MERIDIAN, Idaho — A Meridian man is in jail after a domestic violence incident during which he pointed a gun at his victim, according to police.
Tyson Rehmer, 30, is facing felony charges of aggravated assault and use of a deadly weapon in commission of a felony, as well as misdemeanor counts of domestic battery and malicious injury to property.
According to Meridian Police, officers were called out to a house on Centerpoint Way at 10:30 p.m. Saturday for a report of a domestic dispute.
The victim, a 32-year-old woman, told police that she and Rehmer had been arguing when he took her phone and broke it.
The woman told officers that she had locked herself in a bathroom inside the house, but Rehmer kicked the door down and shoved her repeatedly. The suspect then grabbed a handgun, and pointed it at the woman, according to police.
Rehmer was arrested and booked into the Ada County Jail. Court records show that he had been arrested in a separate domestic violence case less than six months earlier. The misdemeanor charges in that case remain pending.
Rehmer is due to appear in court Jan. 27 on the new charges.
