Jason Miller caused more ‘Mayhem’ yesterday when he barricaded himself in his home when the police showed up at his door regarding an arrest warrant for three separate felony charges including injured spouse, criminal contempt and stalking, resulting in a stand-off lasting several hours with a SWAT team.
The troubled former UFC and Strikeforce fighter, who also once had his own MTV show ‘Bully Beatdown’, posted on Twitter multiple times during the three hour stand-off informing his followers what was going on from his perspective.
“I need to tell everyone about the absolute waste of resources going on outside of my house right now,” he wrote on Twitter. “I am counting no less than 5 officers. they also have allocated use of a chopper, which cost approx. 12 Grand an Hour to operate, along with taking time away from REAL emergencies. They have threatened me with a dog bite and are amassing a great force that includes a spotter in the neighbors yard and an uncharasmaticman who continues to remind me that they are here serving a warrant for my arrest. I have not committed any crime, but yet i am forced HERE.
“FEARING FOR MY SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF MY DOG, @GATORHOTDOGDOG. All of this could have been avoided, had the state of California provided Mental health services for one single mother immigrant from the Philipines, who I know was well intentioned, but has a mental condition…now i have to pay a debt for her mistakes.”
And so it continued as he continued to post, at one point writing, “YEA, SO this is serious,” followed soon after by “I WISH YOU NO HARM. I respect the Police, but this is overkill, for something that would be settled with one piece of paperwork from OCBAIL.”
Thankfully the situation didn’t escalate any further and after three hours with a SWAT team outside, police helicopters flying overhead and the media and onlookers gathered in the street, ‘Mayhem’ finally turned himself over to the police peacefully.
Miller is now in jail on a $200,000 bond and is set to appear in court on October 14th, with an additional charge of .
Read the full incident report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department below.
“At approximately 10:00 a.m. this morning, deputies attempted to serve the outstanding arrest on Miller in the driveway of the residence located at 26262 Avenida Calidad. Miller fled on foot and retreated into the residence where he remained barricaded for approximately four hours. Numerous commands and directives were made to Miller in an attempt to gain his compliance and surrender to deputies.
As a result of Miller barricading himself in the residence and failure to comply with deupites’ directives to exit the residence, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team and the Crisis Negotiations Team (CNT) responded. After several unsuccessful attempts to establish verbal communication with Miller, SWAY and Hazardous Device Squad (HDS) investigators conducted a remote breach of the front door as a means of compromising the door locks. Immediately following the remote breach, Miller exited the residence through a rear door and surrendered to deputies by lying on the ground with his hands exposes. Miller was taken into custody uninjured during the incident.”
And here’s video footage of the moment when Miller was finally arrested and taken into custody.
