Gainesville woman arrested for kicking deputy, possessing drugs

By Austin Eller News Director

A Gainesville woman faces a series of drug charges following erratic behavior Thursday in Murrayville in which she allegedly kicked a Hall County Sheriff's Deputy. 

According to the Hall County Sheriff's Office, Wendy Michelle Wendt, 41, was reportedly acting erratically and swearing at employees of a gas station on Thompson Bridge Road in Murrayville. 

Deputies had Wendt step out of her SUV in the parking lot, at which time she continued swearing and acting erratically. She then allegedly kicked a deputy while being placed under arrest for disorderly conduct. 

Deputies reportedly found marijuana, ten grams of methamphetamine, 14 alprazolam pills, five grams of fentanyl and six syringes containing fentanyl at the time of her arrest.

Wendt was transported to a hospital for evaluation due to her behavior. She was then booked at the Hall County Jail Thursday evening on charges of possession of marijuana and disorderly conduct, along with felony obstruction of an officer.

Wendt was released from jail on $8,300 bond Friday afternoon.

Investigators on Friday obtained additional warrants for Wendt for possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of schedule IV drug, possession of fentanyl and possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute.

She was then arrested on the updated charges Monday morning at the Lumpkin County Sheriff's Office. 

She was being held in the Hall County Jail without bond as of late Tuesday morning.
