Former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller was live tweeting an apparent standoff with police officers from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department on Thursday afternoon.

Sherdog.com confirmed with a representative from the Orange County Sheriff’s department that Miller was uncooperative and barricaded himself in his California home when officers arrived to serve an arrest warrant for an alleged stalking.

According to a report from KTLA.com, police arrived at the 26000 block of Avenida Calidad in Mission Viejo, Calif., at approximately 10:30 a.m. When Miller refused to cooperate and barricaded himself inside, the situation escalated into a SWAT call. According to the Twitter account of the Orange County Sheriff's Department, Miller was taken into custody by law enforcement authorities on Thursday afternoon.

"Suspect surrendered in back of residence following remote front door breach. Suspect IN CUSTODY," the tweet read.

Miller has not fought since 2012, when he lost a unanimous decision to C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146. He was arrested later that year on burglary charges for allegedly breaking into and vandalizing a church in California. A year later, Miller was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.

Miller provided running updates on the incident via his Twitter account, which can be read below.
