Lt.

Miller surrendered to the representatives of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at approximately 2 p.m. yesterday following a “remote front door breach.” The Full Orange County Sheriff Department release reads:

“At approximately 10:00 a.m. this morning, deputies attempted to serve the outstanding arrest on Miller in the driveway of the residence located at 26262 Avenida Calidad. Miller fled on foot and retreated into the residence where he remained barricaded for approximately four hours. Numerous commands and directives were made to Miller in an attempt to gain his compliance and surrender to deputies.

“As a result of Miller barricading himself in the residence and failure to comply with deupites’ directives to exit the residence, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team and the Crisis Negotiations Team (CNT) responded. After several unsuccessful attempts to establish verbal communication with Miller, SWAY and Hazardous Device Squad (HDS) investigators conducted a remote breach of the front door as a means of compromising the door locks. Immediately following the remote breach, Miller exited the residence through a rear door and surrendered to deputies by lying on the ground with his hands exposes. Miller was taken into custody uninjured during the incident.”

According to MMAfighting.com, Jason “Mayhem” Miller is held on $200,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on October 14th.
