The legal woes for former UFC fighter Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller continue to grow.
Mayhem Miller has been arrested for allegedly attacking a police officer — and shockingly, it’s not the first time he’s been accused of getting violent with law enforcement.
Miller, who fought in the UFC before hosting a show on MTV called Bully Beatdown was taken into custody in Orange County, where officials say cops were initially called to the scene about an alleged altercation involving Miller and a woman.
When the Orange County Sheriff’s Department arrived to the scene Miller allegedly attacked one of the officers.
He was eventually subdued and arrested for assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer.
Orange County Sheriff’s Department officials responded shortly before 1:35 a.m. to Miller’s home in the 26200 block of Avenida Calidad after neighbors called about hearing a disturbance in the house, authorities said.
“Deputies arrived and heard sounds of a female screaming coming from inside the house,” according to a sheriff’s department release. “As deputies entered the side yard of the residence, they were immediately confronted by Miller who was aggressive and yelling.”
Miller is accused of throwing a ceramic tile at officials and threatening them with a large fire extinguisher and metal pole during the eight-minute dispute that ended in Miller being tasered.
Two women, who investigators suspect were fighting with Miller, were found inside the home, and both refused to cooperate with deputies.
Miller was booked into Orange County jail and was held in lieu of $50,000 bail. His newest court date is scheduled for Monday.
