MASON CITY – A Mason City man accused of domestic abuse assault who says his alleged victim “cried wolf” is behind bars, charged with violating the court-imposed no-contact order even as he mocks his own arrest and the process that put him in jail.

A bench warrant was issued by judge Ronald Wagenaar on January 4 for Philip C. Biermann, age 29, who was arrested for domestic abuse assault on December 22, 2015. His alleged victim complained of a head injury after that incident. A no-contact order was immediately imposed by a judge, which forbids contact between the accused and his alleged victim.

On December 27, 2015, the Cerro Gordo county sheriff’s office reported a no-contact order violation to the courts. Seven days later, the arrest warrant was issued. Biermann was booked into the jail at 1:29 PM Tuesday, claiming to have turned himself in.

NIT requested information from the sheriff’s office regarding how the no-contact order violation occurred. (UPDATE) Sheriff Kevin Pals tells NIT that Biermann “Left a notebook at the house.” Biermann, however, a local cell phone store owner, said in a rambling statement prior to his arrest today that “I might be the first guy in the world with a warrant for his arrest for a text using an emoji…that somehow is traced to me haha.”

Biermann told NIT that, leading up to his alleged domestic assault crime, he “caught an affair in progress… The officers said they needed to take me no matter what because that is unfortunatly how the ‘system’ goes even if a person cries wolf.”

Along with his statement, which can be read below, Biermann photographed himself at the jail, and used the caption “busted”.

If found guilty of violating the no-contact order, Biermann would likely face 7 days in jail.

I might be the first guy in the world with a warrant for his arrest for a text using an emoji…that somehow is traced to me haha. Normally I might be mad, but that’s pretty funny to me.For all those who thought hope was lost, I decided to follow my heart in my marriage decision, I can’t thank my lawyer enough for knocking sense into me to ignore what others are screaming and choose what I want deep down in my heart. I choose LOVE not war.

I painted a brutal picture to you all on my wife and I spoke out of anger and hurt so please disregard my previous rants. I will spare you all the scoop/dirty laundry on things after this status as I begin my journey to better myself and become the Christian man/leader God intended me to be. (But 10 million times STRONGER).

I may not know it’s going to have a happy ending, but in my life I can’t let Satan tear apart something that’s been so freaking beautiful and potential to be MORE. I hate giving up and walking away, I am wired to fight to the end no matter the circumstances.

So before I turn myself in, I want you all to know and come clean before my Facebook silence. I became a selfish man since the band ended, whom gave into money, success, alcohol and dabbled in some sexual addiction things with my wife that caused destruction.

I created some root issues, disregarded her desires and opened the gates to some super serious issues that caused a spiral of unfortunate events leading to our seperation, confusion and broken hearts.

It’s hard to admit, and I’m guessing North Iowa Today is going to take this and run, but honestly I don’t care what they say, what matters to me is I can give the truth, free myself from my issues, and fight to work on myself so I can be ready for that possible day soon where I can be reunited with my kids and if it works out in the best scenario my beautiful wife. We have the ability to come back stronger than ever and I know Satan fears what power we could have with Christ at the center.
We both messed up bad in this situation, I manipulated my words publicly out of the hurt aiming for revenge and showed glimpses of the selfish Phil that I vowed to destroy.

I am sorry facebook friends, and I am sorry if you disagree with my decision, but I am following my heart, and what I feel God is laying out in this, there is a long road ahead, and scars may remain, but hope is in the air and I can’t let go of my all time crush whom I still love and owe it to her especially when I am guilty of aiding in the problems.

With that said and off my chest I’m going to grab my last meal and turn myself in to jail for hopefully 2-7 days which I will spend in prayer and meditation.

On a side note I may bust out my best blue steel in the mug shot, well see…

Thanks everyone and prayers are much appreciated.

(I can do all things through Christ, I can do all things through Christ, ok, it’s go time….)

So I’ve been sitting in processing and got creative. I know alot of people already giving me high fives #freephil

      He was in processing… They stick you in a little room to wait until the jailers are ready to take your information, have you change into jail uniform, etc. When he went in they probably just stuck him in there and told him to wait while they attended other business. I know from experience, unfortunately.

    The idea that Phil posted his story to troll NIT before Matt could do it just made me spit coffee out my nose. I absolutely love what he posted on his facebook.

    I don’t know if he’s guilty or not, that’s for the justice system. But, there are a lot of people out there that would high five criminal behavior. That’s one of the things wrong with this country.
