Deputies: Standoff ends with arrest

Orange County deputies have resolved a standoff hostage situation with a suspect on Kennedy Boulevard Sunday night.
The incident happened Sunday evening when deputies responded to a 911 emergency for a woman who possibly needed help. 
Family members tell Fox 35 it is nothing more than a domestic dispute between a husband and wife that escalated.
SWAT agents were called in, along with negotiators, to try to get the suspect to come out peacefully. 
After hours of negotiating SWAT was able to get Eddie Barton, 54, out of the residence. 
The woman suffered several injuries. She was transported to a nearby hospital.
Barton was arrested and faces aggravated battery via strangulation, aggravated battery domestic, false imprisonment and kidnapping.
No weapons were found.
