SORRENTO - Police arrested Nicholas Lewis, 32, and his wife Kristen Lewis, 25, after an hours-long standoff in front of their Lee Street home.

The arrested stemmed from a traffic stop that turned sour, leading police to the home.

Witnesses said the couple barricaded themselves in the home for hours with their two small children before the father emerged and was arrested at gun point. Social Services surveyed the home and then took custody of the two boys before police arrested the mother.

Both were arrested on outstanding warrants for child desertion, but police said more charges could be pending.

Another man was arrested during the earlier traffic stop. Police charged Chester Muse, 36, with possession of marijuana, cocaine and heroin as well as distribution.
