Mathews, 23, said he didn't want to let police into the home because he was wanted on outstanding traffic and drug warrants. He admitted domestic assault and battery but said he did not hold the woman hostage.

The kidnapping charges were dismissed.

Judge David Youll sentenced Mathews to five years for the assault with a dangerous weapon charge and a one-year suspended sentence on the assault and battery charge.
