Columbia man accused of pulling gun on woman after kicking in door in April 2022


A Columbia man who was recently accused of pulling a gun on an employee at a Downtown bar had more charges filed for an alleged incident that occurred last year.

Jonathan Dowell, 23, has been charged with first-degree burglary, armed-criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon stemming from an incident on April 16, 2022. A $75,000 bond is set. Dowell is already being held without bond at the Boone County Jail for charges filed earlier this week.

Dowell allegedly pulled a gun on an employee from Silverball, a bar in Downtown Columbia, before 1 a.m. Saturday morning. A witness and employee of the bar claimed Dowell became angry after getting kicked out and pulled out a gun, according to a probable cause statement.

He was charged with unlawful use of a weapon and unlawful possession of a gun in that case. A bond investigation was filed Thursday in that case. No change in bond was made. A confined docket hearing in that case is set for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, while a preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21.

In April, three alleged victims identified as B.R., D.F. and Q.M. said they were followed from Downtown to their residence by Elaijah and Saige Mayfield and an unknown female.

Charges were not filed for Elaijah Mayfield or Saige Mayfield in this incident, according to online court records.

When the three victims arrived at the residence, the three people who followed them got out of the car and Elaijah Mayfield alleged swung at B.R., according to the probable cause statement.

B.R. told police Saige Mayfield ripped B.R.’s shirt, which made her fall to the ground. Saige then allegedly dragged the victim, which caused injuries, according to the statement.

B.R. kicked Saige Mayfield off of her and one of the other victims told her to go inside. Elaijah Mayfield claimed Dowell was going to show up.

The probable cause statement says Dowell kicked open the door and pointed a gun with a green laser at B.R. Dowell allegedly told her and another victim that they should not have come back to Columbia, according to the probable cause statement. B.R. shut the door and Dowell and the other three allegedly left when they told them police were on the way.

A Columbia police officer saw injuries on B.R. that were consistent with being dragged on the ground, the probable cause statement says.

Another witness in the area allegedly told police they heard noise outside and saw three women get out of a car and heard one of them yell, “My husband is coming over.” The witness also stated the man showed up, they kicked in the door and left quickly, according to the probable cause statement.
