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.

Stronger winds and low humidity over dry fuels will result in very high fire danger across northern California Wednesday and Thursday. We'll be very hot Wednesday, but a welcome drop in high temperatures is ahead for Thursday. Smoke will continue to bring big impacts to our air quality over the next several days, and temperatures will heat back up from Friday into Saturday.
