SCOTTVILLE — A 36-year-old Scottville man was arrested Monday, March 23, by Scottville Police Department on the charges of domestic violence and assaulting a police officer after the man began to fight with Chief Matt Murphy and Officer Katrina Skinner.

According to Murphy, the two officers were attempting to serve an arrest warrant on Brandon Charles Hathaway of 407 N. Thomas St. The warrant was a charge from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, of domestic assault that allegedly occurred last weekend at that same address. On Monday, the Scottville officers returned to Hathaway’s residence and he allegedly refused to comply with the orders. He kicked one of the officers in the face, Murphy said. He was eventually placed in custody and lodged in the Mason County Jail. Bail was set at $2,500, 10%. He remains lodged.

Hathaway was arraigned today by the Mason County magistrate in 79th District Court and charged with two counts of assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer, each a felony punishable by up to two years imprisonment. He was also charged with a misdemeanor of domestic violence against a female subject.

He is scheduled for a preliminary examination on April 8, 2020.

Hathaway has had previous convictions. Recent convictions include:

On Oct. 29, 2019 he pleaded guilty in 79th District Court to disorderly person jostling and was sentenced to two days in jail with credit for two days served; 90 days discretionary jail for two years. A charge of domestic violence was dismissed.

On Aug. 6, 2019, he pleaded guilty in 79th District Court to disorderly person jostling and was sentenced to six days in jail with credit for six days served; 90 days discretionary jail for two years.

On Feb. 20, 2018, he was found guilty of attempted assaulting/resisting/obstructing police and was sentenced to two days in jail with credit for two days served; one year discretionary jail for one year. The charges stemmed from Hathaway allegedly driving a snowmobile erratically on North Main Street in Scottville. See related story here.
