- That’s one deadly weapon that probably doesn’t come up during officer training.
Tempers can flare when a person gets served an eviction notice. That’s understandable — after all, someone’s about to get kicked out of their home.
It’s still rare to see somebody deploy what amounts to a biological weapon to try and stop the eviction. But that’s what a Massachusetts woman allegedly did against sheriff’s deputies attempting to serve an eviction notice.
Rorie Susan Woods is accused of unleashing a hundreds-strong bee swarm on the deputies in protest. The 55-year-old beekeeper reportedly smashed several of her hives to drive the officers away from the house.
Her plan didn’t work, though. Woods was also arrested and is now facing multiple assault charges.
Some of the stung deputies were allergic to bees. Fortunately, they seem to have recovered without further issues.
