WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The week ended much like it began for New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger and his ex-girlfriend: with a call to and visit from Wilmington Police.
Police say Berger and Heather Blaylock were meeting to work out their differences. When things got loud, a third party called police, who met the couple at Blaylock’s home.
Officers told WWAY they made no arrests and did not plan to press charges. Officers at the scene also said they gave Blaylock the option to place a domestic violence order against Berger. Police say she declined.
Monday night Blaylock called 911 to report Berger may harm himself after he sent her text messages threatening to kill himself and a picture of his arm cut up and bleeding. Berger has denied he attempted suicide that night.
