Looks like it was attempted burglary.
This morning (August 11, 2013), Jason 'Mayhem' Miller was arrested in Orange County, California and is being held at the Central Jail Complex in Santa Ana, California. Initially details were sketchy as under California Government Code 6254(f)(1), the only way to receive an arrest report is to ask for one in person.
What we did know was that he was being held on a $50,000 bail.
MMA Mania's CJ Tuttle has learned from a source within the Orange County Sheriff's Department that Miller was arrested and charged with Attempted Burglary. Under California Penal Code 459 PC, Burglary is defined as "entering a structure with intent to commit a felony or (a petty theft) once inside."
Burglary is considered a "wobbler" under Penal Code 459 PC. This means that depending on the circumstances of the case and the individual's criminal history, they can either be charged with a misdemeanor or felony. If they are found guilty of a felony, it's a sentence of up to six years in a California State Prison.
There are some details to note regarding this case.
Miller was arrested on August 6, 2011, for allegedly assaulting his sister. The official charge was simple assault and false imprisonment. They apparently were horsing around at a party in North Carolina when he put her in a headlock and refused to let go. He was released under a $5,000 secured bond.
This also isn't the first time that Jason Miller has been arrested on a charge related to burglary. On August 13, 2012, Miller was arrested on suspicion of burglary charges after breaking into the Mission Hills Church in Mission Viejo, California. The charges were later dropped after the pastor came to Miller's defense.
If the attempted burglary charge sticks, it's likely the prosecutor will reference his previous arrests to make it a felony charge for a longer prison sentence.
