MMA Fighter 'Mayhem' Miller Arrested After Another Brawl With Cops
MMA fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller is in trouble with the law again, with his second fight with cops this year.Orange County Sheriff's deputies arrived at Miller's home on the 26200 block of Avenida Calidad in Mission Viejo around 1:30 a.m., Friday morning, after a disturbance call. When deputies entered through the yard of his home, Miller was "aggressive and yelling" and confronted them. According to a press release from the Orange County Sheriff's Department, Miller threw a ceramic tile and threatened the deputies with a fire extinguisher and a metal pole. After an eight-minute struggle, Miller was eventually subdued and arrested after he was Tasered.
When the cops first arrived at the scene a woman's scream could be heard from inside the home. Miller had been fighting with two women as deputies arrived, but neither woman was cooperative with the investigation.
In March, Miller was arrested after he got into a brawl with cops at a Laguna Beach bar and even kicked out the windows of the cop car even after he taken into custody. Last October he live-tweeted his standoff with cops from his Mission Viejo home and eventually surrendered when the SWAT team broke down his front door. In 2012, he was arrested after trashing a church in the buff.
Miller is best known as the host of the former MTV show Bully Beatdown.
