Prosecutors said the two men sold about 3.5 grams of cocaine to a Bloomington Police Department vice unit Tuesday.

Miles was driving a vehicle with Johnson as a passenger when Bloomington police attempted to conduct a traffic stop following the drug transaction, prosecutors said.

Miles “rammed” a police squad car when he tried to flee the traffic stop, but the two men were eventually arrested Tuesday, according to a probable cause statement.

Police searched the vehicle and seized about 12 grams of cocaine, drug packaging materials and about $1,500, prosecutors said.

Miles and Johnson each remain jailed in lieu of posting $20,035.

Arraignments are scheduled for Dec. 10.
