• Saturday night, just after midnight, LaGrange Police were in the area of the 86’d Bar on Main Street when several patrons burst out of the bar with people screaming, “He’s got a gun!”

The subjects then flagged down officers and asked for help. Police responded and observed two males subduing a third male subject on the ground, indicating he had a gun.

The subdued subject, Brandon Wilson, was then detained in handcuffs and asked if he had any weapons and he signaled to his right ankle. Police then retrieved a loaded Ruger handgun. The weapon was not holstered. Officers believe he’d stowed it to his ankle during the scuffle.

Officers then spoke with one of the other subjects, who stated that he was approached by Brian Lee Wilson and some words were exchanged concerning a previous relationship with his girlfriend. During the dispute, Wilson allegedly brandished the firearm and pointed it at him. Other subjects at the location then came to his aid and Wilson was removed from the bar.

Police then spoke to a witness, who confirmed these statements, adding that Wilson approached them unprovoked.

As a result, Wilson, age 23, was arrested and transported to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office where he was booked into the jail charged with Pointing a Gun at Another and Carrying a Concealed Weapon without a Permit.

Wilson was later released from the Troup County Jail on $2,000 bond.

• Monday afternoon about 12:10 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to the 200 block of Ashford Circle in reference to a Criminal Damage to Property claim.

Officers arrived and spoke with the complainant, who stated unknown person(s) had damaged her heater and air-conditioning unit.

The victim explained that she did not know that the unit was damaged until it stopped working and the repair company advised it had been sabotaged.

The unit had bent and broken copper pipes that ran from the basement to the outside unit. Police say it appears as if the damage could not have been caused in any other way other than intentionally.

The damage was estimated at over $3,000 per Airforce Heating and Air.

The victim stated she suspects the damage was done by her ex-boyfriend who used to live at the location until they broke up. According to the victim, he threatened to get back at her but didn’t say how he would do it.

The victim advised she has no proof that he caused the damage and didn’t actually see the damage being done.

This incident is still under investigation.
