On Sunday, November, 4, at approximately 10:50 a.m., the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a woman who had stopped her vehicle in the middle of Huffine Lane and was walking on the roadway armed with an AR-15 rifle.

The incident took place near the intersection of Huffine Lane and Lynx Lane.

After a brief standoff with Sheriff's deputies, Tiffany Janelle Johnson-Saks was taken into custody. While she was in the backseat of a Sheriff's vehicle, Johnson-Saks was able to free herself of her handcuffs.

Officers attempted to restrain her by placing her in a headlock and removing her from the car. One of the officers was grabbed by the testicles and needed medical attention.

Johnson-Saks was eventually re-cuffed and transported to the Gallatin County Detention Center where she was charged with assaulting an officer and held without bail.

Additional charges are pending.
