Perhaps unsurprisingly, Jason Miller is in trouble again.

The former UFC and Strikeforce fighter is currently in a standoff with police at his home in Mission Viejo, California. According to KTLA, an alleged stalking at his home prompted an arrest warrant, and the incident soon required a call to the SWAT team:

Police were called to the scene at the 26000 block of Avenida Calidad regarding a barricaded suspect around 10:30 a.m., Lt. Jeff Hallock with the Orange County Sheriff's Department said.

Deputies were trying to serve an arrest warrant for alleged stalking at the home when the situation escalated into a SWAT call, Hallock said.

As if that was not enough, 'Mayhem' has been tweeting everything while barricaded inside his house:

MMA Fighting's Shaun Al-Shatti later confirmed that he's still locked into a standoff with authorities:

We will provide continuing coverage of this situation as more information becomes available.

UPDATE AT 4:23 PM ET: According to a police lieutenant, Mayhem is also wanted for alleged domestic violence.
