Once again, Jason Miller has been arrested by California police, this time for an alleged assault against an officer at Miller’s home in Mission Viejo. The 34-year-old former Strikeforce contender and UFC middleweight has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer following reports of a disturbance in the early hours of the morning: (Per NBC Los Angeles)
“Miller threw a ceramic tile at deputies and threatened them with a large fire extinguisher and metal pole as he retreated towards the backyard,” the release said.
Deputies used a stun gun on Miller after they say he refused to comply with their orders. He was handcuffed after an eight-minute struggle, deputies said.
Investigators learned that Miller had been in a fight with two females inside the home. Both were interviewed, but officials said they were uncooperative with the investigation.
This is another in a laundry list of incidents involving him and authorities. In March, he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery and resisting arrest at a restaurant in Laguna Beach, of which evidence of the incident was caught on video. Last year, he live-tweeted a standoff with the SWAT team at his home, and he later pleaded not guilty on charges related to the standoff. In 2013, he was arrested and charged with corporal injury of spouse twice in two weeks. The year before that, he broke into a church, used a fire extinguisher inside, and was found naked when police arrested him.
Mayhem’s bail for this latest booking is currently set at $50,000, with a scheduled court appearance on Monday.
