Publish date:

Former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller live-tweeted a standoff between him and the Orange County Sheriff's Department Thursday.

Miller was taken into custody nearly four hours after police first arrived at his home. 

According to KTLA, the police "were trying to serve an arrest warrant for alleged stalking." The SWAT team was called when Miller refused to cooperate with the sheriffs, Lt. Jeff Hallock told KTLA.

There are three warrants out for Miller's arrest, according to the Los Angeles Times

Hallock said the sheriff's department attempt to serve the warrant around 10 a.m. PT. Miller's first tweet about the incident came short after 11 a.m. PT. 

One Twitter user told Miller her children's school was placed on lockdown due to the incident at Miller's home. 

The sheriff's department also posted updates of the situation on Twitter.

In the tweets, Miller criticizes the sheriff's department for their "absolute waste of resources" and says he wants "a peaceful solution."

Miller was charged with misdemeanor vandalism in 2012 after he allegedly broke into a church, broke a picture frame and spray-painted the inside of the church. He was found nude by the church's pastor. The charges were later dismissed

Miller was also arrested in August 2013 on suspicion of domestic violence.

Miller, 33, retired two years ago, but said in January he was nearing a comeback.
