Santa Ana, CA — Former UFC fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller has been released from jail following a domestic violence arrest Sunday.
Miller was released from the Central Jail Complex in Santa Ana Monday morning after posting a $50,000 bond, Orange County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Jeff Hallock told MMAJunkie.
Hallock said Miller would likely be due in court within 30 to 60 days. In California, domestic violence is a felony and carries a sentence of two to four years in state prison or a minimum of one year in county jail and a $6,000 fine.
It was initially reported that Miller was arrested for attempted burglary.
The 32-year-old was arrested last August after he was found naked on a couch in the Mission Hills Church in Mission Viejo. The first and second floors of the church were covered in fire extinguisher spray, and books and pictures were strewn all over the place. Miller was arrested on one count of burglary and was medically evaluated for mental and physical issues.
Miller was released after posting a $20,000 bond, and the charges were dropped after the pastor, Brian Anderson, came forward in his defense.
Miller was arrested in August 2011 in North Carolina after allegedly putting his sister in a headlock and refusing to let her go when she wanted to leave a house party. His sister was able to escape and went to the Chatham County Sheriff. Miller was arrested for simple assault and false imprisonment. He said he was trying to stop her from driving and that the charges were “over with.”
Jason Miller was banned from the UFC last May after president Dana White announced that his stunts and antics didn’t fit with the promotion’s goals. White said Miller was fired over “just some dumb bulls**t” that happened backstage at UFC 146.
“If you want to be a clown do that stuff on your reality show,” White said.
