SOUTH WEBER -- A 21-year-old woman is accused of assaulting three deputies after trashing her parents' home in South Weber.
Katelin Ann Bitton was booked in Davis County Jail on Wednesday on four counts of assault on a peace officer, one count of disorderly conduct, one count of damaging a jail and one count of assault. She is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
According to a news release issued by the Davis County Sheriff's Office, officers were called to a home in South Weber. Bitton, who recently had been released from a treatment facility for mental health issues, got into an argument with her parents and threw a toaster, a chair and other items. Her father told Bitton he was calling the sheriff's office, and dispatchers could hear screaming in the background.
At one point, Bitton grabbed a knife and threatened to kill herself, but her mother talked her out of it, according to the news release.
When officers arrived, a sergeant started talking to Bitton's father. She then ran from the home, throwing food items. When told to stop, Bitton refused and threw more food and "yelled expletives at him," said Davis County Sheriff's Deputy Scott Harper.
"He was forced to take her to the ground to control her," Harper said.
Bitton kicked the sergeant in the chest and Harper said he has some bruising and red marks on his arm.
Bitton was handcuffed and placed inside a patrol vehicle, but hit her head against the interior. When a deputy tried to hold her, she spat in his face, Harper said.
Bitton was placed in another vehicle and spat in another deputy's face. Harper said the woman then grabbed the fingers of another deputy and tried to break them. She was able to dismantle and destroy a car microphone used for the video system in the patrol car.
The Davis County Attorney's Office is reviewing the case before filing formal charges in 2nd District Court.
