After crashing her car, police say Muhammad "grabbed the children and ran into" the home. That's when police say she began choking the children, but was stopped by a fireman who arrived on scene after the crash. 

The property next to the home Muhammad crashed into was also damaged, police say. 

Police say Muhammad admitted she was under the influence of heroin. Muhammad gave a blood sample, but refused to perform any sobriety tests. 

The ages of the children were not available. They were released into the care of Child Protective Services. 

Muhammad was booked into Metro Corrections on the following charges: two counts of wanton endangerment, two counts of criminal mischief, two counts of assault, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and failure to maintain insurance. 

She was being held without bond.
