Bail Raised to $200K for Dancer in Fatal DUI Case

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A prosecutor says a strip club dancer was driving drunk and high on marijuana in a crash last month that killed a Las Vegas man and injured his 2-year-old son in the backseat.

A Las Vegas judge raised bail Wednesday to $200,000 for Shauna Diane Miller, and set an April 24 evidence hearing in the felony DUI case.

The 26-year-old Miller is accused of causing a crash that killed 33-year-old James White early March 23.

Prosecutor Brian Rutledge told the judge Miller's blood alcohol level was more than two times the legal limit and her marijuana level was more than five times the limit.

Miller told investigators she drank two beers at the club and had taken the anti-anxiety medication Xanax the night before.
