JACKSONVILLE, AR -- Jacksonville police release 911 calls and dash cam video of that school bus hijacking from October.

On October 17, eleven elementary students and their bus driver were hijacked on the way to Pinewood Elementary School.

The students and bus driver got out safely.

Detectives arrested Miller.

He's been charged with 12 counts of kidnapping, among other charges.

The family of Nicholas Miller said he battled a drug addiction.  They tried to seek mental help for him, but to no avail.
