DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – A man who barricaded himself inside a Deerfield Beach home was found hiding in a crawl space, a Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said.

BSO spokeswoman Gina Carter said the man fled from his girlfriend's home after deputies were called to a domestic violence incident and hid in a home nearby.

Michael Kemp was eventually arrested after he was found hiding in a crawl space, she said.

Kemp faces charges of domestic violence, aggravated assault and armed burglary.
