MMA fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller was arrested yesterday (Oct. 9) in his Orange County, California home after a bizarre standoff with police that included Miller's live tweeting about the SWAT team outside his door. Sheriff's deputies initially arrived at Miller's home around 9:50 a.m. to arrest him on warrants of domestic violence and stalking. Authorities say Miller refused to comply and barricaded himself inside the home. When SWAT teams were called in, Miller began to post about his situation on Twitter. Among the many tweets sent by Miller, the former UFC star claimed that he hadn't done anything wrong: https://twitter.com/mayhemmiller/status/520275592407969792 https://twitter.com/mayhemmiller/status/520276279120392192 https://twitter.com/mayhemmiller/status/520276631232184321 Miller criticized the SWAT presence and their waste of resources: https://twitter.com/mayhemmiller/status/520275954137300992 Miller also indicated a fear for his safety: https://twitter.com/mayhemmiller/status/520279158078078976 https://twitter.com/mayhemmiller/status/520279306812268544 Perhaps most strangely, Miller invited his Twitter followers to witness the standoff themselves: https://twitter.com/mayhemmiller/status/520277699672412161 The standoff finally came to an end around 2 p.m., when SWAT members forced their way through the front door. Miller surrendered and was booked into jail on the outstanding warrant charges and a charge of obstructing a peace officer. Miller is currently being held on a $200,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 14.
