Former UFC fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller has issued an official apology regarding his recent domestic violence arrest.
Miller was arrested on August 11 after the victim called police and said that they had gotten into an argument over a text message she found on his cell phone. The victim suffered multiple bruises on both arms and legs, and a laceration and bleeding above her right eyebrow.
Police were dispatched to a residence in Mission Viejo in response to a loud party, and when they arrived, Miller was outside yelling at his neighbors. He was arrested under California Penal Code 273.5, felony domestic violence. The charges carry a maximum sentence of two to four years in state prison.
Miller was released Monday morning after posting a $50,000 bond.
Wednesday, Miller issued a strange apology on his website, taking a page out of the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg’s book and referring to himself as “J. Mayhem Lion.”
Miller’s apology reads in part, “I and I beg for forgiveness. If I have brought shame or pain upon [victim’s name redacted], her Father, her Mother, her Sister, her children and Shiloh. Know this; JAH THE ALMIGHTY SHALL JUDGE AND NO-MAN.”
He went on to write, “I APOLOGIZE WITH ALL MY HEART, DURING THE MOST CHALLENGING TIME OF MY life, I ask only for YOU TO UNNASTAN. 33.”
The apology ends with a Bible verse, written in Tagalog, that loosely translates to, “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out. Acts 03:19.”
Miller is expected to appear in court in a couple of weeks to answer to the charges.
The 32-year-old was previously arrested in North Carolina for domestic violence in August 2011. Jason Miller allegedly put his sister in a headlock and refused to let her go when she wanted to leave a house party. His sister went to police, and he was arrested for false imprisonment and simple assault.
