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.
