Mayhem Miller surrenders, in custody following standoff with SWAT team

And it appears the incident ended with no one getting hurt.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight, Jason Miller, was arrested earlier today (Thurs., Oct. 10, 2014) at his residence in Mission Viejo, Calif., following a near four-hour long standoff with local law enforcement (details).

According to KTLA 5, the deputies from the Orange County Sheriff's department were attempting to serve an arrest warrant for stalking when things escalated and Miller eventuality "barricaded" himself inside his home.

Soon thereafter, a SWAT team -- helicopters and all -- were called onto the scene.

As perhaps only "Mayhem" would do, he provided his Twitter followers up-to-the minute updates as to what was going outside of his home, claiming that an "army of police officers" had to be called in and waste valuable resources and money just to arrest him.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department was also doing some live tweeting of its own, and just a few minutes ago, sent out the final tweet revealing that Miller had indeed been arrested, but only after SWAT forced its way in through the front door.

Details are a bit sketchy as to why "Mayhem" -- who has seen plenty of brushes with Johny Law in the past -- was being served with a warrant due to stalking.

MMA Fighting reports that warrant was issued for a total of three felony counts and he will be held with a $200,000 bond.

As always, keep it tuned to as more details emerge from this still-developing story.
