Video: Helicopter captures footage of Jason 'Mayhem' Miller being arrested by small army of SWAT police

A dozen police officers, a shirtless mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, and one confused pooch. Is normal.

When former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 coach Jason Miller said there was an army of cops surrounding his home in Mission Viejo, Calif., he wasn't kidding.

"Mayhem" was live tweeting his standoff with police on Thursday (Oct. 9, 2014), which included multiple patrol cars, a black SWAT armored vehicle, an ambulance, and other police-type vehicles, as well as a crisis negotiation team and bomb squad, according to KTLA.

Sounds legit.

Better to err on the side of caution, I suppose, as Miller has already racked up multiple run-ins with Johnny Law. Some of them minor, some a bit more serious. That, coupled with his history of bizarre public behavior, prompted Orange County Sheriff's Department to come heavy in its attempt to serve an arrest warrant for stalking and domestic violence.

The former Bully Beatdown host surrendered without incident after cops raided his home and is currently being held on $200,000 bail, with a court date of Oct. 14.

Here's more from yesterday's incident:
