Jason “Mayhem” Miller was arrested for domestic violence Thursday, a little over a week after he was released from jail on the same charge.
The UFC veteran was arrested on a felony charge of corporal injury of a spouse, CPC 273.5 (A), and held on $50,000 bail. According to Bloody Elbow, the charge means that there was enough physical evidence on the victim for the charge. Had there been no evidence, the charge would be 243 (E)(1), and bail would have been set at $20,000.
Miller was previously arrested for domestic violence on August 11, and released two days later after posting a $50,000 bond. It was initially reported that he was arrested for attempted burglary.
The victim called police on August 10 and said that she had been the victim of domestic violence on August 3. She and Miller had gotten into an argument over a text message she found on his phone. Police were unable to reach Miller for a statement that day. On August 11, police were dispatched to a Mission Viejo residence in response to a loud party. When they arrived, they found Miller yelling at neighbors. He was arrested for CPC 273.5, which carries a maximum sentence of two to four years in a state prison.
The victim suffered multiple bruises to both arms and legs, a laceration and bleeding above her right eyebrow, and a laceration to the right side of her face.
Miller apologized for the incident on his website, writing, “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 said he apologized with all of his heart, and quoted Acts 03:19 in Tagalog. The verse loosely translates to, “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out.”
Jason “Mayhem” Miller is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
