A Pensacola woman was arrested after she allegedly beat her ex-boyfriend with his prosthetic leg after he confronted her about trying to kidnap their child.
Deputies were called to the 25-year-old ex-boyfriend’s Baker home Aug. 27 following an altercation with Jadian Faye-Marie Hatfield, 23, and two other men, according to a news release from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident began earlier in the day when the two began exchanging text messages unrelated to their 2-year-old child. At one point in the conversation, Hatfield is accused of telling her ex that she would “put him six feet under.”
Later that evening, she arrived at his Baker home where the child was staying for two weeks per the custody agreement reached after their breakup in February.
Once she was there, Hatfield is accused of pulling the toddler out through a window and putting him inside the vehicle before her ex came outside and confronted her, according to the arrest report.
Two males who apparently came with Hatfield to the house then started fighting with the ex-boyfriend.
At some point in the altercation, Hatfield pulled off the 25-year-old’s prosthetic leg and hit him with it, the report states.
When the ex-boyfriend freed himself, Hatfield allegedly pulled a shotgun and threatened to kill him if he didn’t let her take the child with her.
He let her take the child and went to a relative’s house to contact law enforcement.
After examining the man’s injuries, which were consistent with his story, and seeing the curtain hanging outside a bedroom window, warrants were issued for Hatfield.
She was arrested on Aug. 31 and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, domestic battery, interfering with the custody of a minor and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. She was previously charged and convicted for domestic battery in October 2008.
