On Oct. 12, deputies say, Woods had arrived at her home to find she was being evicted. Authorities noted she had several manufactured bee hives which were being towed by her SUV. As soon as Woods arrived, she began releasing the bees — which quickly became agitated as deputies tried to get a handle on the situation.
A sheriff’s deputy reportedly tried to stop Woods but was met with a furious swarm of bees that began surrounding deputies, forcing them to retreat. The aggressive swarm stung several officers and innocent bystanders, authorities said.Trending:

Woods was also seen carrying what appeared to be a tower of bees which she used to barricade herself behind the entrance to her residence in an attempt to put an end to the eviction.
The evictions process had been ongoing for two years at the time of the attack.
