On May 10, 2024, at 6:06am, Officers with the Naples Police Department responded to the intersection of 5th Avenue South and Davis Boulevard in reference to a domestic violence-related incident involving a firearm. The victim/reporter advised a male was chasing her with a firearm and attempting to batter the woman. The victim/reporter did not provide a name or location to 9-1-1 operators before the call was lost.

Shortly afterwards, an officer located the victim/reporter walking eastbound on U.S. 41 with luggage and recent visible injuries to her face. The victim confirmed a physical altercation occurred at a nearby hotel. The victim also confirmed her longtime boyfriend, later identified as Jamise Bozeman, 48 years old, had taken her phone away as she was attempting to solicit help while speaking with a 9-1-1 Public Safety Telecommunicator.

As officers were interviewing the victim, Bozeman drove past the officers in his 2024 silver Honda. Collier County deputies assisted officers and conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle. Bozeman was identified as the driver of the vehicle and ultimately detained for the DV Battery offense.

During a tow inventory search of the vehicle, two (2) loaded firearms were located. Bozeman is a convicted felon in Georgia, as well as Florida, and is prohibited from possessing firearms and/or ammunition. The victim sustained minor injuries and was treated by Collier EMS.

Bozeman was transported and booked at the Naples Jail Center, without incident, on the following charges: Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, Tampering with a victim, Battery (Domestic Violence).
