Authorities have arrested a Florida woman who they say tried to stab a deputy with a large sword or machete inside a mobile home filled with thousands of knives, swords and bladed instruments.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office said in a news release deputies went to Nickole Dykema's home on Tuesday night to assist probation and parole officers, who were trying to issue felony arrest warrants.

Authorities said they fired several bean bag rounds at her, after she tried to stab the deputy and refused to surrender.

Authorities said she later armed herself with several weapons and advanced toward deputies. She was arrested five hours later, after authorities struck her with a stun gun.

Dykema faces multiple charges. Deputies said they had removed more than 3,500 "bladed instruments" from the home.
