Domestic Violence Charges Put Marine Behind Bars

A Camp Lejeune Marine is in jail after police say he assaulted his wife in front of their four year old son.

New Bern police have charged Lance Corporal Bryan Brown with assault with a deadly weapon with a minor present, false imprisonment and assault on a female. Police say they got a call Wednesday to a home on Elmwood Street with reports of a man armed with a gun trying to kick open the rear door.

Police say they found the 21-year-old Brown sitting on the front porch. Inside were his estranged wife and son. Police say they learned that earlier the two had a physical altercation and that Brown refused to allow his wife to leave by waiving a kitchen knife in her face.

Police say the wife managed to flee after Brown left. She went to a home on Elmwood Street where police say Brown showed up and got in through an unlocked back door. The wife locked herself in a room with her son. They say Brown left and the wife then locked all the doors. Police say the Marine later returned, armed with a gun, and again tried to get into the home.

Brown is also charged with breaking & entering, attempted breaking & entering with the intent to commit a felony, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill (felony) and going armed to the terror of the people for what happened on Elmwood Street.

The Marine is jailed without bond.

    This was crazy for it to be somebody I know it is really sad. Yet at the same time she really could have provoked him, because I know he would not have done that for no reason!!! ??? I hope all works out...

    I've been through a lot too... and I don't beat my wife or threaten her with a gun. I'll bet a dollar that the Marines I work with that are in armed combat daily don't go home and do crap like this. If you don't love your wife just move out.

    I hate to see this. He's my friend and he's been through a lot. He's got a good heart.

    Can't believe this, I really think she added a little more to what happen,so don't judge him just yet.There's always another side of the story.

      I'm sure you would be in a cordial, loving, understanding frame of mind if this animal dangled a knife in your face threatening you.

    I hope this woman gets all the support she needs, and hopefully the child isnt old enough to remember anything. Ive lived through this and the fear never leaves you, I pray he doesnt get a bond and sits in jail thinking about what his temper has got him into.

    This mongrel isn't fit to serve anywhere. He is pure evil trash.
