LIVE OAK, CALIF. -    Sutter County Sheriff's Deputies arrested a Live Oak man following an hour and a half standoff that stemmed from a domestic violence incident.

Sheriff's Officials say 23-year-old Matthew Kemp was a suspect in crimes that occurred on January 13th in Live Oak.  They say when Deputies tried to arrest Kemp Thursday at a home on Collier Court, he ran inside.  They believed he had a shotgun in the home, so the Special Enforcement Detail responded along with the Sheriff's Hostage Negotiations Team.

After an hour and a half of negotiations, Kemp surrendered without incident.   

He was booked into the Sutter County Jail on charges that include felony domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, and intimidating a witness. 

Bail is set at $100,000. Kemp is scheduled to appear in court on January 25th at 3 p.m.
