A misdemeanor vandalism charge was dismissed today against mixed martial arts fighter Jason ``Mayhem'' Miller, who was found nude in August in a Mission Viejo church.
Miller, 31, was accused of breaking at least one picture frame and damaging a propane tank and other items while spray-painting inside Mission Hills Church, causing at least $400 in damage, according to Orange County district attorney's spokeswoman Farrah Emami.
The vandalism charge was dismissed at his arraignment today in a Newport Beach courtroom, where Miller represented himself, according to court records.
Messages left with the prosecutor, Tina Patel, were not immediately returned.
Miller was arrested Aug. 13 after the church's pastor called Orange County sheriff's deputies to report he'd arrived to find books and CDs scattered throughout the Alicia Parkway church, along with broken picture frames and fire extinguisher dust on the first and second floors, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino.
Miller, who was an Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor and has been known to train in Orange County, was found on the second floor without any clothes on, though he did have some sort of cloth wrapped around him, Emami said.
