[CW: The following article includes descriptions of domestic violence]
Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, 40, has been arrested yet again. This time the former UFC and Strikeforce fighter was charged with felony domestic violence. TMZ reports that Miller was tased by cops in Los Angeles who were responding to an emergency call made by a woman who was screaming for help.
TMZ claims that police sources told them they discovered a woman with marks on her face and then attempted to arrest Miller at his home in the San Fernando Valley. Those sources claimed Miller resisted arrest, leading to him being tased and eventually cuffed. Miller was reportedly taken to hospital after the incident before being booked into jail.
Miller, who has a long list of prior arrests, has had his bail set at $1.385 million.
Prior to this arrest, Miller’s last known interaction with the law was in May when he plead guilty to vandalism, in exchange for a charge of felony grand theft being dropped.
In 2019 he plead guilty to felony vandalism and misdemeanour violation of a protective stay-away order. Those charges stemmed from when he punched holes in the walls of his girlfriend’s home in La Habra. He also removed doors from the residence and smashed a large marble table. Miller was sentenced to a year in jail for those charges and three years of probation.
In 2018 Miller was arrested for a probation violation and was discovered to be in possession of a bulletproof vest, various weapons, human growth hormone and other performance enhancing drugs.
In 2017 Miller plead guilty to beating his girlfriend (the same woman whose home he later vandalized). For that he was sentenced to 124 days in jail.
In 2016 Miller was arrested on suspicion of vandalizing a tattoo parlor in Lake Forest. In 2015 he allegedly assaulted a sheriff’s deputy in Mission Viejo. That year he was also arrested in Laguna Beach and charged with simple misdemeanour battery and resisting arrest.
In 2014 Miller live streamed an hours-long standoff with armed police at his home in Mission Viejo. The police were there to arrest Miller on suspicion of domestic violence and stalking. Miller eventually surrendered to police.
In 2013 Miller was arrested twice on suspicion of domestic battery. He was given bail of $100,000. He was later taken into custody for violating a no-contact restraining order.
In 2012 Miller was found naked inside of a church in Mission Viejo. Miller had broken into that building and ransacked it, smashing picture frames and setting off fire extinguishers.
In 2011 Miller was charged with simple assault and false imprisonment after allegedly assaulting his sister at a house party.
