Free At Last
Jason “Mayhem” Miller has had a rocky couple of years, to say the least. After being arrested for multiple felony charges including spitting on an officer and barricading himself in his Mission Viejo home while live tweeting the whole event, Miller was then arrested for domestic violence charges against his then girlfriend.
Mayhem has now been exonerated of all domestic battery charges and the MMA fighter says he feels the world has “opened up” to him.
“I feel like the world’s opened up to me now. I feel like things are finally cleared up for Mayhem,” Miller said, adding that he’ll celebrate by going to the gym.”
“I feel tremendous,” Miller said outside the courtroom. “Justice was served. The system worked, kind of slowly, but it worked.”
His ex-girlfriend claimed Mayhem had straddled her and punched her in the face repeatedly during a domestic incident, but the former Strikeforce contender says he was the one that was attacked that night.
“She chased me out the back door, ripped off my shirt and jumped on my back and choked me,” Miller testified.
It took the jury an hour to deliberate and they found no sufficient evidence that Miller had in fact committed any crime. 36 year old Miller says he wants to get back to the gym where he trains and manages other fighters. Mayhem is still facing charges for multiple other felonies but this is definitely a step in the right direction.
What do you guys think will come of the former “Bully beatdown” star, will we see him back in the octagon anytime soon?
