What was the intent behind trying to light them? Clearly she was intending to throw them at deputies or otherwise use them to interfere with her
arrest. An explosive (even a firecracker) is a weapon when used in an aggressive manner. My cup of coffee can be a weapon if I intend to throw it in

I suppose it would also be interesting to find out whether BATFE is getting involved or not
