Just moments after I filed this story about the Twitter beef between Dana Whiteand Jason “Mayhem” Miller, TMZ reported that Miller had found himself in a bit of trouble:
Recently-axed UFC fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller was arrested today in Orange County, TMZ has learned — after allegedly breaking into a church, spraying a fire extinguisher all over the place, and getting buck naked.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the O.C. Sheriff’s Office received a call early this morning from the Mission Hills Church in Mission Viejo about a possible burglary in progress.
When the deputies arrived, we’re told they found the first and second floors covered in white fire extinguisher spray. Cops say the place was also trashed — scattered CDs, books, and broken pictures.
When officers reached the second floor, we’re told they found Miller naked on some couch — totally awake and coherent.
This is unfortunate news, obviously. And it seems as though White may have been more accurate than we thought possible when he said the following:
And as the tweeting went on, you saw – that kid’s on medicine, he has some issues, and the last thing I want to do is have that kid more bummed out and depressed than he already is.
I don’t want to jump to conclusions, and I’m not going to. But if TMZ’s reporting is accurate—and they usually are, despite obviously being a very tabloid-y operation—then it appears White was correct when he talked about Miller’s current issues.
The only thing we can do is hope Miller gets the help he apparently needs.
