WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This morning’s arrest of New Hanover County Commission Brian Berger is not his first run-in with the law since taking office two years ago.

In June 2011, he was arrested for simple assault and property damage after an argument with his ex-girlfriend Heather Blaylock.

That August police were called to his home after Blaylock said Berger threatened to kill himself.

A week later, fellow commissioners called for his resignation. The next day Berger refused to resign, and deputies served him with a domestic violence order from Blaylock. Berger was arrested in November 2011 for violating that order.

The next month commissioners pulled him from boards and committees, but five days later Berger showed up to a DSS meeting, where deputies had to escort him out.

In January of this year, Berger was arrested for failing to appear in court. Four days later a judge found him guilty of violating the domestic violence order. Berger appealed. In August a Brunswick County jury found him not guilty.

    University of NC-Wilmington Hires Pornographic Poet As English Professor! * * * [WARNING: Graphic Language]* * * Dec 23, 2012 by Oliver Darcy

    Only in America do we pay perverts to defile our children . . . and call it education. The University of North Carolina-Wilmington has hired an English literature professor whose pornographic poetry includes fantasies of sexual relations with freshmen students. Professor Alessandro Porco, just hired, authors explicitly pornographic poems. His “Hot Girl-Girl Action University” fictional president Jill Kelly offers a welcome to the freshman class:

    “Who would say No to a gang-bang?
    Who would say No to Prof. Poon-Tang?
    Who would say No to my scholarly toungin’?
    Thank you fathers for your daughters.”

    Porco described it to PopMatters.com as “my book-length ode to the adult-film star affectionately referred to as ‘the anal queen.”

    Another of Porco’s Jill Kelly Poems is “Ars Poetica.”

    “Breakfast in bed & down on all fours;
    You’re eggs-over-easy, muchin’ for more.
    Vegans protest & brand it obscene;
    But there’s no starving my anal queen.”

    COME ON NOW, HOW PRODUCTIVE CAN MR. BERGER BE ON THE COUNTY COMMISSIONER’S BOARD WITH ALL THE NONSENSE HE PULLS PERIODICALLY?

    RELEASE HIM, AS A COMMISSIONER AND GET HIM SOME HELP BEFORE WE SEE
    ANOTHER SHOOT OUT LOCALLY.

    HE’S CRYING FOR HELP, DOESN’T ANYBODY RECOGNIZE THIS? HELP, HELP,
    HELP. MENTAL HELP, MENTAL HELP.

    You’re not threatening to shoot at Bryan are you? Btw your caps lock button got stuck. Mine got stuck like that and I had to throw the whole laptop away and get a new one… I still can’t find the “any key” to proceed.
