Here's a summary of what's been released today -
Pierre Pierce is a suspect in a criminal investigation regarding an incident at his ex-girlfriend's apartment that took place late Thursday or early Friday in West Des Moines. The incident report alleges burglary, vandalism, false imprisonment (detaining someone against their will), and assault with intent to cause injury.
Apparently, the woman's laptop computer and digital camera were found at Pierce's residence. He (or anyone else) has not been charged or arrested.
According to Pierce's lawyer Alfredo Parrish, as quoted at Hawk Central -
“[Pierce] believes there was a misunderstanding between himself and this
woman with whom he’s had a relationship for two-and-a-half years. I’ve made
arrangements for him to give a statement to the West Des Moines Police
Department when I get back in town.”
“We don’t want to comment on the incident at all,” Parrish said. “We’re
going to give a full statement and full disclosure. ... I’m sure the factual
details will be disclosed later, but I think the fact they’ve had a 2½-year
relationship should give folks a perspective on what happened.”
Parrish also mentioned that the woman was with Pierce in Iowa City the previous weekend.
More news is on the way tomorrow - the police should have a statement, and charges could be filed.
