Deputies arrested Tyler J. Keegan, 26, on Friday at his home on Hayes Avenue on charges of felonious assault, domestic violence and aggravated menacing. He was released on a $50,000 bond, posted by Mayo Bail Bond & Surety, according to the Erie County jail.

Jessica Wieber, 20, met deputies in the parking lot of an area business. There she told them Keegan hit her and held a 12 gauge shotgun to her head as he told her, “I’ll do it, I’ll bury you, I won’t go to prison over you.”

Keegan was allegedly upset when Wieber took money from his paycheck to pay household bills, giving him $50, she told police.

Wieber tried to leave, and Keegan took her cell phone and pushed her to the ground, where he hit her head on the ground and kicked her.

Deputies confiscated the 12 gauge shotgun for evidence as well as removing a 50 cal. firearm, a 20 gauge shotgun and a .308 rifle for safety. Keegan told deputies those weapons belonged to his father.
