SEBASTOPOL (CBS SF) — A 35-year-old woman was arrested Saturday night on suspicion of making criminal threats, resisting a peace officer and brandishing a replica firearm after Sebastopol police had received initial reports of a “possible active shooter” headed for a local tavern, police said on social media.
Police were alerted about 9 p.m. Saturday that a person with a handgun was headed from Santa Rosa to the Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol.
Officers went there and found the woman in the parking lot. She physically struggled with officers, who took a BB handgun from her and later booked her into the Sonoma County Jail. No one was injured, police said.
Police said the woman didn’t offer a reason why she chose that bar and was not targeting anyone there. Police said the woman may have been seeking “suicide by cop.”
