34-year-old Jared Paver had an altercation with one of his employees, Raymond Mansfield, at the Sentral SoBro apartment complex on Lea Avenue on February 27th. Mansfield alerted the authorities, advising them that Paver pointed a handgun at him during an argument. When officers arrived, Paver was not at the location, so they left and were called shortly after by Sentral SoBro management. Later that day, Sentral SoBro management called the police and advised that Paver had returned to the location and wanted him removed. Officers responded and located Paver with a female companion in the hallway. Paver admitted to having a verbal incident with someone the night before and having a firearm but claimed that he did not point or aim it at anybody. Paver was transported to Central Precinct for further investigation. Under Miranda, Paver admitted that he had been drinking yesterday and that he argued with Mansfield but did not recall aiming his gun at him. Officers then showed Paver video footage of the incident, which was when Paver admitted to being the one shown on tape pointing the firearm. Paver was taken into custody for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on February 28th.
