Troubled MMA fighter Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller is yet again in trouble with the police after being arrested for felony domestic violence, and his bail has been set at a whopping $1,385,000.
Police in San Fernando Valley rushed to the scene at 3am on Friday morning after a panicked call from a female who had screamed for help.
When they arrived the woman had visible marks on both her face and neck, which led to them attempting to arrest Miller, who resisted, leading to him being tased in the ensuing struggle, before being taken to jail, where he still remains.
This is not the first time that Miller has faced domestic violence charges, while his long history of getting into trouble with the law over the years also includes having a long stand-off with a SWAT team after barricading himself inside his own home, vandalizing a church, attempted grand theft auto, DUI, battery, protective order violations and trespassing charges.
It’s all a far-cry from his heyday when he was a fighter competing for the likes of the UFC, Strikeforce and DREAM, with his larger-than-life personality leading to him hosting MTV’s Bully Beatdown show.
Being released from the UFC in 2012 after a two-fight losing streak and then announcing his retirement appeared to be the catalyst for Miller’s life to spiral completely out of control however, and he’s never fully been able to steady the ship since.
