Gainesville Man ARRESTED After Alleged Threats With AK-STYLE RIFLE Following Domestic Dispute


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – After allegedly threatening to shoot family members and neighbors with an AK-style rifle after a domestic dispute, Jareezz Jermois Lee Rivers, 24, was arrested yesterday and charged with domestic battery by strangulation, aggravated battery on a pregnant female, aggravated assault, and child abuse without great bodily harm. As a result of the incident, Rivers was charged with all of these offenses.

After conducting an investigation, the officer from the Gainesville Police Department who responded to the call discovered that Rivers and his girlfriend had a disagreement that escalated into a physical altercation at approximately 5:45 p.m. yesterday. Following the collection of a child, the victim proceeded to a neighboring flat, which was located downstairs. Two neighbors rushed upstairs to try to calm Rivers down and remove a child who was ten months old from the flat.

After Rivers’ girlfriend returned the infant to him, Rivers allegedly began pacing and then said, “I’m doing life today.” He then went to his gun safe, where he loaded and racked a rifle. The officer was told by one of the neighbors that Rivers pushed him twice while he was holding the infant. Rivers allegedly said this to the officer.

It is said that the neighbor told the officer that when he heard the gun being racked, he and another neighbor hurried out of the apartment. As a result, they did not see the gun. However, they are aware of the location where Rivers stores his firearms and saw Rivers traveling in that direction when he was threatening to murder everyone.

Next to two magazines that were loaded, the officer discovered a rifle that resembled an AK on the couch in the living room.

Immediately following the Miranda warning, Rivers reportedly refused to answer any questions.

In Marion County, Rivers has several traffic citations and a conviction for driving without a legal license. However, he does not have any criminal history in the local area. A bail amount of $25,000 was determined by Judge Lorelie Brannan.
