Ex-MTV host and MAA fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller lived tweeted a standoff Thursday with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, the SWAT team and even a bomb squad before surrendering to police.
“I need to tell everyone about the absolute waste of resources going on outside of my house right now,” he tweeted. “I am counting no less than five officers.”
Miller’s rant on Twitter began Thursday morning when police attempted to serve a warrant at his Mission Viejo, Calif. home for alleged instances of stalking and domestic violence. Lt. Jeff Hallock of the O.C. Sheriff’s Department said Miller went back into his house around 1 p.m. PT and was unresponsive for hours.
“He retreated into the house, was uncooperative with any of the commands by sheriff’s deputies, and based on that, we established a perimeter, called out the SWAT team and now we’re in the process of establishing communication with him inside the house,” Hallock told Los Angeles news station KTLA.
Police broke down Miller’s back door shortly after 2 p.m. PT, at which point Miller surrendered. He is now in custody.
“Suspect surrendered in back of residence following remote front door breach,” tweeted the O.C. Sheriff’s department following the incident.
“You will pay for the damage to my home,” wrote Miller in his final tweet before surrendering.
The former TV personality and fighter, who goes by the nickname “Mayhem” in the MMA community, hosted MTV’s unscripted revenge show “Bully Beatdown” from 2009 to 2012. He also appeared in filmmaker Morgan Spurlock‘s documentary series “A Day in the Life.”
Miller had previously been arrested on domestic violence charges in August 2013.
