A Pasadena man was charged Saturday with assault and reckless endangerment after he barricaded himself and fired a weapon inside his residence, according to Anne Arundel County police.

Steven Wayne Stanley, 60, faces first and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment charges, police said.

The incident occurred around 4:15 p.m. Friday, according to police, when they were called to the 7600 block of Oak Lane in Pasadena for a report of an overdose. There, family members told police that Stanley was agitated and that he had claimed to have taken an overdose of medication.

Stanley locked himself in the basement and had access to numerous firearms, according to police. After a brief conversation with officers, Stanley discharged a firearm inside his home. Police then called SWAT and a conflict negotiation team.

By 6:45 p.m., Stanley was taken into custody without further incident. No one was injured.

Stanley was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for an evaluation. Police said weapons were found inside the home.
