Former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller has long been beset with troubles in his personal life. On Thursday, Miller faced another incident, as police apparently tried to serve an arrest warrant that ended up in a standoff with a SWAT team called to the scene.

Jason Mayhem MillerPolice on Thursday were called to the scene at the 26000 block of Avenida Calidad in Mission Viejo regarding a suspect who had barricaded himself in his home when deputies attempted to serve an arrest warrant. KTLA 5 later confirmed with Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department that Jason Miller was the individual that had barricaded himself in his home.

Orange County Sheriff’s officials confirmed that a SWAT team was called to the sight.

At the time of publication, the situation was still ongoing, and Miller had been tweeting for a couple of hours about the incident. His final tweet before publication pointed to an ever-escalating police presence, while he was calling for a “peaceful solution,” leaving it unclear why he had barricaded himself in the home:

Tweets from Miller’s timeline don’t exactly explain the situation, but includes some detail as to what happened from his perspective:







Miller has been in and out of trouble with police throughout his career. He most recently was arrest under allegations of domestic abuse and for violating a court issued “stay-away” order. will continue to follow the story and provide updates as warranted.

    Man, I’ve always liked Mayhem, even before his first UFC fight with GSP. He can be an extremely articulate, funny, and thoughtful person, but the last couple of years (basically since the incident with Shields and his camp, he has been so strange and unstable. I was with him on the UFC not paying for his knee, but jeez the last 16 months have been INSANE. Just hope he gets help or somehow straightens out whatever his issues are, even if he never fought again I just miss the guy that was on Ellis’s show and tweeted things that actually made you think, instead of all this nonsense and conspiracy crap. Hope u somehow find peace mayhem.

      American police dressed like a MILITARY doesn’t feel like a conspiracy to you. Wake up brother!

        I see nothing wrong with police dressed like the military. But i understand you liberals need something to complain about since your president is one of the worst you need to divert attention.

      • Muttley76

        No, SWAT teams dress in a tactical manner, that’s needed for the majority of what they deal with. Mayhem has been one of my favorite fighters and personalities for a VERY long time, but when you run and refused to be served (knowing they aren’t going to leave), and force the situation to escalate you are in the wrong. Still hope Jason gets it all figured out, but this is cut and dried who was in the wrong. I understand disputing the teason for the warrant, but that has nothing to do with how he reacted to them serving the warrant itself.

        Never get the police in involved unless there is no other choice. Someone or their dog could get killed otherwise.

    I doubt miller will feel better for the tax payers when he receives the bill for that helicopter, officers, and armored vehicle.
    It’s nuts that cops are such pussies these days that they’ll bombared a crime scene with ridiculous amounts of officers and weaponry , and then have the gull to send the bill for such over kill.

    • earlsimmons

      Another typical liberal here, move along people.

      • MikeMcK

        What’s the deal with you trying to make everything a political argument?
        You do reLize the majority of Americans couldn’t tell you the differences between conservatives and liberals right? I could only assume assume that would be more widespread amongst people on an MMA forum.
        Btw is it a liberal idea that government shouldn’t charge us for things that we already pay taxes for?

      It’s nuts how you can call someone a pussy while sitting in anonimity behind your computer, I believe that makes you………A PUSSY

      • MikeMcK

        You have to love the irony of someone calling you a pussy on the Internet, because you called someone else a pussy on the Internet.
        The conversation was being had on the Internet, through my computer. That is why I said it on here.
        Police used to be honered because they put their life on the line for the innocent public. They now choose to protect themselves above and beyond all others. That’s why we hear of the public being shot because an officer got scared. It used to be that you’d have 10 cops die before they’d risk they life of an innocent. Now a room of innocents will get killed to protect a cop from being hit.
        Of course all officers are not like this, but until they start calling the ones who are to task, they all get that label.
