Former mixed martial arts star Jason “Mayhem” Miller has found himself behind bars once again. Reports first surfaced on Sunday morning that a man named Jason Miller had been arrested in California, but it was not yet known whether or not it was the Mayhem Miller that once graced the UFC octagon.
After some digging, it looks like it was indeed the Bully Beatdown host that was arrested for attempted burglary.
This morning (August 11, 2013), Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller was arrested in Orange County, California and is being held at the Central Jail Complex in Santa Ana, California. Initially details were sketchy as under California Government Code 6254(f)(1), the only way to receive an arrest report is to ask for one in person.
What we did know was that he was being held on a $50,000 bail.
MMA Mania’s CJ Tuttle has learned from a source within the Orange County Sheriff’s Department that Miller was arrested and charged with Attempted Burglary. Under California Penal Code 459 PC, Burglary is defined as “entering a structure with intent to commit a felony or (a petty theft) once inside.”
Burglary is considered a “wobbler” under Penal Code 459
While details are still very unclear, we can expect to learn more about the exact circumstances that led to Mayhem being placed behind bars in the coming hours or days.
It was just last year that Mayhem’s life seemed to be spiraling out of control, but he seemed to have a grip of things as of late. Unfortunately, something led to Mayhem having a slip up and another brush with the law.
