At 5 a.m. Sunday, Hayman allegedly began banging on the front door of a home on the 13600 block of Jonquil Place, northwest of the intersection of Big Blue Trace and Wellington trace, claiming he was a police officer.

When the resident opened the door to see who it was, Hayman allegedly pushed it opened and began running from room to room stating, “Where is she? Where the (expletive) is she? Her car is here.”

The resident, who reportedly told Hayman to leave, said the man was looking for his ex-girlfriend.

Hayman, who is 6 foot 4 inches and 250 pounds according to the arrest report, grabbed the resident and pushed him over a sofa.

“What the (expletive) are you going to do?” Hayman asked the resident.

A woman inside the home said she woke up and saw Hayman standing over the resident. The woman said she was so scared she locked herself inside the room and tried to get arm herself but was too nervous to do so.
