Former MMA star Jason "Mayhem" Miller turned a ceramic tile into a weapon during a crazy fight with cops Friday ... but ultimately lost the battle when cops broke out the taser.
Officials tell TMZ Sports ... the Orange County Sheriff's Dept. was called to the Southern California home early Friday morning to respond to a disturbance between the ex-UFC star and 2 women.
When cops arrived, Miller was "aggressive and uncooperative" -- and unleashed a crazy attack at the officers ... throwing a ceramic tile and threatening to attack with a fire extinguisher and a metal pole.
After ignoring numerous orders to settle down -- cops hit Miller with the taser ... and then an 8 MINUTE struggle ensued.
Eventually, cops won ... and Miller was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer.
Miller -- who once hosted a show on MTV -- was booked and is being held on $50,000 bail.
The women at the home were interviewed -- but were uncooperative with the investigation.
The entire incident sounds eerily similar to another incident back in March -- when Miller grappled with FOUR COPS who tried to arrest him at a restaurant.
