Jason Miller will not have to spend any further time in jail after pleading guilty to several charges in a string of incidents in Orange County, Calif.

In a plea bargain, the 36-year-old resident of Mission Viejo pleaded guilty to a range of felony and misdemeanor charges, based multiple incidents from 2014-16.

Orange Country Superior Court judge Robert Fitzgerald sentenced Miller to three years probation and 100 days in jail, then gave Miller double credit for his 50 days served, meaning Miller walked out of the courtroom a free man.

“The good news for Jason is that his life is back on track,” Miller’s attorney, Cameron Talley, told The Orange Country Register. “He’s got his business back, and he’s traveling the world as a commentator.”

The incidents for which Miller was given a range of charges (including assault on a peace officer, battery, and resisting arrest), including an October 2014 incident in which he barricaded himself into his home and live-tweeted while authorities attempted to serve him an arrest warrant; a 2015 incident in Laguna Beach in which he allegedly kicked and spat at police officers; and another spitting incident with police in Costa Mesa last year.

In February, Miller was acquitted of felony domestic violence charges, stemming from a 2013 incident in which he was accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend in Mission Viejo.

“I take responsibility for my stupidity,” Miller told the Register. “You can’t rough up the police with no consequences.”
