Former UFC Fighter Arrested, Charged With Multiple Felonies
A former UFC fighter has been arrested once again and is being charged with multiple felonies.
Court records have revealed that Jason “Mayhem” Miller was arrested on August 21. He is being held without bond in a Newport Beach, California jail. Miller was hit with charges on Tuesday (via NBC Los Angeles).
Miller has pleaded not guilty to felony counts of first-degree burglary, unlawful taking of a vehicle, and grand theft auto. Miller is already on probation due to a domestic violence case separate from this incident. A pretrial hearing has been set for September 2. It’ll be held inside the Harbor Justice Center.
Miller has had run-ins with the law in the past. In 2014, “Mayhem” had a five-hour standoff with a SWAT team when officers attempted to serve him a warrant. He also pleaded guilty to one count of domestic violence in 2017. Miller was also sentenced to one year in jail and three years’ probation in July 2019 after pleading guilty to felony vandalism and a misdemeanor violation of a protective stay-away order.
“Mayhem” last competed under the UFC banner back on May 26, 2012. He was defeated by C.B. Dollaway via unanimous decision and given his release from the UFC. After taking a four-year hiatus from the sport of MMA, Miller returned and was submitted by Mattia Schiavolin.
