Jason “Mayhem” Miller is in trouble with the law again.

The former UFC fighter and MTV host was arrested early Friday morning on a charge of felony domestic violence, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to ESPN.

According to online inmate records, Miller was arrested at 3 a.m. Friday and is being held at Valley Jail in the Van Nuys neighborhood of Los Angeles. His bail is set at $1.385 million.

Miller, a California native, has been arrested more than a dozen times over the last decade.

In 2019, he took a plea deal in a felony vandalism case, was sentenced to one year in jail and then released in September of that year. This past May, Miller was sentenced to 364 days in jail and two years of probation for felony vandalism and attempted grand theft. In June, Miller posted an apology on Instagram to his supporters, saying he went to rehab several years ago and was rebuilding his life, but then “made some bad choices, for which I take full responsibility.”

“I lost my way and let you all down, and for that, I am sincerely sorry,” Miller wrote.

Miller, 40, is a former coach on The Ultimate Fighter and UFC competitor. He last fought in 2016 under the Venator FC banner in Italy. Miller, the former host of the MTV show “Bully Beatdown” and an actor in Kevin James’ film “Here Comes the Boom,” owns MMA wins over the likes of UFC Hall of Famer Kazushi Sakuraba, Robbie Lawler and Tim Kennedy.
