Lieutenant Mickey McMillan suffered a fatal heart attack while involved in a foot pursuit in a department store parking lot. He had observed three people illegally soliciting on the property and entered the store to request assistance from the store's security officers.

When they returned outside one of the three people began to run. Lieutenant McMillan chased him a short distance before collapsing. He was transported to Bellaire City Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The three people who had fled were arrested several hours later and charged with criminal trespassing.

Lieutenant McMillan had served with the agency for 5 years and was the county's head jailer. He was a US Navy veteran of the Vietnam War and was survived by his wife, two children, and sister.
