MMA Fighter Jason 'Mayhem' Miller Charged With Vandalism
It was over two weeks ago that mixed martial arts middleweight fighter and television personality Jason Miller, 31, better known to some as "Mayhem," was found naked and sleeping in a vandalized church in the town of Mission Viejo in California's Orange County.
When the pastor entered the church on the morning of August 13, he discovered mayhem — so to speak — on the first floor in the form of broken pictures and books littering the floor, as well as spray paint all over the walls and a fire extinguisher that had been set off. He then found "Mayhem" the man on the second floor, naked and "dozing" on a couch, reports the L.A. Times.
"When they asked him his name, he kept saying, 'Mayhem, Mayhem," said Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. "They didn't know who he was — they thought he was being uncooperative."
Miller was then arrested and taken to a hospital ward before he was deemed fit for booking. He has now been formally charged with misdemeanor vandalism and could face up to one year in jail or probation if convicted, said Farrah Emami, a spokesperson for the district attorney's office.
Mayhem has been tweeting to his followers since the incident, establishing that it was "not a cry for attention, personal glory, or monetary gain." He later wrote, "I did some socially unacceptable things last Sunday, that, for some reason has got some of you to hate me, even though at one time you loved."
Mayhem is known for his flashy entrances and fighting style.
