A crazed bee keeper has been pictured fighting with police officers over beehives after they attempted to evict her.

Rorie Woods was seen trying to launch a flurry of bees at cops from the Hampden County Sheriff's Department in the US.

Having turned up at her £1.3 million mansion to tell her that she had to leave, officers were met with protesters – and angry bees.

According to deputy sheriff Daniel Soto's report: “Officers secured the premises and waited for Mr. King to return, as we were told that he was at court trying to delay the eviction.

“At that time a female later identified as Rorie Susan Woods exited her vehicle and went to the back of the trailer and started shaking bee hives to let the bees out.

“Deputy Michael Joslyn attempted to stop Woods who successfully freed one of the hives by breaking the cover…causing hundreds of bees to swarm around. Deputy Joslyn was stung in the face and had to retreat.

“Officers at this time attempted to stop Woods but were attacked by the bees.”
The 55-year-old woman then put on a beekeeper's suit and started to free more angry bees.

Three huge hives were taken off a trailer and launched at the officers.

Eventually, after several stings – including to three officers who were allergic to bee stings – the woman was finally arrested and is now awaiting a court date.

It is not clear why officers were trying to evict the woman, or what happened to the three officers who were allergic to stings, however.

But, upon being told of the three officers, the woman replied: “Good.”
The fate of the bees is also unknown.

A police spokesman said: “This woman, who travelled here, put lives in danger as several of the staff on scene are allergic to bees.

“We had one staff member go the hospital, and, luckily, he was all right or she could be facing manslaughter charges.

“I support people’s right to protest peacefully, but when you cross the line and put my staff and the public in danger, I promise you will be arrested.”
