Hatt charged yet again


BATAVIA — A man indicted in October on domestic violence charges and arrested again a month later now faces more charges after an investigation into a September traffic stop.

Aaron M. Hatt, 25, of Federal Drive, was arrested Sunday and charged with driving while impaired by drugs, DWI, unlicensed operation and failure to signal.

The charges stem from a Sept. 18 traffic stop on Wortendyke Road.

Hatt now has at least three pending cases against him.

He was indicted in October on charges of two counts of second-degree burglary, felony criminal contempt of court, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, aggravated family offense and misdemeanor criminal contempt of court.

Hatt was arrested in April, May and again in July for allegedly repeated acts of violence and defying an order of protection.

Just weeks after the indictment was filed, Hatt was arrested again for domestic violence.

Deputies were called to FairBridge Inn and Suites on Federal Drive and found that Hatt had allegedly choked a woman and refused to let her leave.

He also fought with police, deputies said at the time.

He was charged with felony criminal contempt of court, criminal obstruction of breathing, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration.
