Samuel Salais of Clearfield was booked into the Davis County Jail Tuesday night on suspicion of third-degree felony possession of methamphetamine, a class B misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia and a class A misdemeanor charge of assault, according to Assistant Clearfield Police Chief Mike Stenquist.
According to Stenquist, officers were called to a home on a report of a fight. Stenquist said a woman answered the door and called out, "The police are here!"
At that point, Stenquist said Salais lowered his head and shoulder as if in a football play and ran at full speed into the officer, who was standing in the doorway.
"I believe he had two things in mind: to hit the officer and escape," Stenquist said.
As he was running towards the officer, Salais allegedly dropped a syringe and meth on the floor.
"Our officer was able to collect it and take it into evidence," Stenquist said.
