OGDEN, Utah — A 24-year-old Ogden man has been arrested on suspicion of assault on a peace officer or military service member in uniform.

According to a probable cause statement, Ogden police officers were called to 3062 Adams Avenue on a report of a family disturbance on Saturday.

They made contact with the suspect, later identified as Juan Marquez.

He had been yelling at his mother and being aggressive towards her and she had asked him to leave the house.

Marquez resisted the officers’ attempts to get him to leave, and said ”you’re dead” to the officers and widened his stance and put his fists up in a fighting position.

One of the officers pulled out his Taser, at which point Marquez complied. He was arrested and taken to the Weber County Jail and booked on suspicion four misdemeanor counts.
