Here’s something you don’t see every day:

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

According to KTLA, the situation escalated to a SWAT call. Police ID’d the suspect as MMA fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller. And this isn’t his first run-in with the law:

Miller was charged in 2012 in connection with the a vandalism incident in which he allegedly broke into a church and caused an estimated $400 worth of damage, according to the Los Angeles Times, which also reported he was discovered sleeping naked on a couch. The charge was dropped later that year, the Associated Press reported.

About a year later, he was also arrested on suspicion of domestic violence outside his Mission Viejo home in August 2013, according to the Orange County Register.

Today, Miller decided to his followers to a personal account of his confrontation with the police:
