Former UFC fighter Jason 'Mayhem' Miller is currently locked in a standoff with local police and SWAT officers at his home in Mission Viejo, California after being served with multiple warrants on Thursday.

Miller took to his Twitter as soon as the incident started launching into a tirade about 'the absolutely waste of resources' going on outside of his house as police arrived to issue the arrest warrant.

According to the Orange County warrant database, Miller is being sought for three separate felony charges including injure spouse, criminal contempt and stalking with an expected bail to be set at $200,000. 

Lieutenant Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff's department also confirmed to KTLA that the warrants were being served to Miller and he was the person currently barricaded in his home in the standoff with police.

Several police vehicles, SWAT team and ambulances were on the scene during the standoff. Miller has continued to tweet throughout the incident, which can been seen below.

Miller has had several run-ins with the law during the course of his MMA career.  In 2005 he was arrested on burglary and assault charges in Hawaii, although he was eventually acquitted during a trial the following year.  Miller was arrested in 2012 after allegedly being found naked after vandalizing a local church.  Those charges were eventually dropped as well.  Miller was also arrested several times in connection with alleged domestic violence cases also.  Miller retired from active competition in 2012.
Orange County sheriffs also confirmed as of the time of this publication that crisis negotiators are on the scene attempting contact with Miller inside the residence.

It appears the standoff between Miller and police has come to an end after the fighter surrendered himself to authorities according to the Orange County sheriff's department.

Miller was taken into custody and will now be remanded to a local jail for processing.
