Jason 'Mayhem' Miller avoids jail, charges dropped for alleged church break-in

The charges levied against Jason "Mayhem" Miller stemming from an arrest earlier this year, where he was found naked in a church, have been dropped after the case against the flamboyant mixed martial artist (MMA) was dismissed.

Jason Miller can breathe a bit easier these days after charges stemming from an arrest earlier this year were dropped today (Nov. 21, 2012) by the Orange County Superior Court in California, according to MMA Fighting.

"Mayhem" was arrested back on Aug. 13 of this year after allegedly breaking into a church and going wild with a fire extinguisher, all while in his birthday suit. According to the report, the case was dismissed altogether and the incident has since been removed from Miller's record.

Miller went zero for two (0-2) in his previous stint with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), dropping back-to-back fights against Michael Bisping and C.B. Dollaway. After his loss to "The Doberman," Miller was cut from the promotion and hasn't competed in mixed martial arts (MMA) since.

He has, however, been rubbing elbows with a couple of Hollywood heavy-hitters as Miller had a small role in the MMA/UFC inspired film "Here Comes The Boom," which starred Kevin James and Bas Rutten and was produced by Adam Sandler.

Miller went on a rampage on an recent appearance on "The MMA Hour" while promoting the film, refusing to break out of his "Lucky Patrick" character, which led many to believe the charismatic fighter was battling some mental issues.

Weeks later, "Mayhem" revealed it was all for grins and giggles.

All's well that ends well.
