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:
Miller criticized the SWAT presence and their waste of resources:
Miller also indicated a fear for his safety:
Perhaps most strangely, Miller invited his Twitter followers to witness the standoff themselves:
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.
