OGDEN -- A woman faces multiple charges after she allegedly attempted to run over two narcotics officers while another individual and a toddler were inside her car.
Avalon Wollenberg, 23, of Salt Lake City, has been charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, two counts of aggravated assault, and causing or permitting a child or vulnerable adult to be exposed to a controlled substance.
She was being held Friday in Weber County Jail without bond.
Wollenberg arranged Thursday to deliver 3 ounces of cocaine to a Weber County individual by meeting at a Layton restaurant, according to a probable cause statement filed in 2nd District Court by the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force.
When Wollenberg arrived, strike force agents, who were wearing police vests and operating unmarked vehicles with emergency lights on, approached her on foot, says the statement.
She allegedly drove toward two of the agents and tried to run them over, then swerved and rammed a vehicle occupied by two more agents.
Agents had their weapons drawn and ordered Wollenberg to stop, said Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force Sgt. Steve Zaccardi.
A woman and her young son, who is 2 or 3 years old, were passengers in Wollenberg's car.
The female passenger was not charged in the incident, said Zaccardi, who praised strike force agents for safely defusing the situation.
"They did a really good job getting out of the way and using restraint," he said. "It could have been bad on both sides."
Wollenberg was found in possession of about 3 ounces of cocaine and a small amount of marijuana, according to the probable cause statement.
