WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger is back in Wilmington and being held in the New Hanover County Jail under $300,000 bond.

The charges listed on the jail’s website are failure to comply and probation violation. He is due in court Thursday afternoon.

Investigators in western North Carolina say the sound of gun shots earlier this week led them to Berger and to his eventual arrest.

WWAY has also learned that Berger was staying at the home of Justin LaNasa, a Wilmington business owner who has run for several local offices.

According to a news release from Beech Mountain Police Chief Jerry Turbyfill, an officer received a complaint Monday night about the sound of gun shots near their home. The officer responded to what he determined was the only home the shots could have come from and knocked on the door several times. Eventually the officer looked through a window and saw a man peeking around a corner inside. He asked the man, who later identified himself as Berger, if he’d been shooting, but Berger said no. He warned Berger than firing a gun in the town limits was a crime, and he would be charged if it happened again.

According to the release, the officer checked Berger’s information and found his past criminal charges, but Berger was not wanted at the time. Turbyfill says the officer felt that Berger’s actions were suspicious, especially because he would not open the front door despite being asked several times.

The next day, officers did some more digging and found an Order for Arrest for Berger from New Hanover County for a probation violation had been issued the night before.

Berger is on probation after pleading guilty in February to DWI and misdemeanor drug possession. According to court documents filed Monday in New Hanover County, a violation report was filed against Berger because he reportedly left his last known address at the Jameson Inn in Wilmington last month and could not be reached, “thereby absconding supervision.” The report also claims Berger has failed to complete 48 hours of community service within the ordered 120-day timeframe, that he refused to submit to a drug test last month after admitted using marijuana and that he was pulled over in March in Johnston County for driving while his license was revoked.

As a result, police officers from Beech Mountain and Banner Elk along with state probation officers went to the home where Berger was staying. When they got to the home, officers say they looked through a window and saw Berger on a sofa.

“Several weapons were observed in easy reach of Mr. Berger,” Turbyfill said in the release. “He was ordered to open the door multiple times, and he refused to open the door. At that time, while he was distracted, officers forced open the rear door of the residence and were able to take him into custody without further incident. He did not resist, he displayed no violence and did not try to reach for a weapon.”

Officers found air guns, rifles with high capacity ammunition drums, pistols, various knives, including a switch blade and a sword, a crossbow and a 37mm launcher in the home Turbyfill said. He said the homeowner, a friend of Berger and former federal agent, said the weapons had been securely locked in another part of the house, which Berger had gotten access to without the owner’s permission. Turbyfill said the homeowner, who was not at the house during all this, had agreed to let Berger stay for a couple of weeks, but had no knowledge of Berger’s problems and “just felt he was down on his luck, and was trying to help him out.”

LaNasa told WWAY today he let Berger stay at the house because the commissioner wanted to get away. He said he did not know about the terms of Berger’s probation that may prevent him from being there.

LaNasa says he has spent the last two days at the home cleaning up the mess Berger left behind. LaNasa says Berger acted like a 16-year-old when his parents leave them home alone. He says Berger took advantage of him and is not allowed to stay at the mountain house any more. LaNasa says his guns were locked away in a personal area, but Berger broke in.

Beech Mountain Police say all the guns appear to have been legally owned and properly stored by LaNasa. They say Berger could face more charges for breaking and entering into the weapons if LaNasa wants to press charges. LaNasa told WWAY he is meeting with police this afternoon.

Turbyfill says NC Probation officers took Berger to the Avery County Jail, where he is in custody under $300,000 bond. Beech Mountain Police charged him with possession of drug paraphernalia after they found a glass marijuana pipe. Turbyfill says they did not find any illegal drugs.

Turbyfill says none of the responding officers knew Berger was a New Hanover County Commissioner until well after the arrest.

    Again,,where is Ben McCoy? He is quiet. I do nor know, maybe left the area.

