July 23, 2019

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — An airman from the Minot Air Force Base is accused of breaking into a local residence while armed with a gun and terrorizing a man and woman in the home.

Twenty-two-year-old Jonathan Bailey Geers is charged in district court with burglary, terrorizing and reckless endangerment.

Minot Daily News reports a probable cause affidavit says Geers went to the man’s residence early Saturday, despite a no contact order, broke into the home, began beating him and threatened to kill him. The court document says Geers pointed the gun at the couple and also threatened to kill himself.

Police arrived and say they found Geers in the living room with a gun to his head. He was taken into custody.

Bond was set at $50,000 cash in court Monday. Geers was ordered to stay on base.
