Knife Wielding Woman Gets Tasered At Lightning In A Bottle 2014

The LA Weekly is reporting that a woman was tasered by law enforcement agencies just after 6pm yesterday at Lightning In A Bottle, an electronic music festival held near Bradley, California this year.

According to attendees, the woman was wielding a knife and waiving it at the crowd.  It has also been reported that the woman stole and briefly drove a festival motor cart.

She was apparently tasered two or three times by members of the Monterey County Sheriff's department. Monterey County park rangers were also present.

After one of the taserings, a male associate of the woman seemed to be pleading for her to drop the knife. When, after a minute or two, she failed to do so, she was tasered again, held down on the ground, face down, and cuffed. She was then put in a police vehicle and driven away.

The Monterey County Sheriff's department said they had no information about the incident.

Russell Ward, a publicist for the DoLab, the organizers of Lightning In A Bottle, says there isn't any further information available on the festival's end either.

"The appropriate people have connected with law enforcement," Ward says. "We have a ranger staff deeply connected with fest. This issue was handled quickly and gracefully."

"We have a good rapport with law enforcement, and a great internal team and we've worked closely with them to keep our guests safe and secure," he adds. "It is an individual and isolated occurrence."

Lightning in a Bottle began as a celebration of nature and music in 2000.  This  year the festival is being held at the San Manuel Recreation Area, near Bradley, CA.
