Okaloosa County, FL – During a recent custody argument, a woman allegedly pulled off her ex-boyfriend’s prosthetic leg and proceeded to strike him several times with it, according to FOX 10 TV. The incident was reportedly instigated by a series of unpleasant text messages the man received from his former flame. After he turned the nasty comments over to area police, the confrontation kicked into high gear.
“About three hours later, she’s beating on the door,” Brandon Fleming explained. “I hear him scream. I hear my son scream. And when I run back through, ain’t nothing but the curtain hanging through the window, so she reached up through the window and pulled him out.”
The Dreamin’ Demon reports that the suspect then placed her boy in the backseat of her car, which angered Fleming to no end. When he attempted to remove his son from the vehicle, two men proceeded to assault him. At some point during the altercation, Fleming’s ex-girlfriend removed his prosthetic leg and beat him repeatedly with it.
When she realized her baby’s father wasn’t going down without a fight, the suspect allegedly pointed a shotgun at the guy and threatened to kill him. That’s when the woman hopped in the car with her friends and drove away with her son.
“I ain’t scared of nothing you know, but … there’s no telling what they would’ve done … I was scared,” Fleming explained. Surprisingly, despite everything that’s happened, he doesn’t want to see his ex-girlfriend go to jail.
Warrants were issued for 23-year-old Jadian Faye-Marie Hatfield, who is currently facing charges of 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 felon. A significant amount of jail time could be in her future. According to FOX 10 TV, the woman is being held in custody without bond. Until the matter is resolved, Fleming has been granted full custody of his two-year-old son.
