Orange County Sheriff’s Department officials were called early Friday after receiving a call about a woman screaming inside of Miller’s home. Officers claim Miller was being violent, threatening them with a ceramic tile, a fire extinguisher and a metal pole for about eight minutes before the former MMA fighter was subdued with a taser and taken into custody.
