Sunday morning Jason Miller was arrested. Reasons at the time were unclear, from his tweeting shortly before the incident, to rumors that he may have been involved in some sort of burglary, and even a general lack of clarity if in fact the person under arrest was the man MMA fans know as "Mayhem." Following his release on bail, into the custody of his parents, we now have a better outline on the facts of the case. MMAMania was first on the story with this document from the sheriff's department detailing the arrest.
On Saturday, August 10, 2013, Sheriff's personnel were advised by a caller that she was the victim of domestic violence that occurred on Saturday, August 3, 2013, in Mission Viejo.
Deputy C. Martin responded at approximately 1336 hours to the alleged victim's location. The alleged victim reported that at approximately 2100 hours on Saturday, August 3, 2013, she and Jason Nicholas Miller were involved in an argument regarding a text message she found on Miller's cellular phone. Deputies were unable to make contact with Miller on August 10th to obtain his statement.
On Sunday, August 11, 2013, at about 0530 hours, deputies were dispatched to a residence in Mission Viejo reference at loud party. When they arrived, they contacted Miller who was outside his residence yelling at his neighbors. Based on the report filed by the alleged victim, Miller was arrested for CPC 273.5, domestic violence.
Injuries to the alleged victim include multiple bruises covering both arms and both legs, laceration and bleeding above right eyebrow (approx. 1.5" wide), and laceration to the right side of face (approx. 1.5" wide). No property or weapons involved.
While domestic violence can carry a misdemeanor or felony charge in California, the booking report from the arrest suggests that Miller will indeed be up on felony charges. Given the injuries involved and Miller's arrest record I wouldn't be surprised if he has difficulty avoiding jail time. His victim has not been named, and no official statement has been given by Miller or his family, but we'll keep you updated as events unfold.
