A 61-year-old Ingram ex-con accused of hitting a woman with a baseball bat and threatening another man was arrested this afternoon, making it the 22nd time he’s been jailed in Kerr County.
Julius Earl Hardee was arrested by a Kerrville police officer on suspicion of violating a protective order. The order was intended to protect a woman Hardee was accused of assaulting in November.
On or about Nov. 30, 2019, Hardee hit the woman with a baseball bat, according to an indictment, leading to a felony assault charge. The same day, he threatened to harm a man who witnessed the assault in order to prevent the man from testifying against him, according to another indictment, leading to a felony obstruction charge. A third indictment alleges Hardee brandished the bat at the man in the course of threatening him, leading to a second felony assault charge.
On or about Dec. 20, 2019, Hardee is said to have followed the same woman from a restaurant to a home in violation of the protective order issued by Judge Kathy Mitchell, according to a criminal complaint filed on April 14. This complaint led to his bond being revoked.
As of this afternoon, Hardee was being held on bonds totaling $52,000, according to jail records.
