WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) -- A hearing to review a prayer for judgment that New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger received more than a year ago was continued Monday.

Berger missed the first docket call in Courtroom 317 at the New Hanover County Court, but just before 11 a.m. a second call went out and Berger spoke with an attorney before leaving.

The charges were simple assault and injury to personal property that stem from a June 2011 incident with Berger's then-girlfriend Heather Blaylock. Blaylock called police after Berger allegedly ripped the door handle off her car.

Late again!!

This guy has some very serious issues. He's late for everything he does. He can't even make it to a court hearing on time. He's lucky he wasn't held in Contempt Of Court. The sad part is that he'll probably run for office again thinking he's doing a really good job

BadBoyBrianBerger....we call this news?

OMG. Are you guys really serious? I wonder how many other people were in that courtroom getting continences? What's so different and special abo Berger that we need to try and dig up something just because the man had a bout of temporary middle age insanity! I, a low income female, voted for Commissioner Berger, because from the very beginning,his campaign ads, which I might ad was that same, young ex-girlfriend, endorsing and pushing him down our throat, have stated that he was no politician, just a regular citizen. Well Commissioner, we the people voted you in, but yes lol you are just like anyone else! Honestly I am sure Commissioner #1 IS NOT the first of us to send an excessive amount of text messages to someone thats been a big part of your life......NOWHERE have I heard anything about the context of the texts, NOWHERE have I heard that he sent anything that would give justification of a restraining order, but im not a judge.
Now correct me if im wrong, but the police report, states that Catherine Blaylock was at the Commissioners residence when this transpired, but I could have sworn that it was reported by Starnews that she had moved out months earlier. Starnews, wect, wway get the scoop we want to know if she was in enough jeopardy to require a restraining order why was she at his home, alone to get a 50 ft cable and a box of junk? Just saying...
Also does someone want to report to the fact that while they say our commissioner violated his restraining order, he did so, while attending a meeting trying to get funding for Headstart, and never was in the same building, room, or presence of the protected ex-girlfriend. Sure hope they brought a jar of Vaseline when they picked him up, the next day.
And as for the statement that no fine upstanding citizen would run for office, well maybe if w had more joe smoes, like Commisioner Berger run, then our tax dollar maybe just a little less eagerly spent on breakfast, lunches, and banquets for the government and alot more under our control to see our kids get new books, our seniors get loving adequate care, our homeless shelter....Where can I pick a copy up of just what our government elected that we put in charge, are turning in for reinvestment?? Now that information is news!!

Walgreens called

Go back on your meds Brian....

Ridiculous Witchunt

Commissioner Berger is outnumbered by status-quo candidates, the same "leaders" who have long controlled New Hanover County politics, so as Ms. Blaylox and her supporters in the political world like the corrupt More-at-Four program Executive Director who endangered children, forced children to stand and soak in urine and directed funds for maintenance and learning supplies to her (Cynthia Brown)personal bank accounts. The children were directly affected and in very unhealthy ways by Brown, who forcfed Blaylock, with a history of mental health issues and visits from child protective services. Since Berger is the only elected official to care about those kids, to take the time to show up for a community meeting (even when an election is imminent).

I'll vote for Berger if he runs again not because I agree on all issues but because he is unyielding in fighting for Constitutional and civil rights, and his decision NOT to buy and operate a bowling alley and bar was met by retaliation from Catlin, Davis, Thompson and the other good ole boy Bafield. Nobody deserves and its not relevant who Berger sees in his life when he's not working on County business. First things First: Jonathan Barfield needs to go!!! Anyone would be an improvement. Election in November.

Berger Brian never touched or threatened the woman with ten personalities and names and had an extraordinary bond and closeness with Heather's several children. No good deed goes unpunished and it seems Berger is a victim here of a compulsive liar (listen to her media interviews and contradictory stories, and one look at her family screams "mental illness." People make judgements with no idea what happened, but there were witnesses who saw nothing unusual. Berger has stated he got hit by Heather when her "inappropriate rage" took over her body and soul, but all agree he never hit back, and probably never would. The kids who called berger their first "dad" were constantly used by Heather to manipulate Berger, along with the lies cheaters tell, which anyone with kids knows is the sure sign of a volatile, selfish thinking, and an inability to feel remorse.

The District Attorney, his office, Judge Criner, have been seen joking about the lack of justice and resulting consequences and hardships for Commissioner Berger who clearly has become a target for lies, perjury, some extremely unethical judicial authorities notably Sandra Ray Criner, and other authorities and County Commissioners who's conflicts, cover-ups for robbing taxpayers, and violations of civil liberties demands investigation by the SBI at a minimum since Ben david, his staff, and judges and law enforcement appear to have made no effort to find the facts, despite evidence and witnesses corroberating Berger's account and sincerity in treating others better than himself. The mistreatment and non-justice motives of those declaring Berger "guilty regardless of innocence." I now find myself tearing up at this sign of the corrupt ways of the past and the one person standing up against it has been destroyed and lied about, vicious lies and invasion of privacy, and Berger should hold his head up as the only one of the five Commissioners to bring both intelligence, character and impartial rational strategic thinking to a Board of Commissioners that needed to change and still does. Just say no to incumbents, and replace the two-faced slick politicians like Barfield with principled, public servants like Berger.

A clock

Maybe big boy bri could contact another equally silly acting man, flavor flav and ask to borrow one of his clocks.

Break the Law, Show up Late

Contempt for the sanctity of their own offices, Lying, and a myriad of other ridiculousness.

Is this what being a North Carolina "politician" has come to?

Berger, et al have really lived up to the new standards of political life, haven't they?

A fine, upstanding, responsible person would never consider running for office anymore.
It would be too difficult to work with lunatics while trying to serve the public tax payers WHO DESERVE SO MUCH BETTER.

They sure aren't getting much BANG for their Bucks around here. JUST ASK ME, I am a law abiding Tax Payer!

Commissioner # 1, please don't threaten to beat me up, I'm a woman...and I voted YOU OUTTA OFFICE, Buddy Boy!
