ROCKWELL, IOWA – A former Cerro Gordo county jailer and bouncer at a now-closed adult night club was arrested this week.
Aron John Bierl, age 29 of Nora Springs, was arrested by the Cerro Gordo county sheriff’s department and Rockwell police after an incident in Rockwell Thursday evening. A source tells NIT he was bothering a person there, leading to a charge of harassment. He was taken to the county jail, held briefly, and released.
Bierl had been charged with harassment last year but was given a deferred judgement and probation in that case. He was accused of violating his probation in March and April of this year, but those cases appear to still be in court. He is facing a probation revocation hearing on July 11 after a number of continuances in court.
Bierl, who bounced at the Pole Barn adult nightclub in Nora Springs this year before it permanently closed, is also facing felony gun charges at this time. His house was raided by police for a second time back in March. The second time, they were searching for guns at his home at 214 North Gaylord Avenue, and apparently found enough evidence to bring two felony charges against him. He faces two felony charges of dominion / control of firearm by a domestic abuser. Currently, he remains free as he awaits a September pre-trial conference (possible plea deal) and a jury trial on September 22.
Bierl stopped working at the Cerro Gordo county jail on July 13, 2015, when he resigned.
