Former MMA star Jason “Mayhem” Miller (pictured) is in the news again, and once again it’s for all the wrong reasons.
According to NBCLA.com, Miller was arrested Friday morning for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer after allegedly threatening sheriff’s deputies with a fire extinguisher and a metal pole during a confrontation at a Mission Viejo, California, home.
Authorities responding to a disturbance call at around 1:30AM after a woman was reportedly heard screaming from inside the residence. After arriving at the scene, police entered through the side gate and was confronted by an aggressive Miller who was yelling at them.
“Miller threw a ceramic tile at deputies and threatened them with a large fire extinguisher and metal pole as he retreated towards the backyard,” the release stated.
After refusing to listen to orders, deputies were forced to use a stun gun to get Miller to cooperate. He was finally handcuffed after an eight-minute struggle.
It is believed Miller had been in a fight with two females inside the residence. Investigators interviewed both women, but they were uncooperative.
Miller was booked for assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer. His bail was set at $50,000 and is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Of course, this isn’t Miller first brush up with the law. The troubled 34-year-old has been arrested at least three times since 2011.
In August 2011, Miller was cuffed in North Carolina for allegedly assaulting his sister at a party. He reportedly held her in a headlock and refused to let go.
Miller was charged with burglary and vandalism in August 2012 after he broke into the Mission Hills Church in Mission Viejo. Miller, who was found nude on a couch when the O.C. Sheriff’s Department arrived, reportedly trashed the place.
In August 2013, Miller was arrested for domestic violence.
Last October, Miller barricaded himself inside his home when police tried to issue an arrest warrant for alleged stalking. SWAT was called to the scene and was finally able to get Miller in cuffs. Miller was live-tweeting the entire incident.
