Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) -  Kershaw County deputies have arrested a man after a two hour standoff in a cemetery.

He's 40 year old Robert Bass.

Deputies say Bass contacted them and told them he was in the cemetery of Springvale Baptist Church. He told them he wanted to turn himself in because Fairfield cCunty deputies were looking for him on a burglary charge.

However, when deputies got there they say Bass put a gun in his mouth and threatened to kill himself. After more than two hours, Bass put his weapon down and was taken into custody.

He was transported to the hospital for observation and then taken to the Kershaw County Jail.