    Another tool,,,

  • Heimie Schmelter says:

    WWAY’s previous report stated that the house Berger was occupying was owned by a former “Federal Agent” LeNasa? I don’t think so…

    LeNasa, with all of the rediculous political campaigns you’ve attempted and lost, wearing t-shirts on TV interviews and portraying yourself as a fully imcompetent oaf on all occassions, you REALLY stepped in it this time! You have now placed yourself so far deep in the ditch you can’t even be dug out with a giant track-hoe! Geeeeeeez….Birds of a feather, I suppose.

  • Brian says:

    Yes – that is LaNasty’s tale. He was a knuckle-dragging deck ape (boatswain’s mate) in the Coast Guard. He was a petty officer…under 14USC89a…that paygrade has certain law enforcement powers. But, an E4 typically serves as a boarding team member under close supervision of more senior enlisted (NCO’s) or officers. He could be called a federal officer, but to use the term agent means something else entirely.

    So…he is definitely stretching a small tale into a yarn.

  • Carl says:

    A psychiatrist should determine what mental illness Berger has because he is most certainly mentally ill.

    Where is Berger’s family? They should demand mental evaluation before a tragedy occurs.

  • Eddie Jones says:

    Brian is screaming out for help. Hopefully, he can get the help he needs before he hurts himself or others. Just curious, where is his family? Seems like all his high profile friends have abandoned him. Let’s put Brian on our prayer list that he can get the help he needs and that his family and true friends will support him through this journey.

  • Marylou says:

    He has friend’s ? Really ? If he does they should stay far away from him unless they want to be a victim the next time he really “acts like a 14 yr. old” Next time he may really have a gun and shoot some one when he is taking whatever he takes. I think the Beech Mountain officer was lucky this time to be able to make it home safe. Berger is a person just waiting to “Go Off” and yet nothing much is done to stop him.Why he seem’s to have people in High Places in NHC that come to his rescue every time, I have no clue. I have no idea if he is Manic, Bi-Polar or what if anything is mentally wrong with him, but someone better find out real fast. He is a snowball rolling downhill and picking up the pace as he goes and he many very well pick some one on the way with horrible result’s. Sound’s to me like if he is on legal meds, he chooses street drugs over them. that makes him very dangerous. Our Leos better stop being afraid of stepping on toes, including our Chief.Berger is playing the part very well.He get’s straight just long enough to fool the fool’s that may be in his target area. He either need’s in patient help until an outside Doctor is sure he is safe to be around, or he need’s to be in Jail. Either way, a preemptive strike should be done before he does more damage.

  • Ida says:

    How could Justin LaNasa NOT know of Berger’s issues……LaNasa has tried to run for office himself, and in Wilmington….has tried to help Berger…where can he not know of Berger’s issues??? A lie indeed. Berger’s issues have been all over the media.

  • Audrey says:

    You are so right. He needs prayers and help.

  • SurfCityTom says:

    with his ego, he likely sees this as a vindication of his failed attempt at amotion.

    And they certainly did not waste any time getting him back. It sure took less time than that required to get felony suspects back into NHC.

    That’s a good 6 hours to get there; 6 hours back; and probably an hour or 2 for meal breaks. Throw in the time required out there to process paperwork, you’re looking at 15 hours. Likely sent 2 officers due to the distance. Effectively 30 man hours to get Brian back here. And with time and a half for overtime, this could equal 45 hours of paid time plus gasoline and meal per diem.

    Scott Pickey — why not have BullDog Wuzzardo ask the Sheriff why the haste and exactly what was the cost to the county. He is up for re-election. Then ask him if any instructions were issued by the Council to expedite Berger’s return

    Would give us something other than the same old rehash of events.

  • GuestAMotion says:

    BB has repeatedly violated conditions of his parole showing that he clearly does not respect the justice system.

    Everytime he will get behind the wheel of a vehicle (once he is freed by a sympathetic judge) he is a threat to society. Whether he is medicated or not, I would not feel safe on the road if I knew he was driving.

    Do us all (including BB) a favor and keep him incarcerated.

  • guesty says:

    What a shock, when you let a mentally unstable person into your home they will leave messes. I wasn’t aware of that.

  • Tattooer12 says:

    Isn’t impersonating a federal officer or official a crime?

