Earlier this week we brought you exclusive details relating to Jason “Mayhem” Miller’s recent arrests, and we now have additional information directly from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. It appears that Miller has been accused of two counts of domestic violence under California Penal Code 273.5(a) PC. If convicted, the matter would be treated as a felony and would likely result in jail time. Most media outlets were aware of the alleged incident on August 3, 2013 (leading to his August 10, 2013 arrest) but according to court documents he is also being accused of an additional count of spousal/cohabitant abuse stemming from incident that took place on July 1, 2013. No details have emerged regarding the nature of this prior incident, but we will be working acquire this information shortly.
Miller is due in court once again tomorrow morning for his pre-trial hearing, at which time it should be determined whether or not the prosecutor has enough evidence to charge him with the counts that he has been accused of. SciFighting will be on hand at the hearing to bring you updated information as it emerges.
We have independently confirmed that the alleged victim has indeed been involved in prior incidents of domestic violence.
