When she saw the officer being attacked with his own baton, she jumped on the assailant's back until backup arrived.
Williams-Tillman was driving to a store, listening to gospel music on her radio, when she spotted the Baton Rouge officer and the suspect.
The officer came across Bennett sleeping in his vehicle and saw drug paraphernalia.
As Williams-Tillman passed by, she saw what was happening, pulled alongside the police officer, and asked him if he needed help. "You don't think about the risk".
"You don't have time to think about it.I did what God needed me to do".
Just days after a Florida man was hailed as a hero for saving a police officer's life from a vicious attack, a Louisiana woman has found herself in a very similar situation. Bennett had previously tried to take the officer's gun from him.
Along her way, she noticed an officer on the side of the road, arguing with an angry-looking man. "But then her taking that second step was even bigger and she gave that officer a second chance".
"I looked in his eyes, and he looked back at me", she said.

Monday afternoon, Mayor-president Sharon Weston Broome held a special press conference to honor Williams-Tillman for her courageous actions.
The post included a photo of Williams-Tillman and another woman, whom police identified to The Huffington Post as Trenisha Jackson.
Soon after the incident, Officer Amie was reunited with Williams-Tillman for a news conference.
Instead, she jumped out of her vehicle and onto the suspect's back. "Ms. Williams-Tillman was able to help hold off the assailant until other officers arrived". "For showing so much love and concern for one of our officers BRPDSalutes you", the police department said.