  • Kirk says:

    One need only read the comment section to conclude that Commissioner Brian Berger continues to be an accurate reflection of the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of the vast majority of New Hanover County’s people. He could’ve easily been re-elected.

  • Tattooer12 says:

    Heh.. That Shashooer Justin knew, knows what probation rules and regs are. The law just doesn’t pertain to him.. Didn’t you know that?

  • Tatooer12 says:

    From the same mold. Common sense should have dictated Lanaseee knows better than to have guns anywhere within a ten mile radius of Burger. Didn’t he try to commit suicide or something like that? Why would you send someone publically known as emotionally unstable anywhere locked or not, with guns and .. What.. A rocket launcher? Really??? Really????

  • Stella's says:

    What does this have to do with woody white? Berger is either stupid or emotionally unstable. Normal people do not behave this way. He fought to stay on the board, but won’t show up for important votes. HE is the one wasting taxpayers money and is more than derelect in his duties as a commissioner. But I’m sure you think all that is woody whites fault and not because of actions and choices made by Berger. I wondered if there was anyone out there that still couldn’t see past the politics. You shouldn’t let other people dictate what you think. The facts show an incompetent and troubled individual that is not doing any good to anyone including himself. He bypassed a padlock on a door in a house he doesn’t own. So add thief to the list too. I am not even a woody fan, but it is absurd to blame anyone other than Berger for his choices and his behavior. Who cares how fast they got him here? You should care about the fact that Berger is obviously mentally impaired and in desperate need of help, not excuses. Ps if Justin presses charges, which he should but probably won’t- Avery county will throw the book at him. I suppose you will think that is about woody white too.

  • BrianB says:

    What do you mean shashooer? He can’t shashoo or drawll..

  • SurfCityTom says:

    did I lay any blame on Woody White?

    You might want to go back to school and brush up on reading comprehension.

    Once he was in custody, it appears Berger was transported back to NHC much quicker than 1 might suspect.

    If you can point out the statement you feel I made which places some blame on White please do so.

    Or are you 1 of the film industry advocates who can not admit the incentive saga played out just as I stated?

  • Michael says:

    He is not impersonating anything. Saying he WAS something, even if he is using wrong terminology is different than going out and ACTING or taking positive action to portray himself as that person with authority. (Wearing a uniform, trying to pull someone over or take other LE action.)

    All manner of people claim they were Navy S.E.A.L.S, war heroes, etc. If they get exposed, they are liars…but to be charged means a specific law is in place and they are violating it. LaNasty isn’t doing that. I think a law was actually passed recently regarding wearing a military uniform and medals that weren’t earned.

  • Guestman says:

    When will you admit that you are just a paid shill for the republicans?
    You are certainly following the playbook of lies, hearsay, and innuendo. In this case innuendo.
    I’m sure that you are shocked that anyone could come to that conclusion from your post but when you say county commissioners we all know that is a code word for Woody White.

  • GuestMan. says:

    That is not the real GuestMan that posted that. As you all know, I could care less what a republican’t does to a tea-bagger.

  • SurfCityTom says:

    blowhard as the other person.

    Where did I even mention the Commissioners?

    I asked several questions.

    I made no statements; I drew no assumptions.

    Is it that bad to concede the film incentive saga is going down just as I stated it would over a week ago?

  • guesty says:

    And exactly what department was LaNasa a federal agent? His time in the Coast Guard? Way to blow things out of proportion.

  • guesty says:

    …LaNasa is trying to portray his stint in the Coast Guard as being a federal agent.

  • Anne says:

    Look at the photo at top of Brian Berger’s Facebook page. It speaks volumes about the turmoil inside him. The photo is of a building with smoke pouring out, as if a bomb has gone off. Unless BB is remanded for inpatient treatment at a facility competent to diagnose him, this cannot end well. He appears to be self-medicating, which only exacerbates his condition. Anyone who considers him/herself a friend of Brian’s should not allow him anywhere near weapons of destruction and illegal drugs, including marijuana, and he should not be using alcohol, as his driving behavior indicates. Brian is an intelligent fellow who desperately needs serious intervention, not slaps on the wrist. Any attorney who enables BB to avoid full consequences is complicit in the harm.

