Mixed martial artist Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller was sentenced to three years of probation and 100 days in jail today following an arrest for a string of felonies stemming from multiple incidents in Orange County, California.
Miller, 36, pleaded guilty to nearly a dozen felonies and misdemeanors, including assault on a peace officer, battery and resisting arrest.
Miller was given double credit for 50 days of time served. The credit came as part of a plea bargain meaning he will not have to spend more time in jail.
A jury in February acquitted Miller of felony domestic violence after determining he did not beat up his ex-girlfriend in his Mission Viejo home in 2013.
In October 2014, he barricaded himself inside his home for more than four hours and live tweeted the incident while Orange County Sheriff’s Department deputies tried to detain him for an outstanding arrest warrant.
In 2015, he was arrested after police say he kicked and spit at officers following an incident inside a Laguna Beach restaurant.
He was arrested again last year after police said he resisted arrest and spit in an officer’s face in Costa Mesa.
He also was accused of throwing a tile at a sheriff’s deputy responding to his Mission Viejo home after reports of a disturbance.
“I take responsibility for my stupidity,” Miller said. “You can’t rough up the police with no consequences.”
Miller said his depression has lifted since his acquittal, and he’s working to rebuild his life and career.
“I’ll serve my time with my head held high,” he said. “I’ll straighten up and fly right.”Follow MyMMANews.com on Social Media
