On March 28, Hatfield “did alter, destroy, conceal, or remove any record, document, or thing to wit: a handgun, with purpose to impair its value or availability as evidence in such proceeding or investigation,” according to the indictment.
He was arrested in March following a multi-county police chase that ended in Cincinnati.
Hatfield was a passenger in a vehicle driven by William Denny II, who police said was also connected to the homicide.

Early on March 28, Miamisburg police found a 2001 Mercury GMQ believed to be driven by two suspects — later identified as Denny and Hatfield — connected to a Trotwood deadly shooting, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Officers started a chase, with OSHP troopers joining. As the chase approached Cincinnati, OSHP used stop sticks, which deflated the car’s tires.
The pursuit continued, with the suspects reportedly throwing items outside the car.
Denny lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a median.
