Jason Miller has been arrested for felony domestic violence.

MMA Fighting has confirmed with a media relations representative of the Los Angeles Police Department that Miller’s arrest—first reported by TMZ—occurred early morning Friday in Los Angeles. Miller, 40, is currently in custody with his bail set at $1,385,000.

According to TMZ, officers from the LAPD Van Nuys Division reportedly responded to a call from a woman allegedly involved in an altercation with Miller. Miller allegedly resisted arrest and had to be tasered before officers were able to apprehend him.

He is now incarcerated at the LAPD Valley Jail in Los Angeles.

Miller, a former UFC and Strikeforce fighter who most recently competed for Venator FC in 2016, has had numerous run-ins with the law including two recent incidents that resulted in him serving jail time. In July 2019, he received a one-year prison sentence for vandalism and violating a protective order. Earlier this year, he received a one-year prison sentence for vandalism and attempted grand theft. His time served for that sentence dated back to August 2020. It is not known if Miller was released early or if his jail time ended just recently.

Miller also pleaded guilty to a domestic violence charge in 2017.
