Gov. Mapp’s Special Assistant Gregory Narr Arrested For Allegedly Strangling Woman

THUG SHOT: The Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) official mug shot of Gregory Rafael Narr, who is the special assistant to Governor Kenneth E. Mapp, was accused of two domestic violence-related assault charges early this morning.

FREDERIKSTED — The special assistant to Governor Kenneth Mapp was arrested early this morning and charged with trying to strangle his significant female other.

Gregory Rafael Narr, 28, who works with the Office of the Governor, was charged with second-degree assault and simple assault-domestic violence at about 2 a.m. Saturday, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department.

Police said that Narr “strangled a female acquaintance cutting off her ability to breathe,” VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said.

Narr was not given bail as per the domestic violence statute. Social media said he has a child by the injured woman.

On Facebook it says Narr is also associated with selling tropical fish such as Siamese fighting fish at “Fisheez at Exotic Aquatics” in Estate Kingshill.

He was remanded to the custody of the Golden Grove Correctional Facility pending an advice-of-rights hearing.

    Gregory Naar is my nephew and I do not condone domestic violence. However this must have been a very extreme case for him to do this. He has been living his life right. He does not party hearty in Miami, that pic in FB was once he visited and went out with his cousins, ladies on pic with him. Lets keep it kosher, and try not to exaggerate for the sake of sensationalism. I am praying for his soul.

    Along with Mrs.Nieves, I also do not condone domestic violence of any sorts nor from any gender. I do however believe the use of someone’s photo without permission is disrespectful, and this is more towards the photo of him with his two female cousins. For this report of the unlawful behavior, that photo is not necessary as it has nothing whatsoever to do with the ocurrence, not the time, nor the place that lead to what is being reported. Respectfully I believe, the exaggerated description used as caption to that photo of him spending time with family, was in poor taste. Please be more tactful when reporting.

    This looks very politically motivated. Is this paper a tabloid? The picture was snapped from Facebook where it clearly states that it was a family gathering. What a shame.

    This picture is known in Law Enforcement, as a “Mugshot”. Why did your so called, newspaper called it a “thugshot”, it’s shame that you are condoning profiling and defamation of character! Haven’t you heard about the right, that right we have! Innocent until proven guilty! Domestic Violence is not a condone action in my book! But, what about the possibility of it being self defense!!! Gregory Rafael Naar is not alone, has been a good man and caring husband and dad to kids that where not his! Now he’s a thug! Shame on your paper!!! Those so called friends who are using his name for “Political Propaganda”!!! God be with you Gregory!!!

    If the media calls it a “thug shot”, it’s called freedom of the press. Or using the First Amendment. Or perhaps Ms. Roman is not familiar with the First Amendment?
