William James Bellomy, 40, of Laquey is sitting in Pulaski County Jail on a $50,000 bond for an incident that occurred around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday surrounding his 15-year-old daughter.
According to the probable cause statement filed by the officer in the case, Bellamy allegedly fired a Sig Sauer 9mm hand gun at a man attempting to pick up his minor daughter.
The minor was not at home at the time because she was in the hospital for something unrelated, according to the probable cause statement. She had left her phone at home.
According to the probable cause statement, Bellamy told police that his daughter's phone received a text message from the alleged victim asking her to “come chill with him for a while.”
Bellomy told police, the probable cause statement alleges, that he replied back to the sender “come pick me up” at 1:30 a.m.
When the text sender arrived, according to the probable cause statement, he pulled into the driveway, saw Bellomy, backed out and started to pull back in. Bellomy allegedly fired one round from the 9mm.
Pulaski County Sheriff J.B. King reported in a press release that deputies discovered one spent round inside the vehicle near the passenger seat.
The press release also reports that Bellomy, an active duty service member, was arrested without incident.
Bellomy was originally given a $100,000 bond, but was given a reduction to $50,000 Thursday afternoon by Judge Colin Long. Bellomy's preliminary hearing has been set for July 12 at 9 a.m.
