Berger arrest latest in growing list of controversies

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This morning’s arrest of New Hanover County Brian Berger is not his first run-in with the law since taking office two years ago.

In June 2011, he was arrested for simple assault and property damage after an argument with his ex-girlfriend Heather Blaylock.

That August police were called to his home after Blaylock said Berger threatened to kill himself.

A week later, fellow commissioners to called for his resignation. The next day Berger refused to resign, and deputies served him with a domestic violence order from Blaylock. Berger was arrested in November 2011 for violating that order.

The next month commissioners pulled him from boards and committees, but five days later Berger showed up to a DSS meeting, where deputies had to escort him out.

In January of this year, Berger was arrested for failing to appear in court. Four days later a judge found him guilty of violating the domestic violence order. Berger appealed. In August a Brunswick County jury found him not guilty.
