WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger is in trouble with the law once again. Wilmington Police charged Berger for driving with a revoked license, which is a misdemeanor.

Police say the charge came after a motorcycle officer pulled Berger over today for speeding in the 4800 block of Waltmoore Road. Police say Berger was going 43 mph in a 25 mph zone.

WPD spokeswoman Lucy Crockett said because of the revoked license, Berger was not allowed to drive away from the traffic stop.

There’s no word why Berger’s license had been revoked.

Berger is scheduled to be in court twice next week. Monday he is scheduled to appear on an alleged violation of a domestic violence protective order filed by his ex-girlfriend Heather Blaylock. Jan. 12 he is on the docket for a hearing regarding his arrest back in June, when he was charged with simple assault and injury to personal property against Blaylock. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss the assault charge in July, when Berger received a prayer for judgement continued on the assault to personal property.

Berger has not yet responded to our request for comment.

    I just laughed when I read you’re comment. You called me as rude as northerners? Do you realize what you just admitted? Also if you think my opinions and comments account for everyone in “the south” that just shows what level of cognitive reasoning you’re on. Yeah, just because one person that’s actually from this state makes a statement against out-of-state politicians holding political office here and the whole “Southern Hospitality” is a sham!!! omg! rapture!

    If they did that, they might subject themselves to hazardous waste. He did carve his arms up with a razor blade, you know. He had to clean it up, and probably threw the rags in the trash. Yuck!

    Reading your statement reminds me of John Lennon’s “Imagine,” because I think you want to believe in that fairy-tale.
    What part of my statement wasn’t true? They’re both from different parts of the country that definitely have a different dynamic socially and economically than here. I knew someone would step up with a idiotic “white hood” statement. Maybe you need to learn the definition of a racist. I have the same skin color as these men. Flawless logic you have there.
    I have no fear of different, and I don’t hate those that are. I’m sure that’s a concept that someone like yourself would like to think you have down-pat(see your statements above). I do have a problem when mental midgets such as Berger get into his position and refuse to do the right thing, and resign. I just think in order to run for a political office in a state, you should be from that state. Just like if you run for president of this country, you should be from this country.

    Not that I have to justify my opinion on the internet to complete strangers or anything…

    He does most of his stupid tricks out in public.

    gustafo- YOU ARE AN IDIOT. So much for that good, old fashioned southern hospitality. I guess most are right, it’s all an ACT. You are actually just as rude as “northerners”. See, we are all the same. Some just hide behind a CLAIM of having hospitality when in actuality, it’s all a huge sham. Thanks for clearing that up for us “northerners”

    I agree that his comment was way out of line and inappropriate for this post, but please don’t judge all southerners by one redneck. And please don’t resort to bring up The Klan and rubbing it in Southerners noses that you “won the war”. It’s offensive to us and makes you no better than him. With your amount of intelligence, you shouldn’t have to resort to his level to get your point across.

    Thank you.

    It took me a minute to believe I was reading this. Let me guess….you had to remove your hood before you began to type? What does where this moron is from have to do with the fact he’s in a public office and continually breaking the law?
    Just like I try to explain to all the racist pigs here….we are all human. Albeit, many of the same humans can’t let go of their fear of “different”.
    Get over it already. If you still feel the need to fight the Civil War go sign up for a reenactment somewhere and leave the posting for those of us that can do so intelligently.

    NUM-NUTTS. Ben McCoy, NUM-NUTTS II, Curtis Wright, deadbeat NUM-NUTTS! If You Guys are going to talk the talk, back it up. Butt Boy Berger is done. Can’t wait to see Ben McCoy try to spin this. Please Ben, use all of the big words you can, Rambling is expected.

    I’m glad we’re letting those yanks take our political offices here in Brunswick and New Hanover counties. They’ll show us how they do it up north, isn’t that right Mr. Jayne (Leland PD) and Freakshow Berger? I’m sure we were doing it wrong the whole entire time.

    …started screening through Bergers trash and his sewer discharge to find more valuable goodies to tell everyone. Oh no! Look at what I just did, gave them new ideas! DRATS!
