She was drunk and swinging an axe at a Mississippi residence.


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.

According to the police report, Fox was agitated and had “the odor of an intoxicating beverage emitting from her body.” The report also said officers, on a video recorded by the complainant, observed Fox swinging an ax inside the home’s garage.


Fox, 42, of Olive Branch, is a member of the DeSoto County Republican Party Executive Committee as well as the state party’s executive committee. Fox also identifies herself in an April posting on her website as North Mississippi director of Trump’s presidential campaign. The posting includes a photograph of her being embraced by Trump. However, a campaign spokesman Friday said Fox has not worked for the campaign in any capacity since March.