  • guest111 says:

    When will enough be enough? When Berger goes to the court house or the government building with guns and starts shooting? It’s time for the judges around here to put him where he needs to be to get help. He is obviously obsessed with guns. . I think we have heard this story before, all over the news. He’s a time bomb waiting to go off.
    The legal system needs to get a backbone and step up to the plate and put him in a psych hospital.

  • VOG48 says:

    Berger is the VOICE and MIND of the Tea ParTY

    Now with film industry gone, we need mY MAN Berger back in wilmingtonnn.

    C’mon Brian! TIME TO LEAD US TO ALL THE GOOD JOBS! We’re behind you all the way!

  • Guestman. says:

    I can debate the issues with anyone from the teabagger party and will win. What I am trying to do is get down to the intellectual level of the average republican that posts on this site. I not embarrassing anyone but the idiots that voted for Berger, If anyone would own up to that now.
    That’s alright though. You still have Hickey.

  • guest55690876 says:

    Let it go bro, you’re embarrassing yourself, and your cause. Everyone knows that your guy (Obama) has been a failure, and all you have left is to call the other party “crazy” because you can’t intellectually debate them on the issues. Re-educate yourself, don’t be so close minded. I get the sense that you’re still in school, so please inform yourself, learn to think critically, and bring something to the discourse other than name calling. It achieves nothing and makes you look small minded.

  • Port City native says:

    Are you pointing out who is an educated smart leader? Or which one that hasn’t ever been arrested or indicted?
    We only pointed out the Democrats we know have left either in shame or handcuffs.

    So it seems you are trying to point out your opinion. If I gave my opinion my list would have candidates from both.
    But the majority by at least 85% would be Dems. They just seem to get into more corrupt and illegal things.

  • Guestman. says:

    G.W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Gov. McRotten, Tom Tillis, Sarah Palin, Rush, Woody White, Ilario Pantano, Michelle Bachman, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Newt,etc. I could go on and on.
    You guys win, hands down for crazy and Brian Berger is your tea-bagger poster boy.

  • ScottyD says:

    How can someone FORCE you to work something?

    First off I am a registered Democrat and was there as a delegate from 7th district.
    I hate to admit it but it was true! Most of the folks that were there were completely normal acting.

  • RealityBites says:

    Typical lib.

  • LEO 17years says:

    I worked for Charlotte PD at the time and we had no real choice unless we quit our jobs.

    So I guess that means forced. But most system sucking parasites don’t understand having to have a job.

  • LEO 17years says:

    The last DNC was an absolute freakshow. I was forced to work it and I felt like I was in a Mardi Gras type event!
    We had to stop event goers from doing drugs in the open and having sex in public. People using the bathroom in the open! My brother worked the RNC and only had traffic issues.

    Oh yeah they did have dozens of arrest I forgot about. It was some Occupy Protesters, throwing urine and feces on people and cars. And breaking into businesses.
    I wonder what party those folks are registered as?

  • SouthEastNC says:

    Derrick Hickey, and he’s terrible too.

  • Erlkoenig says:

    John Wayne Gasey was a Democrat.

  • guest653908 says:

    RC Soles, John Edwards, Anthony Weiner, Bill and Hillary, Barack, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, plus every school shooter of the past 20 yrs. Yeah, it looks like the Democrat party meets their share of DSM-V criteria as well.

  • Port city native says:

    Katherine Moore, Julia Boseman,Thomas Wright.
    Need I go on? That’s just what I can remember.

    And all of those got re-elected.. RC Soles, Bev Perdue, Mike Easley, Ronald Hewett. Jesse Jackson Jr.
    Ok I made my point we have our one here. But he won’t be put back in like you liberal idiots.

    It’s so sad to beat on weaklings such as you. Go cash your welfare check now, and buy your drugs with the money.
    Yep, the democrats are in a true class by themselves!

  • suspicious 1 says:

    So what if weapons were found where Berger was staying? What if he did have a pipe? I suppose since druggies can fashion a crack pipe from a soda can, everyone with an empty aluminum can in his car could be charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Unless drugs are found, the simple possession of a pipe or papers should be a moot point.

