Chief Deputy Mills was killed when he was struck by a drunk driver. He and two other officers were en route to serve an arrest warrant when they noticed a vehicle driving recklessly on the highway. The officers stopped the vehicle and as they exited their patrol car, they were struck by an oncoming vehicle driven by a drunk driver. Chief Deputy Mills was transported to a local hospital where he died approximately two weeks later. The second deputy recovered from his injuries. The driver was charged with drunk driving and manslaughter.

Chief Deputy Mills had been with the agency for four years and was survived by his wife and ten children.
