Former NFL defensive end and linebacker Shawne Merriman is home after being taken to a Los Angeles hospital Sunday night.

The former San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills star was transported to Cedars Sinai Medical Center for an undisclosed "medical emergency," officer Mark Ro of the Los Angeles Police Department told Ro said the Los Angeles Fire Department actually transported Merriman, and no criminal report was filed.

The Los Angeles Times, which first reported the incident, later added that Merriman overdosed and ingested an unspecified combination of alcohol and drugs. Citing law enforcement sources, the newspaper reported that Merriman was at a nightclub called The Colony at around 9:30 p.m. when the medical call was placed.
