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.
