Gerald man held on $50,000 bond

Posted

Bryan K. Meyer, 48, of Gerald has been charged with fourth degree domestic assault and unlawful use of a weapon as the result of an incident Saturday, Jan. 16.

Franklin County Sheriff Steve Pelton reports that a deputy was dispatched to the 9000 block of Excelsior Road for a check-the-well-being request. Someone had called his department to report receiving a distressed phone call from Meyer, a resident at that address in the middle of the night. Meyer could not be contacted again after the call was disconnected.

The deputy had no success contacting Meyer at the residence, but learned Meyer had possibly left the residence with his girlfriend. 

The deputy also became aware of an incident at the Fastrip gas station in New Haven involving a vehicle matching the description of Meyer’s vehicle. A female occupying that vehicle left a note for the clerk at the gas station that read “call 911 he has a gun.” 

The deputy then contacted Gerald Police Department to check an address in the city limits that was on file for the subject. The Gerald officer located the truck and the couple at a residence in the 200 block of North Bernhardt. 

The deputy arrived at the residence and met with Meyer and his girlfriend. The woman explained she had tried leaving the vehicle after a dispute at their home. Meyer got into the vehicle and the argument continued. As they drove, Meyer produced a handgun and it was reportedly fired out the window as the argument ensued. 

The woman reported trying to drive to the Sheriff’s office, but said Meyer jerked the wheel to prevent turning that way. 

The disturbance continued onto the parking lot of MotoMart in Union. The female left the vehicle on foot and began walking away, but Meyer followed her and convinced her to get back into the vehicle. They then drove to the residence in Gerald. 

The deputy located a handgun and loaded magazine in the vehicle they had been in. Subsequently, Meyer was arrested for domestic assault. A warrant was later issued for that charge plus a charge of unlawful use of a weapon. His bond was set at $50,000.
