26-year-old Jaylin Guthrie had a domestic incident with his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Elizabeth Lewis, at her Bellwood Park Apartment unit on Cahal Avenue late March 8th. Lewis spoke with the officers when they arrived, advising them that she was hanging out with a high school friend, Michael McClary. While they were hanging out, Guthrie arrived unannounced, banging on her door. Lewis said that he must have noticed her extra parking space being occupied. Lewis assumed that this caused Guthrie to become frustrated, calling her repeatedly. Then, Lewis said Guthrie slammed onto the door, causing it to bend near the top and bottom. While doing this, Guthrie told them, “I will kill you guys, and I have a gun on me,” putting her and McClary in fear. Detectives located Guthrie a couple of streets away and initiated a traffic stop. Guthrie advised them that he went over to see his kids, admitting to having a gun in his fanny pack, but insisted he carries it everywhere. Then, Guthrie said he saw McClary inside the apartment, and he began banging on the door during the heat of the moment. Guthrie was taken into custody for domestic assault, assault, and vandalism.
