Kentucky State Police arrested a 35-year-old man early Friday morning after he barricaded himself, his girlfriend and their infant child in a home in Bath County for several hours.
Troopers said J.B. Traylor of Morehead eventually surrendered peacefully after "numerous hours of negotiation" with police.
Neither the child nor Traylor's girlfriend, Daydra Ramey, 25, of Flemingsburg, was hurt.
Traylor was charged with unlawful imprisonment, endangering the welfare of a minor, and violating an emergency protective order or domestic violence order.

The case began about 10:25 p.m. Thursday, when state police received a call from Bath County dispatchers requesting help in serving a warrant on Traylor at his mother's home on Old River Road in the Midland community in Bath County.
Police said that when troopers and Bath County deputies arrived, Taylor barricaded himself inside the home and refused to come out.
Several additional officers then arrived, state police said.
Police soon confirmed that Traylor was holding Ramey and child inside the house against their will, according to state police. Negotiations then began, eventually leading to Traylor's surrender.
Traylor was being held in the Montgomery County jail, according to the Morehead state police post.
