Barricaded Suspect Arrested for Outstanding Warrant
MISSION VIEJO, Calif. – (October 9, 2014) – On Thursday, October 9, 2014, Orange County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jason Nicholas Miller, 33, Mission Viejo, on an outstanding felony arrest warrant for domestic violence, stalking and violation of a court order as well as obstructing/delaying a peace officer resulting from today’s incident.
At approximately 10:00 a.m. this morning, deputies attempted to serve the outstanding arrest warrant 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 deputies’ 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, SWAT 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 exposed. Miller was taken into custody uninjured during the incident.
Miller was booked into Orange County Jail on the outstanding arrest warrant and obstructing/delaying a peace officer. He is currently being held on $200K bail and expected to appear in court on Tuesday, October 14, 2014.
