A Greene County man is undergoing psychiatric treatment after a four hour stand-off with Sheriff's authorities.

Investigators say 41-year-old Gary Burgess barricaded himself inside his home Sunday night. Authorities went to his home to arrest him for a domestic dispute. Burgess refused to come out and threatened to shoot himself.

Negotiators finally talked him into coming out. No one was injured. Burgess is charged with destruction of property.
