Harold Mills told an undercover sheriff's agent he wanted oral sex.

UCF Vice Chair Harold Mills was arrested for soliciting a prostitute and indecent exposure this week after he showed his penis to an undercover agent in Altamonte Springs’ Sanlando Park, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s arrest report.

“These misdemeanor allegations are being investigated independently by me and my team and as most know, facts as they unfold are often markedly different than what is initially reported,” Mills’ attorney, Mark NeJame said in a statement Saturday. “However, none of this should overshadow the immense contributions that Harold has made to the underprivileged, the arts, business and his countless employees over the years.”

The sheriff’s report detailed how the Windermere resident was arrested in an undercover sting Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

Through a map-based hookup app, Mills asked an undercover agent if the agent was in the park, the arrest report.

Mills told the agent it was his first time there and asked for the agent to meet him in his Tesla so Mills felt more comfortable because he wasn’t sure where was safest, the arrest report said.

The agent approached Mills’ window and told him to go into the bathroom. Mills said he was nervous about leaving his car in the parking lot so the undercover agent suggested a secluded area on the north end of the parking lot, the arrest report said.

Mills agreed to go there. Mills told the agent he wanted oral sex when the agent asked Mills what he wanted, the report said.

“The agent asked to see what Mills was ‘working with.’ Mills pulled his penis out of the unzipped pants,” the arrest report said. “The agent walked to the bathroom and gave the take down command.”

Mills was taken out of the park in an unmarked van and then went to jail in a marked sheriff’s car.

Mills told the sheriff’s office he frequently went to parks to clear his mind during work.

Mills also said the undercover agent agent wanted to have sex with him, but Mills said he was not going to follow the agent into the bathroom.

Mills was appointed to the UCF trustees in 2019 and re-elected for a second term as vice chair last year. His term expires January 2026.

Mills is the CEO of VMD Ventures, which invests in entrepreneurs in technology and service industries. He has a MBA from Harvard Business School, according to UCF.

Mills is active in the community and serves with several organizations. He is a trustee at Rollins College, a small private liberal arts school in Winter Park.

UCF did not immediately respond to comment immediately Saturday morning. Rollins declined to comment.

“The outpouring of support he is receiving from the community and from around the country speaks to his renowned compassion, philanthropy, and dedication to helping others. For this, he is eternally grateful,” NeJame said.

      Good Morn ‘Ting America,
      Even in The Free State of Florida overseen by The Great Ron “The Ronald” DeSantis and his Lovely Wife Casey we suffer from the cancer and pox of “Dook 4 Brains Leftys” in our schools and universities.
      Odds are 99.999% that this UCF Trustee is just another “Dook 4 Brains Leftist” and any attempt to connect this “Cancer and Pox on Florida by Dook 4 Brains Leftys” is just stupid Leftist Propaganda.
      America lets all vote Trump into the position of our next POTUS to “Save Our Childern” from the Cancer and Pox which has decended on our education system not just in Florida but Nation-Wide.
      Thank you America,

    another harvard grad bites the dust. this right-wing conservative group of desasntis’ state leadership clones have been a sexual embarrassment to the state. florida will be known for sex tourism, if it isn’t already. the zeigler incident brought in lots of pervs to see where all the action is.

      Self-awareness much? Do the words “Jeffrey Epstein” mean anything? It’s pathetic – framing everything in the left-right paradigm to fit a bias, it completely undercuts any credibility.

        TD, maga amplifies and controls using a left-right paradigm. am i suppose to ignore this and act like it is not so. to not defend yourself is an old dem trait to some people, not me. to win, you have to know your opponent and sometimes turn the tables by using the opponents techniques. the right does not own the pervert condemnation tool. the left doesn’t have the same conservative approach to sex that the right does. live and let live as opposed to, do it my way or go to jail. the dems need to win ANY way they can.

            S.SULLIVAN, you seemed to have made an error, it’s the gop/maga that is being charged with cheating. you said dem instead of gop/maga. i don’t mean to be picky by pointing your error out, but i would expect you to correct me if i made an error. after all, that is the dem way. BTW, i agree with you, the gop/ maga people are treasonous. i’m a veteran, and i resent the unamerican behavior of the gop/maga cult.

  • My Take

    MAGAs would have to know whether the agent is male or female to know whether to hate this guy.

    Harold is and has been a consummate professional and a success model throughout his entire presence in Central Florida.
    His contributions to upleveling the mean equanimity here have been game changing.
    Floridas largest and most advanced designed, Boys and Girls Club in West Transforming Orlando was stimulated from his introduction of philanthropist Jacqui Bradley and Clarence Otis , who provided the seed $4 million that anchored the $9 million full build investment.as just one among many examples.
    Harold should not be judged on this one event . The totatality of the ultimate measure of the man is compassionately fair consideration. Jonathan Blount Conceptual Founder Essence Magazine
