The MMA fighter and host of MTV’s “Bully Beatdown” allegedly trashed Mission Hills Church in Mission Viejo, Calif., according to TMZ. Police say Miller sprayed the church with a fire extinguisher and scattered the place with CDs, books, and broken pictures.
When police arrived, they reportedly found Miller awake and coherent, but he was naked on a couch on the second floor. He was taken into custody for alleged burglary and is undergoing medical evaluation.
Miller was cut from the UFC in May after a backstage incident following a loss to C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146. Miller, who is unafraid of controversy and infamously sparked a brawl at Strikeforce: Nashville in 2010, and was arrested on first-degree burglary charges in 2005 (he was acquitted).
He had a bizarre Twitter exchange with Dana White on Saturday that may have led to his further depression:

Miller spoke openly in 2005 about his mental illness:
“There is this stigma with mental illness that you have to hide it, or be embarrassed about it. Embarrassed? yea right- I’ve embraced it, and got treatment,” Miller told MMA Fighting. “Something like 20 percent of people in the US have some form of mental illness. That’s a HUGE number. That means you definitely know someone with a problem, you might even be sitting on your ass reading this going “That Mayday guy is crazy. I don’t have any problem.” then sit on the toilet and suicide self. That’s something I don’t want to happen to anyone. Especially when there are so many programs in place to help people, nowadays. You wouldn’t ignore a sprained ankle, don’t ignore a strained brain. Okay, there’s my rant on that subject, what else?”
