England Football star and Everton winger, Aaron Lennon 30, was taken away for mental assessment after the 20-minute stand-off with police on Sunday afternoon.
Lennon, who has not played for the club since February is now in hospital receiving treatment for ‘a stress-related illness,’ an Everton spokesman said.
Lennon, capped 21 times for England, signed to Everton from Tottenham Hotspurs for £4million in 2015 but has fallen out of favour in the last few months.

The flying winger, who has been known to party with female TOWIE stars Lauren Goodger and Maria Fowler, has had dealings with the police before.
In May last year, he was fined £660 after he was spotted speeding at 56mph in a 40mph zone in his Land Rover.
