His father stood firm, however, calling cops and having him arrested on charges of burglary and attempted robbery, according to court documents. The elder Miller said his son became addicted to painkillers because of his excruciating erections. “My son has a very rare disease, he has a priapism, which means he gets an erection that lasts five or six hours, and it’s very painful,” Tommy Miller, 57, said. “They gave him oxycodone. That’s his problem. “He’s addicted to drugs now.” Miller’s father said his son has suffered for years. “He’s been sick since he was a little boy. He has an enzyme deficiency,” he said. “I had him arrested. I bailed him out.”Last May, David was arrested and charged with attempted robbery and weapons possession after he demanded cash from a man sitting on a bench at knifepoint.