  • SouthEastNC says:

    Trying to remember to my wilder days, but I believe that if a pipe has been used much, there is marijuana residue (ie – bong resin) and then they’re able to deem it paraphernalia.

  • Monkey Junction says:

    I am sure the police were quite interested to know there were weapons near Berger when they arrested him. He could have grabbed a gun and hurt himself or the police.

    There is a world of difference between a soda can and a marijuana pipe. A can has other uses than smoking weed. The key determination is the presence of residue on the can/pipe. Also proximity is important. Was the can right next to the weed or was it in the fridge? I am sure someone would be charged with paraphernalia if the can had been used to smoke weed.

  • Erlkoenig says:

    Your arguments above for Obamacare are not arguments. Just because liberal Republicans supported such a thing doesn’t make it right. Unlike you I am not beholden to what party leaders believe. I put my faith in me and God.

    The stock market is artificial high right now because of Government. Not the private sector.

    And finally, what killed the Sandy Hook children was a sick, deranged fruitcake who probably had no shortage of spongy liberal teachers who wanted to make him feel good about himself. He also broke half a dozen commonsense guns laws before he killed the first child. Did you notice he didn’t select a gun shop to wreak havoc. He picked a place where there was complete gun control and 100% compliance with government.

  • Taxpayer 77 says:

    Maybe they are unemployed and drive scooters or are just upset their Savior is a Failure!
    Personally I enjoy fuel that cost 3.70 to 4.00 a gallon so I can pay 360 a month for gas so I can go to work to pay for the ignorant freeloading losers to continue to get public assistance.

    You morons are so correct on liberal ideas. I sure wish I could be useless as you guys and sit around and do nothing but have everything handed to me. Just wait until you really have to get a job and earn your own money. Your tone will change. But you all will probably just try for disability then.
    By the way Martin Luther King Jr wasn’t a liberal Democrat. He voted Conservative. I am saying that as a registered Independent. He even knew your liberal views were evil and twisted.

    Do you think he could have killed that many people with a knife, Mr. Chickenhawk?

    Which unneeded services are you referring to? Is it the right to vote? The right to have the same education as a white person? Maybe you would like separate water fountains and waiting rooms or perhaps you would rather come in the back door to restaurants rather than the front?
    If it wasn’t for the democrats there would not be a VA.
    Your grandfather was a brave man.

  • Guest000000 says:

    I find it very odd when Repubicans try and claim MLK as a Republican when it suits them, and then claim how corrupt he was the rest of the time. Everyone knows what the Democratic Party was in the South at the turn of the Civil Rights Movement. It was the Party of Segregation, Racism, Jim Crow Laws, States Rights, etc. In other words, everything that the Republican Party stands for now. To say that MLK voted conservative simply because he was registered as a Republican is ludicrous. I’m also amazed at how a supposedly intelligent group of people can be tricked into blaming all their problems on the poor, the elderly, the infirm, women, minorities, etc. In other words, anyone who isn’t a Rich, White Male.

  • Guestman. says:

    I am a proud liberal. I work 50 hours a week at a good job that I have worked hard for, voted in every election since 1972, served my country for 7 years, and think that someone that is registered independent is straddling the fence or doesn’t have a clue what they believe.
    I think that people in a society have an obligation to those less fortunate to give them a hand up every once in a while. I believe in the Beatitudes of Christ especially “Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy”.
    Which liberal ideas are you opposed to? Is it that people should have affordable health care that is not dictated by lawyers and insurance companies and is governed by the doctors? Is it that people should have a living wage so the government doesn’t have to give them food stamps? Is it that people should be able to walk around and not be afraid of being gunned down by an assault weapon? Enlighten me. What is it?
    Do you like that people are starving and we are giving tax breaks to oil companies that are charging you $4.00 for gas? Do you like that companies can pump poison in the ground and poison our water for about 6 years worth of natural gas? Do you think Dr. King would like that Republicans are trying to disenfranchise voters, or that racism is still prevalent and doing well in the USA today?
    Tell what evil or twisted ideas you are talking about, if you will. How do you know how he voted? Were you there with him?
    I never had anything handed to me, I just feel a responsiblity to others that are less fortunate.
    You would feel better in your soul if you did the same.

