A Lawrenceville man has been charged with 11 felonies after allegedly threatening three people with a gun after they tried to take a PlayStation 4 console he was using, a Gwinnett County police report says.
Gerryon Ly’Darrius Ceasor, 20, is facing charges including aggravated assault, terroristic threats and acts and theft.
Ceasor took the gaming console from his brother and began playing it in his room on the afternoon of Sept. 22. The brother went to Ceasor’s room in an attempt to get the PS4 back and disable the gaming account associated with the console. Ceasor became “verbally aggressive” and the brother went downstairs, the police report says.
Ceasor followed, carrying a gun. He loaded and cocked the gun and began waving it around the room, threatening the brother, another man and a teenage boy, the report says. At one point, Ceasor approached the man, held the gun to his head and said “What are y’all going to make me do?”
The brother and the man ended up in a physical altercation with Ceasor in order to take the gun away.
When police arrived, Ceasor told an officer that the gun had fallen out of his backpack when he began arguing with his brother about the PS4. He also told police that his brother and the man had pistol-whipped him and kicked him. Ceasor was taken to the hospital, but the brother and the man were not charged with any crime.
While searching Ceasor’s backpack, police found a fake ID and multiple counterfeit $100 bills, the report says. Ceasor also told the police his gun may have been stolen because he had purchased it from a “guy up the road.”
After being cleared at the hospital, Ceasor was booked into the Gwinnett County Detention Center, where he is being held without bond.
He has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of terroristic threats and acts, three counts of second degree forgery and one count each of theft by taking, theft by receiving stolen property, criminal trespass damage, third degree cruelty to children, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and financial transaction card theft.
