Trouble continues to follow former UFC middleweight Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller as he was arrested last week at a hotel following an altercation with a fan.
TMZ first reported the incident and arrest.
Miller, 42, was arrested after he choked a man at the Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood on Aug 29. According to police a fan went up to Miller, but a verbal altercation took place, and Miller allegedly grabbed and put the man in a chokehold.
TMZ reports that security got involved and helped the fan get way from Miller. Law enforcement was contacted but Miller had left before they arrived thus avoiding arrest.
Until the next day. Miller returned to the same place, was recognized, and police were called. Miller was arrested and released a short time later.
This incident comes just months after Miller was released from prison off domestic violence and resisting arrest charges along with prior convictions. He was released in May 2023.
Miller (23-10) has not fought professionally since 2016 where he took a fight in Venator FC. The former UFC, Dream and Strikeforce middleweight had a lengthy professional career that began in 2001. He fought names such as Jake Shields, Michael Bisping, Kazushi Sakuraba, and Tim Kennedy to name a few.
