Lodi man arrested after nearly 6-hour standoff
LODI — A 28-year-old Lodi man is in custody after a nearly six-hour standoff with officers Tuesday night.
Lodi Police Department officers responded to a domestic violence report in the 200 block of South Stockton Street at about 6:30 p.m. that night, Lt. Fernando Martinez said.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with a male resident, who went back inside the home and refused to come out, Martinez said.
Officers with the department’s Special Weapons And Tactics unit were called to the scene, and because a woman and child were in the home, Martinez said a search warrant had to be obtained.
Martinez said officers entered the home to remove the man, who was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. He was booked into Lodi City Jail.
