As of this writing, he's managed to secure $845. Only $1,999,155 to go!

I guess it beats starting another ice bucket challenge.

Former Strikeforce and UFC veteran Jason Miller is hoping to raise money for his costly legal defense by way of GoFundMe, the popular online crowdfunding destination that asks regular folks to shell out some coin because ... pretty please?

Miller is "asking for your support in this non-traditional way" because he has "encountered some non-traditional problems," but insists that "any money you invest will be reinvested" into mixed martial arts (MMA). Just as soon as he frees his dog from the pound and hires a camera crew to document his experience.

The former "Bully Beatdown" host was arraigned on charges of resisting and obstructing an officer in Orange County Superior Court last week (details) in the wake of his three-hour standoff with local police and a tactical SWAT team in Mission Viejo, Calif., during which he refused to leave his home.

Miller was released on a $200,000 bond and will soon have to answer to the charges that led to his most recent arrest, which include several instances of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend. And since his track record isn't exactly squeaky-clean, he's going to need some big-time muscle on his defense team. That's where you come in.

Hey mister, can you spare a dime?
