Several mixed martial artists have been arrested over the years, but I don’t think any of them were arrested for what Jason “Mayhem” Miller allegedly did.
TMZ is reporting that Mayhem got slapped with assault and false imprisonment charges for putting his sister in a headlock at party in North Carolina.
UFC fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller was arrested last week for assault … TMZ has learned — after the fighter allegedly put his sister into a headlock and refused to let her go.
Law enforcement tells TMZ, Miller and his sis were at some house party in North Carolina — when his sister decided she wanted to take off.
According to law enforcement, Jason’s sister claims he wouldn’t let her leave — and put her into a headlock.
We’re told Jason’s sister managed to escape and notified the Chatham County Sheriff — who had Jason arrested later that evening for simple assault and false imprisonment.
I’m not gonna lie, it sounds pretty silly, but there’s not any video of the incident that I’m aware, so who knows if Mayhem was just joking around and took things a little too far (you know, Mayhem being Mayhem) or if he seriously got violent. That’s unclear, but at the very least, the incident upset his sister enough to call the police and have him arrested.
Mayhem has since posted bail and been released from jail.
