The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a woman on
multiple felony charges in connection with a domestic-violence
related incident in Baker August 27th.
23-year old Jadian Faye-Marie Hatfield, no known address, is
charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without
intent to kill, domestic violence battery, interfering with the
custody of a minor, and possession of a firearm by a convicted
The victim, 25-year old Brandon Fleming of 6642 State Road
189 says Hatfield, the mother of his two year old son, agreed to
share custody and exchange the child every two weeks. He says on
August 27th, Hatfield told him via text messages she was tired of
him and would put him six feet under. Fleming told the deputy that
around 11 p.m., Hatfield came to his home and said she was
getting the child. He said no and went to call the Sheriff’s Office.
Fleming says Hatfield then took the child out a bedroom window
and when he went outside to get the boy out of the back seat of a
car, two men grabbed him and began fighting with him. Fleming told the deputy that during that physical altercation, Hatfield came
up behind him, pulled off his prosthetic leg and began striking him
with it. He says Hatfield then reached into the front of the car,
pulled out a 12 gauge shotgun and pointed it at him, saying she’d
kill him if he didn’t let her leave with the child. Hatfield, the child,
and the two men then drove off.
The deputy say Fleming had injuries consistent with his
statement. He also found a sheet being used as a curtain in the
bedroom window hanging partially outside.
Hatfield was arrested on the warrants August 31st.
