Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller stood in court with his trademark pink mohawk on Wednesday and was sentenced to three years probation and 100 days in jail for a list of felonies involving multiple clashes with the Orange County police. Miller who is 36 years old, plead guilty to about a dozen felonies and misdemeanors which included assault on a peace officer, battery and resisting arrest.

Talley reported that Miller has two strikes on his record now and could have some serious consequences if he violates his probation. According to Miller’s lawyer the former champion MMA fighter had lost his job as a commentator for Fox Sports and became engulfed in depression after allegations of domestic violence with his ex-girlfriend in his Mission Viejo home in 2013. In February a jury acquitted him of those charges that seemed to have triggered his problems.

But most people are not subject to the careful scrutiny that Mel Gibson received before charges are filed. Unfortunately, assault and battery charges are often filed on nothing more than a simple verbal allegation, such as “he punched me.”
