27-year-old Bailey Christopher Belcher was jailed early Saturday morning after a confrontation with his former girlfriend and roommate, Kristen Leigh Peled. Police arrived at their Baby Ruth Lane residence just after 1 a.m., and Peled reported that she was in her bedroom when Belcher attempted to make entry by banging on the door while mumbling some words. She stated he had a handgun in his waistband, which placed her in imminent fear due to his level of intoxication. She ran to the bathroom and locked the door. The officer made contact with Belcher, who still had the handgun in his right pocket, and noted he still reeked of alcohol. He was taken into custody on multiple charges.
