Jason Miller är en veteran i MMA som synts i allt från UFC till DREAM, men även haft en TV-karriär på MTV som programledare för TV-programet Bully. Hans liv på senare tid har varit en nedåtgående spiral av incidenter som slutade med att den före detta fightern nu sitter i fängelse.
Miller har inte postat något på sociala medier sen 2017, men igår postade han ett långt meddelande på facebook där han inte bara reflekterar över senaste tiden utan även ber om ursäkt.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve ventured onto the information superhighway called the internet, and the last time I was here it was a very different place, and I was a very different person.
It goes without saying that I was acting like a madman for a good stretch of my post fight life, and I can’t make excuses for my behavior. I can, however, explain that I wasn’t in the right state of mind for a very long time, as evidenced by my constant war with law enforcement, destruction of public property, domestic disturbances and evading, but eventually I was caught, and forced to take a long, long look in the mirror. I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to everyone that I negatively affected during the dark times, including friends, family, law enforcement and the kalt, whom I have abandoned for far too long.
What I came to realize was that the choices I was making were not ones that could produce the type of lifestyle that I want to live. Some refer to it as “growing up,” but I prefer the term “evolution.”
I’d like all of you to reserve judgement on myself and everyone involved with the ongoing drama until things are settled. To be certain, there are many unanswered questions in my life, but the reason I am confident to reemerge into the light of public sphere is that I am confident of my sanity and sobriety. Somewhere in the last couple of years, I figured out that you can’t live like a rock star anarchist for too long without being killed or landing for a long stretch in prison. Luckily I have avoided either fate, and have emerged on the other side of a humbling journey, ready to make Mayhem great again, and be of service to my fellow man.
I thank you all for your continued support and look forward to making the future with you all. God Bless!”
Den 38-åriga fightern har haft flera incidenter med lagen sedan han släpptes från sitt UFC-kontrakt. Allt från att ha slagit sin flickvän till en incident där han hittats naken i en kyrka och nu senast blev det fängelsestraff för vandalism.
