Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller Arrested Yesterday For Domestic Violence, Faces Up to Four Years in Prison

Details are scarce at the moment, but MMAMania has confirmed with the Orange County Police Department that semi-retired MMA fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller was arrested yesterday morning on a felony charge of Domestic Violence 273.5 PC, not burglary as was originally reported. Miller’s alleged victim has yet to be named. The former UFC/Strikeforce fighter was released on bond at 12:21 a.m. PT last night, and is now in the care of his family. The California Penal Code describes Miller’s charge as follows:

Any person who willfully inflicts upon a person who is his or her spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, former cohabitant, or the mother or father of his or her child, corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition is guilty of a felony, and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not more than one year, or by a fine of up to six thousand dollars ($6,000) or by both that fine and imprisonment.

Over the past two years, we’ve seen Mayhem go from lovably eccentric to unstable and potentially dangerous to himself and others. The troubles officially began in May 2012, when he was fired by the UFC for, and I quote, “some crazy shit” that happened backstage at UFC 146. Three months later, he was arrested for a bizarre naked burglary at an Orange County church; charges for that incident were later dropped. And then, two months after the church thing, Miller had his infamous “Lucky Patrick” appearance on The MMA Hour, which could charitably be described as a promotional appearance gone awry.

Mayhem’s life has been much less eventful this year, thankfully, although he did whip out a knife during a FOX LA interview segment last month and started slicing up his t-shirt, which was kind of weird and uncomfortable. We’ll update you when we know more about Miller’s latest arrest.

You know, it occurs to me that there seems to be a growing number of Mayhem detractors that like to imply (or blatantly state) that J.M is some sort of self-aggrandizing sociopath with lunatic, schizophrenic and moronic tendencies. That is all.

He should do humanity a favor and off himself.

Wow. I didn't realize how far past the edge Luke Cummo had gone. That video makes me uncomfortable.

According to this morning's Orange Country Register article: "Witnesses say Miller and a female acquaintance were interacting with fans online when he was forced to login to a forum using Facebook. His mood quickly soured and things to a turn for the worse."

We weren't there and have no idea of what happened. We cannot judge his actions.

I've seen Miller fight on many occasions. I'm thinking that if a violent act did occur, Mayham was most likely the victim.

with Millers cardio I'd bet the "violence" barely meets misdemeanor status.
