The Jason Miller saga just reached its weirdest point today. After the former UFC and Strikeforce middleweight had a major Twitter feud with Dana White over the weekend, Miller was arrested in Mission Viejo, CA for breaking into a church, spraying the place with a fire extinguisher and then proceeding to get completely naked. Entertainment and gossip kings TMZ reported this story:
Ex-UFC fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller was arrested today in Orange County, TMZ has learned -- after allegedly breaking into a church, spraying a fire extinguisher all over the place, and getting buck naked.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the O.C. Sheriff's Office received a call early this morning from the Mission Hills Church in Mission Viejo about a possible burglary in progress.
When the deputies arrived, we're told they found the first and second floors covered in white fire extinguisher spray. Cops say the place was also trashed -- scattered CDs, books, and broken pictures.
When officers reached the 2nd floor, we're told they found Miller naked on some couch -- totally awake and coherent.
Essentially, Jason Miller literally caused "Mayhem" at the Mission Hills Church. He was taken into custody on burglary charges, and this is not the first time this has happened. In 2005 he was arrested on first-degree burglary in Hawai'i, but was acquitted of that and a few other criminal charges.
Miller has had a history of problematic public behavior, including being at the center of the infamous Strikeforce: Nashville brawl back in April 2010, and more recently a supposed backstage incident after his loss to C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146 that saw him gone from the organization yet again.
Earlier today we told you Dana White stated he felt "bummed out" about the whole ordeal with Miller, including a quote saying Miller was already suffering from depression.
