Shelby County Sheriff’s Office ends barricade situation
SHELBY COUNTY — The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office has ended what appeared to be a barricade situation.
We’re told the fire department was responding to a report of an overdose at a home in the 7300 block of English Drive.
Authorities say a man was distraught over a recent separation with his wife and took too many anti-anxiety pills.
The man in the home refused to come outside.
A robot was sent into the home where the man was found to be sleeping.
The man was taken to the hospital to be examined.
A spokesperson for the SCSO said the home has a history of residents who declare themselves sovereign citizens who do not believe laws apply to them, but those people are no longer living in the home.
