Mixed Martial Arts Fighter 'Mayhem' Miller Fights the Law and Wins

The vandalism case against UFC's Jason "Mayhem" Miller, who was found nude inside a trashed Mission Viejo church, was dropped today after he represented himself in court.

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.

It would be nice to have the rest of the story to this article. There's a hole a mile wide. No use even reporting it unless you have further information. And that information should be readily available if we have a transparent justice system.

Since there was no dispute that the knucklehead damaged church property and trespassed. Just because someone found a loophole to get the charges dropped he should still be held accountable for the damage. The guy is still a jerkoff.

Wow, this article really deeply explains it well.

Consistent with most of what Patch reports, it is thin on content. Am I correct in assuming that most of the articles written are by college interns, etc. This reminds me of college newspaper journalism.

I have always known that the articles in the Patch are not meant to be a detailed report. They provide us with a brief synopsis to keep us aware of what is going in. I think that those of you that are so surprised that these articles are not in depth should read your news elsewhere.
