9 figures in combat sports who’ve been sent to the slammer
Being a professional fighter or notable name in the fight game certainly doesn’t suggest one will be more inclined to engage in criminal activity, but the high profile lifestyle that comes along with celebrity could prove difficult for anyone to handle and all but ensures that any brushes with the law will be shone under a pervasive public spotlight. Let’s take a closer look at some of the more prominent figures in the fight world to have been detained by the police— whether justly or not.
9) Jason “Mayhem” Miller
Jason Miller is a former mixed martial artist and UFC fighter who also starred in several movies and hosted the popular television series, Bully Beatdown. In 2012, he was arrested after being found asleep and naked in a church that he’d broken into. He was also arrested on several other occasions in incidents of domestic abuse, and even a standoff with the SWAT team.
