Angela Gail Pollock, 41, was charged with aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, aggravated assault against a police officer, terroristic threats for allegedly threatening to kill law enforcement officers, criminal damage to property, leaving the scene of an accident and other charges, said Houston County sheriff’s Sgt. Al Elvins. Those charges are in relation to the incident with the ex-boyfriend, Elvins said.

Pollock also faces charges of drunken driving, reckless driving and other traffic-related charges in relation to the crash, said Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Leamon Hughes.

Pollock, who was taken to Houston Medical Center to be checked out and was released, was being held this afternoon in the Houston County jail without bond, Elvins said.

Houston County sheriff’s deputy William Mitchelson, 30, who’s been with the sheriff’s office since 2001, was treated and released this morning from the Houston Medical Center for minor injuries, said Houston County sheriff’s Chief Deputy Billy Rape.

Here’s what happened, according to an incident report in the case:

Mitchelson was responding to the domestic call about 3:42 a.m. on Ticonderoga Drive near Byron when he was struck by a 1996 Honda Civic driven by Pollock.

Her ex-boyfriend, Donald Mullis, 55, told authorities that while he was trying to load two suitcases of Pollock’s belongings into her car, she tried to back up and run over him.

Pollock then chased Mullis through the backyard of his home with her car. When Pollock drove back around to the front yard, she stuck a transformer, a neighbor’s home and her ex-boyfriend’s mailbox.

She then tried to run over Mullis a second time, who retreated to a back porch for safety. Pollock then drove her car through an above-ground, inflatable pool in the backyard.

She crashed into the deputy’s police car on Liberty Lane as she was trying to flee the scene.
