A wife uses social media to say her husband is an innocent man. 

Police say Renita Oliver called them asking for help.  On Monday, police blocked off their street for hours in an apparent stand-off. 

Oliver says police knew her husband was not there, and staged a stand off. 

In a YouTube video titled "RealTalk 7.24.13" Renita Oliver says she and her husband got into an argument.

'We go through husband and wife things just like every other married couple," said Oliver.

Police say at Oliver's request, they helped Oliver and her kids leave their home.  Police say Oliver told them her husband was locked in a room that had a gun in it. 

Police acted, and dispatched about 40 officers including an Emergency Response Unit.  They tried to get Oliver's husband Delon out of the house.

Delon Oliver wrote us a letter saying he was at Denny's eating  In the video, Renita Oliver backs that up, and says police overreacted.

"I even let them know.  I was even asked personally, do you believe he's not there, and told them yes I do believe he's no longer in the house," said Oliver.

We went to her house to hear her side of the story.  Nobody was home.

Lexington police spokesperson Sherelle Roberts disputes Oliver's story, but doesn't want to get into a he-said, she-said argument.

"We're here to help you, and when you ask for our help we certainly will help you, and after we've provided that help whatever you say after that, or whatever you do after that has nothing to do with the aid that was rendered to you at your request, and we'll continue to do the same going forward," said Roberts.

On Monday, the stand-off ended when police when into the Pennebaker Drive home, and found that Delon Oliver was not there.  Police say they don't know when he left, but he has two outstanding warrants from Jessamine County, and now two from Fayette County.

"No matter how many videos there are, no matter how many letters that are, when we see him again, it will be to serve those warrants," said Roberts.

Police ask Delon Oliver to turn himself in peacefully.
