LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man who held his wife and child hostage for several hours in their Louisville home.

WAVE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1i2Bcmf) police responded to a domestic dispute call at the home of 40-year-old Bobby Walker around 7:50 a.m. on Sunday.

Police say officers were trying to serve Walker with a warrant, but he barricaded himself inside the residence and would not let his wife and child leave.

About five hours later, police say Walker exited the home and surrendered. His wife and child were not injured. Investigators have not released details about what caused the dispute.

Walker has been charged with domestic violence and unlawful imprisonment.
