reports and false reports to police. She was arraigned in front of District Judge Richard S. Dougherty and committed to Cumberland County Prison in lieu of $7,500 bail, court documents state.

According to police, Miller, who is also known as “One-legged Donna,” and Obrock had spent the night together in Harrisburg, where they had sex and smoked crack cocaine. When they ran out of crack, they used his gas money to try to buy more, but was burned by a dealer who sold a fake substance, police said.

Out of money and low on fuel, Obrock, no age or address given, decided rather than drive Miller all the way back to Silver Spring Township, he would drop her off at the shopping center, police said. That apparently did not go over well with Miller, who police said assaulted Obrock and then called 911, claimed she was being raped and hung up. Police said Obrock thought the call was a ruse to scare him into giving her a ride all the way home, which he did.

Police responded to the shopping center, but Miller wasn't there. According to police, she told a dispatcher who called her that she would make a report after she got home, but she didn't.

When police called her, Miller said she could not go to police headquarters to be interviewed because she was being held hostage in her trailer by the assailant, who was threatening to retaliate if she spoke with police, according to court documents.

A Camp Hill police officer and two Silver Spring Township officers went to Miller's home. Police said they saw no signs of injuries she had reported and no evidence she had been held hostage. After Miller told police she had consensual sex with Obrock, they informed her she was going to be arrested for making a false report to police.

Miller refused to get dressed and cooperate with officers, police said, but was taken into custody through the use of “soft and hard hand control.”
