This isn't the first time the former host of MTV's Bully Beatdown has been arrested. Last October, Miller live-tweeted a four-hour standoff he had with Orange County Sheriff's Dept. deputies in his Mission Viejo home. Deputies tried to serve a warrant to Miller for stalking allegations, but things escalated and he barricaded himself in the home. And he's also been arrested for putting his sister in a really long headlock in 2011, suspicion of domestic violence in 2013, and for breaking into an Orange County church in 2012 and vandalizing it before police found him napping on a couch there naked.
