[CW: The following article includes descriptions of domestic violence]

Earlier this month it was reported that Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, 40, had been arrested and charged with felony domestic violence. It was also alleged that Miller resisted arrest and was tased before being taken into police custody.

This is arrest is just the latest in a string of arrests and accusations that have plagued Miller for the past decade. Due to his prior convictions and parole status, TMZ is reporting that Miller now risks having to serve a lengthy prison sentence.

TMZ also provided some more details on Miller’s latest arrest, which they obtained through their ‘police sources’.

That outlet claims that police arrived at Miller’s house in the San Fernando Valley after a 911 call from a woman who was screaming for help. The police said they found the woman with visible marks on her face and neck. TMZ also reports that the woman had jumped out of a window to escape Miller.

Police allege that, after they arrived on the scene, Miller barricaded himself inside his bathroom. The police said they had to knock down the bathroom door in order to confront and eventually arrest Miller.

It is also alleged that Miller was involved in a separate incident before this took place. TMZ reported that Miller was being investigated over a bar fight that left one man with cracked ribs.

Prior to this most recent domestic violence arrest, Miller’s last known interaction with the law was in May when he plead guilty to vandalism, in exchange for a charge of felony grand theft being dropped.

In 2019 he plead guilty to felony vandalism and misdemeanour violation of a protective stay-away order. Those charges stemmed from when he punched holes in the walls of his girlfriend’s home in La Habra. He also removed doors from the residence and smashed a large marble table. Miller was sentenced to a year in jail for those charges and three years of probation.

In 2018 Miller was arrested for a probation violation and was discovered to be in possession of a bulletproof vest, various weapons, human growth hormone and other performance enhancing drugs.

In 2017 Miller plead guilty to beating his girlfriend (the same woman whose home he later vandalized). For that he was sentenced to 124 days in jail.

In 2016 Miller was arrested on suspicion of vandalizing a tattoo parlor in Lake Forest. In 2015 he allegedly assaulted a sheriff’s deputy in Mission Viejo. That year he was also arrested in Laguna Beach and charged with simple misdemeanour battery and resisting arrest.

In 2014 Miller live streamed an hours-long standoff with armed police at his home in Mission Viejo. The police were there to arrest Miller on suspicion of domestic violence and stalking. Miller eventually surrendered to police.

In 2013 Miller was arrested twice on suspicion of domestic battery. He was given bail of $100,000. He was later taken into custody for violating a no-contact restraining order.

In 2012 Miller was found naked inside of a church in Mission Viejo. Miller had broken into that building and ransacked it, smashing picture frames and setting off fire extinguishers.

In 2011 Miller was charged with simple assault and false imprisonment after allegedly assaulting his sister at a house party.
