When deputies arrived, they saw the suspect assaulting a woman. He then barricaded himself with the woman inside the home and would not come out.

Instead he told police he was armed and refused to follow their orders.

Crisis negotiators worked for more than two hours, crisis negotiators attempted to defuse the situation while the suspect continued to walk around the home with a shotgun.

Since the man would not follow deputies orders, a special response team entered the home and arrested the suspect.
