It's been a rough day for MMA fighter and former host of MTV show Bully Beatdown Jason "Mayhem" Miller. At around 2 p.m. today (October 9), the fighter was taken into custody by law enforcement after live tweeting a standoff.

According to Deadline, police in Orange County, California, went to arrest Miller for domestic violence and stalking when the ex-TV personality ran back into his home and barricaded himself inside. SWAT arrived on the scene and Miller began to send out tweets, claiming the whole ordeal is a "waste of resources."

"i need to tell everyone about the absolute waste of resources going on outside of my house right now," his first tweet read. "i am counting no less than 5 officers." Miller went on to explain that a helicopter was being used and that he did not commit any crimes.

Apparently Miller was due in court this morning, but he claims he overslept and woke up to a bunch of officers. "ALL THIS because I wanted to help raise a young boy into a man, and his mama wenr off her meds, and an ambitious DA thinks mayhem is BAD," he tweeted. Bleacher Report covered Miller's court appearance in August in which the fighter was being charged with physically assaulting and urinating on a woman, but reports have not clarified whether the arraignment and warrant being served today are related.

"I WISH YOU NO HARM," he tweeted. "I respect the Police, but this is overkill, for something that would be settled with one piece of paperwork from OCBAIL."

Miller was the host of Bully Beatdown from 2009 to 2012.
