Former Mississippi Trump leader, GOP activist charged after ax-swinging incident

A former Donald Trump campaign leader and Republican activist from DeSoto County has been charged with disturbing the peace and domestic violence after becoming intoxicated and wielding an ax at a Nesbit home, police say.

Heather Leigh Fox was arrested and charged by DeSoto County Sheriff’s deputies about 2 a.m. Friday at a home in the 5400 block of Church Road West in Nesbit. The DeSoto County Jail website shows that Fox was booked at 2:53 a.m. on a charge of disturbing the peace-domestic violence. It does not indicate whether she was released on bond…

…In addition to being active in politics, Fox founded a group called DeSoto County Reform after a 2012 dispute with county school officials over conditions at Olive Branch Elementary School, where Fox’s children attended. The DeSoto County Reform site is where Fox identified herself in an April 2 posting as Trump’s North Mississippi director. The post has since been removed.
