MMA Fighter Jason 'Mayhem' Miller is not having a great day. Last night he claimed that the late rapper ODB had taken over his Twitter account, and right now, he's tweeting about his standoff with the Orange County Sheriff's Department. He's narrating the drama as it unfolds live from his place in Mission Viejo, where police showed up around 10:30 a.m., according to OCSD Lt. Jeff Hallock. They attempted to serve a warrant to Miller for stalking allegations, but the situation escalated as Miller barricaded himself in the home and then began to tweet about it, KTLA reports. There are two additional warrants out for Miller according to the L.A. Times—one for domestic violence and another for criminal contempt.

He then tweeted that he feared for not only his own safety, but that of his dog, who has his own Twitter account, @gatorhotdogdog with 7,800 followers.

The dog hasn't had anything to Tweet since taking a nap in August.

From Miller's disjointed tweets, it appears he was trying to mentor a young boy when the boy's mother went off her meds and decided he was a bad guy.

He also Tweeted he had some paperwork that would clear things up at his office at Vapor Labs in Irvine, but he couldn't get to it last night, and couldn't leave this morning because of the officers outside his home.

This is not the first time that Miller has had a run-in with the law. In 2011, TMZ reported that Miller was arrested for putting his sister in a really long headlock. In 2012, he was accused of breaking into and vandalizing a church, then taking a naked nap on a couch inside, L.A. Times reports. That charge was later dropped. In 2013, he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, according ot the OC Register. The woman had sustained bruising on her arms and legs and cuts to her face.

Most recently, Miller is still inside the home and tweeted about an armored vehicle arriving to the situation.
