‘Sleep With One Eye Open’ – Woman Charged With Making Terroristic Threat

November 22, 2022

An Atmore woman has been charged with making a terroristic threat.

Whitney Hope Hyatt, 31, was booked into the Escambia County (AL) Detention Center.

Hyatt allegedly threatened to burn down a residence on Ewing Drive in Atmore with the family members inside.

“She also made several threats and also stated that law enforcement would have a good reason to lock her up this time,” Atmore Police Department Sgt. Darrell McMann said.

Officers responded to the residence the following day after Hyatt returned and created a disturbance, he said.

“She continued making threats toward family members and advising them to sleep with one eye open,” McMann stated.

She was then placed under arrest.

    @2 sides, doesn’t matter what someone else may have done. She’s responsible for HER actions. She made a CHOICE to do this, no one made her do it.

    Everybody , INCLUDING THE POLICE, is quick to put blame on this woman. But nobody is concerned about who said or did WHAT that caused such a reaction… Js.. Know the whole story before u blame someone for behaving badly..

    She can’t hurt anyone in a padded, locked room. That’s probably where she needs to be.
