Former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller was arrested Monday in Mission Viejo , Calif., after allegedly breaking into a church and vandalizing it with a fire extinguisher.  Police responding to the call reportedly found Miller sitting on a couch, naked but coherent.  He was taken into custody and charged with suspicion of burglary, and is undergoing a mental evaluation.

Miller found limited success in his time in the Octagon but was considered one of the sport's most colorful personalities.  He was also the host of MTV's popular reality show "Bully Beatdown."  Miller publicly retired from competition in May of this year after a lackluster performance at UFC 146 led to him to being fired.  Since then, he's tried his hand at stand-up comedy, and last week he engaged in an argument with UFC president Dana White over Twitter, where he said "Kill yourself @danawhite we are all begging you."
