Footage from boxer Jarrell Miller’s recent arrest in Florida has emerged, showing the 6-foot-4, 330-pound fighter joking with police before being taken into custody on carjacking allegations.
In the police footage, released by TMZ, Miller is heard asking officers to find his Godbrother nearby.
‘He look like you?’ one officer asked.
‘Nah,’ Miller said while sporting a grin. ‘He’s white as a motherf***er. He’s my Godbrother!’
When escorted towards the back of the police cruiser, Miller asked one officer if they could ‘handcuff me to the front’ because he apparently didn’t think he could fit into the backseat.

Jarrell Miller was arrested earlier this month and charged with carjacking without a firearm
‘These things are huge – plenty of room,’ one officer told the heavyweight.
Miller was arrested earlier this month over an alleged carjacking without a firearm or weapon and burglary with assault or battery.
The 35-year-old Brooklyn native was apprehended by the police in Hollywood, Florida, after being accused of attacking a car dealership employee and then disappearing in a Dodge Ram pickup truck that was recently repossessed, according to news network WSVN.
Police reportedly said that Miller did not know that the truck had a tracker inside, which is how he was located by law enforcement.
The converted kickboxer is said to have placed the employee in a chokehold and slammed him to the ground before snatching his keys and fleeing the scene.
Millr was held and ultimately released on $30,000 bond at the Broward Sheriff’s Office in Fort Lauderdale.
The news came just two weeks after Miller’s lucrative bout with Daniel Dubois in Saudi Arabia, with the pair featuring on the highly-anticipated Day of Reckoning card.

Miller ultimately lost the fight due to a 12th-round TKO, but picked up a career highest payday in the process – which he says is in the millions, though full details have not been disclosed.
The fight was meant to help Miller get his life back on track after being handed a two-year ban in December 2020 following a four positive drugs tests in a 12-month period.
Miller was supposed to fight Anthony Joshua for the Brit’s IBF, WBO and WBA heavyweight titles at Madison Square Garden on June 1, 2020.
However, Miller failed a series of Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) tests in late March and served a six-month ban as a result of his doping.
Miller’s replacement, Andy Ruiz, stunned Joshua at Madison Square Garden before falling to the Watford native in their rematch in Saudi Arabia.
Interviewed on Mail Sport podcast The Hook, Miller has said that Joshua is still ‘bitter’ and that nobody ‘gives a s***’ about Joshua in America.
When asked if Joshua is still bitter at Miller, the American said: ‘Most definitely he’s still bitter about that but it’s so funny that you lose to somebody that doesn’t hit as hard as me, not as big as I am, not as mean as I am – short notice and he smoked you.
‘I have a better chin than Andy I believe. If that guy did that to you, imagine what I would do to you in my home city (New York). Mentally, it makes you look at AJ – even from that day on – he’s never came back to America. He hasn’t attempted to come back to America.
‘So that just shows me, you have no confidence, your team has no confidence, the American market is not really your thing and nobody gives a s*** about AJ in America.
‘Even if English fans were kind of fed up with him, I’m getting DM’s all the time saying ‘Kick his a** I’m from England’ I have it all the time and I’m like, ‘s***’.
