ROCK HILL, S.C. — Authorities say a man wanted on arrest warrants for torturing dogs barricaded himself in a South Carolina home and surrendered after a SWAT team entered the residence.

Rock Hill police tell news outlets 26-year-old Tevin Anderson ran from a traffic stop with a gun in his hand into his girlfriend’s home Wednesday. He was taken to a hospital because he apparently swallowed something before his arrest.

Police Capt. Mark Bollinger says Anderson is expected to be charged with felonies related to drugs, weapons and money seized.

The Herald of Rock Hill cites court records as saying Anderson had outstanding warrants for his arrest on animal cruelty charges and other offenses. Prosecutor Aaron Hayes says Anderson will be jailed without bond after he gets out of the hospital.

It is unclear if Anderson has a lawyer.
