The former fighter was supposed to be in attendance for the press conference for his upcoming fight with Mike Jackson.

But instead he ended up in jail after allegedly driving his car the wrong way across an embankment, according to KWQC.

It is believed police had to wake up Miletich once he came to a stop and asked him to put his car in park.
