UFC middleweight Jason Miller was arrested in North Carolina on Aug. 7 on charges of simple assault and false imprisonment.

TMZ.com first reported the arrest on Friday. According to the report, “Mayhem” attended a house party with his sister, who attempted to leave the gathering. Miller allegedly prevented her from doing so by placing her in a headlock, the report said. Miller’s sister then reportedly escaped the hold and notified the Chatham County Sheriff. TMZ reports that Miller was arrested later that night.

The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office has documented the arrest on its website, confirming that the 30-year-old Californian was arrested by Sergeant Eric Lindley on charges of simple assault and false imprisonment. Miller was released on $5,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Chatham County District Court in Siler City, N.C., on Aug. 16.

In 2006, Miller was acquitted on charges of burglary and assault after he was accused of forcibly entering a girlfriend’s Hawaii apartment and assaulting another man in December 2005. A Circuit Court jury found Miller not guilty on charges of first-degree burglary, third-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal property damage.

“Mayhem” will serve as a coach opposite Michael Bisping on the upcoming 14th season of the UFC’s long-running reality show, “The Ultimate Fighter,” on Spike TV. Miller recently signed a new deal with the world’s largest promotion after his Strikeforce contract expired this year. The host of MTV’s “Bully Beatdown” reality series, Miller’s lone Octagon appearance came in 2005, when he suffered a unanimous decision defeat to future welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 52. Miller’s management could not immediately be reached for comment.
