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.

It is a sad state of affairs when everyone’s private lives become public, but when you are a public official you do lose a certain amount of privacy. Mr. Berger has endured ALOT of public backlash from being late to meetings etc. Considering the recent texts that were revealed from his ex girlfriend, it appears he may have other issues that we as the public are not aware of…. with that being said we should just let whatever happens…happen. I am sure there are several other “county employees” that have run in’s with Law Enforcement that are not making the News. Is it because they are LEO’s???

I think he may be coo coo for coco puffs!
The village called, they want their idiot back.
The elevator doesn’t stop on all floors.
The bread didn’t rise.
Missing a few bricks.
Not the brightest bulb.
Not the sharpest knife.

where is the official twist of media lies when you need them? Is this still Heather’s fault again? I hope all you tea partyers realize in the next election that anyone Ben McKoy backs as a political candidate is clearly missing a bag of marbles..

This Berger/Blaylock Saga is about to rival that of the “Frog” Strickland/R.C. Soles Saga a couple of counties over and they are quickly becoming or have become a source of embarrassment to both counties. I have always been one that was of the mindset that ones private life should remain just that, however, when it spills over into the public and involves a public official he, she or they need to work it out and be done with it and this not only goes for Mr. Soles but for Mr. Berger also. With many coming down on the side of Ms. Blaylock as being “The Victim”, and she may well be just that. She also has issues that must be dealt with so that she can move on either with or without Mr. Berger. Mr. Berger on the other hand has a higher duty as a public official to set a behavior example to the public that he has so far failed to do. He not only has become as embarrassment to himself but he has done the same to the people he was elected to serve in New Hanover County and to the people of the City of Wilmington and that makes his private life subject to the scrutiny of the media, his Republican Party, friends, constituents and the general public. Mr. Berger should consider a Leave of Absence for a period of time to get his private life in order as no public life is worth the destruction of ones private life and at the rate this saga is progressing, there can be no positive outcome for either of the parties involved.
