COLUMBIA - A Columbia teen who was recently acquitted by a jury in a connection with a 2012 shooting at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant now faces two new felony charges related to an armed robbery of a Kansas City cellphone store.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that 17-year-old James T. Miller was arrested Saturday, eight days after a Boone County jury found him not guilty of firing a .45-caliber handgun at the restaurant full of children.

Miller spent nearly 13 months in the Boone County Jail awaiting trial in the Columbia case. He remained in the Jackson County Detention Center late Tuesday on a cash-only bond of $150,000.
