SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

A Sylvester man is in custody following a two-hour standoff overnight, Wednesday.

It started as a domestic call to a home on Atlantic Street.

Sylvester Police said Jamie Williams, 36, assaulted his wife around 12:45 Thursday morning. She ran, but when officers arrived, Williams barricaded himself inside the house.

Two SPD negotiators were called in, and they talked Williams into surrendering just before 3:00 a.m.

He's being held in the Worth County Jail on charges of aggravated assault and obstruction.

Williams was also wanted on probation violation charges.
