      ORIGINAL: Lucas County sheriff's deputies are at the scene of a standoff situation in the 8000 block of Airport Highway.

      Authorities at the scene say that a man has barricaded himself inside a home. Police told our reporter that the man was earlier involved in a crash and arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He was later released and his wife took him home, where he barricaded himself.
