‘Mayhem’ Miller Held on $200,000 Bail, Faces 4 Charges Following Police Standoff

By Tristen Critchfield Oct 10, 2014

After live tweeting a standoff with Orange County police on Thursday, UFC and Strikeforce veteran Jason "Mayhem" Miller was eventually taken into custody and arrested for a total of four charges.

Three of those came from an outstanding felony arrest warrant: domestic violence, stalking and violation of a court order. The fourth charge, obstructing/delaying a peace officer, came as a result of Thursday’s incident.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department provided details of Miller’s arrest, as well as the mug shot shown above, in a recent release:

At approximately 10:00 a.m. this morning, deputies attempted to serve the outstanding arrest warrant 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 deputies’ 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, SWAT 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 exposed. Miller was taken into custody uninjured during the incident.

Miller was booked into the Orange County Jail on the four charges and is being held on $200,000 bail. He is expected to appear in court on Oct. 14.

Fox 11 Los Angeles was able to capture footage of the arrest, which can be viewed below:
