LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A domestic occurrence at around 9:30 a.m. Christmas morning turned into multiple charges for a Lafayette man, 25-year-old Bryan Wagner.

On the 3000 block of Longlois Drive, LPD officers responded to a domestic call between Wagner and his live-in girlfriend.

"During the argument (Wager) pointed a gun at her head," Sgt. Ian O'Shields with LPD told the Journal & Courier, "and then he ended up leaving the scene. (He) was later located near Monticello around 11 a.m. where he was placed under arrest."

Wagner was arrested and charged with a level 5 domestic battery with a deadly weapon, as well as level 5 intimidation with a deadly weapon.

According to LPD's jail roster, as of Monday morning, Wagner is still being held.