  • Tax Payer 77 says:

    First of all I am still serving my country 11 years as a Marine, now 12 in the Air Force.

    And all the lies and propaganda you are spouting off is just what the media told you and brainwashed you with.
    I will also tell you that being a Black male in the military and knowing how my Airmen and Former Marines feel about the current administration is the feel betrayed and totally unsupported by mostly the Democrats. It’s just a fact Dems gut our military which becomes a trickle down effect to the VA and also leads to other nations not trusting us as a nation. We are who we are because of our military power throughout history. It’s not because of the Peace Corp! Not because of Hollywood, and not because of Wall St or Exxon Mobil. It’s been our power we bring through our armed forces. I will tell you this when I arrived at Laguardia in May of 2011. A group of Occupy Protesters threw trash at us and spit on a few of us! Guess who stood up for them with what they did? Harry Reid and Pelosi said they had a right to show distain for our Illegal Occupation. I am betting those folks were not Conservatives that did that to us!
    I just know in my line of work. The liberal agenda is not well received at all. So to answer your question yes my grandad was with Dr King from Selma to Montgomery and all the way to Washington. And yes he was very ultra Conservative! We made it without all these unneeded programs for 200yrs. Time to start cutting those not the military.
    No way do you want these morons running healthcare either.

  • 10101 says:

    I know exactly what I believe in and refuse to be painted into an illogical corner by the broad brush of the extremists in either party; that’s why I vote the person, not the party. Extreme party loyalists, from either party are just lemmings and are easily manipulated.

    While I applaud your social compassion, I just can’t wrap my head around the concept of unconditional spending to fix all of society’s ills. The nation’s debt is rising every year. Unless spending, of all kind, is reset back to sensible levels, we will bankrupt ourselves. Liberals seem to run away from that every time it’s brought up. Running away won’t fix the problem. Republicans seem far too comfortable funding their own interests over everything else.

    The only answer is to find a practical middle ground. Unfortunately, far too many would rather hang on to their uncompromising beliefs until our country is totally destroyed.

    The clock continues to inexorably tick towards our own demise unless more voters start to actually think for themselves and start making some compromises instead of just following some hard line party blather. We all pretty much do that all the time in our everyday lives in order to get by. it’s past time for our government to start doing the same.

  • Erlkoenig says:

    “Which liberal ideas are you opposed to?”
    Socialism
    Abortion
    Leniency for criminals
    Teaching children lies about our Founding Fathers
    Admiration for traitors like Jane Fondle

    “Is it that people should have affordable health care that is not dictated by lawyers and insurance companies and is governed by the doctors?”
    No, but Obama is. Obamacare is all about NOT having doctors in control and having the young and healthy pay high premiums to cover other.

    “Is it that people should have a living wage so the government doesn’t have to give them food stamps?”
    No, it’s about opportunities to move up the ladder and not needing food stamps. Unlike liberals who seem hell-bent to get all Americans on foodstamps. Go Obama!!!!

    “Is it that people should be able to walk around and not be afraid of being gunned down by an assault weapon?”
    If this is a problem for you stop supporting Liberal Judges and Liberal Politicians who all want to get these bums back out on the street. Now when you say “assault weapon”, are you referring to the gun, knife, or car that the lib kid out in California inflicted all the damage with?

    And finally you say you served your country for 7 years; thank for your time in the WACS guest?man?.

  • Guestman. says:

    ACA could be called Romneycare because he implmented it in Mass. when he was governor. Or, more accurately, Nixoncare, because he wanted us to be covered when he was president.
    Job opportunites should be what the “job creators” are doing, but, they are more worried about investing in the stock market and taking profits than they are about creating anything but more wealth for themselves.
    I know of no one in their right mind that considers a knife or a gun an assault weapon. I am referring to the type of weapon that killed 26 in Sandy Hook and various other school shootings in the last year and a half.
    You must not have served in any branch of service and are more of a “chickenhawk” in the vein of Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz.
