The Hernando County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that deputies went to Nickole Dykema's home Tuesday night to assist probation and parole officers who were trying to issue felony arrest warrants. Authorities say they fired several bean bag rounds at her after she tried to stab the deputy and refused to surrender.
