Mayhem Miller pleads not guilty to charges of resisting arrest and obstructing an officer

Esther Lin

Jason Miller found himself in trouble with the law, yet again, a few weeks ago as he was smack dab in the middle of a standoff with police and a SWAT team last week in his home in Mission Viejo, California.

Full details here.

"Mayhem," of course, was live tweeting all of the action before he eventually surrendered to authorities.

Miller (via MMA Junkie) appeared in Orange County Superior Court for an arraignment earlier today (Mon., Oct. 20, 2014) and issued a plea of "not guilty" for resisting and obstructing officer charge. According to the report, "Mayhem" was released from jail seven days after the incident via $200,000 bond.

The three-hour standoff -- which began due to a warrant out for Miller's arrest for stalking -- is the latest in an alarming number of incidents involving the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight.

In 2012, "Mayhem" was arrested for breaking into a church (of all places) and vandalizing it all while in his birthday suit. In 2013, Miller was apprehended once again on accusations of domestic violence.

Continuing with odd behavior from Miller, he also once trashed The MMA Hour set, got into an altercation outside of the cage with Uriah Hall (video) and even told his former boss, Dana White, to kill himself.

Though White has often responded to Mayhem's comments harshly, he has said he hoped Jason would get some much-needed help. And judging by the series of events that have occurred over the last few years involving the troubled fighter, maybe the UFC president was on to something.

As always, keep it tuned to for more updates on this still-developing situation.
