About 90 law enforcement officers from multiple agencies broke up what they said was a rave party on public and private property in the Diamond Fork area of Spanish Fork canyon.
Utah County sheriff's Sergeant Darren Gilbert says they made about 60 arrests for weapons offenses, driving under the influence, underage drinking, drug possession and distribution, resisting arrest, assault on a police officer and disorderly conduct.
Some partygoers say that law enforcement used excessive force during arrests at the party. One woman claims she was punched by officers and thrown to the ground.

There is some interesting reading at the bottom of that indymedia page.
Quite a number of first hand accounts. I recommend looking through those.
Here is another first hand account, with vid caps. and a nicely reported chronology..
It looked pretty excessive to me..
First they came for Muslims, and I said nothing, because I was not a Muslim. Then they came for ravers, and I said nothing, because I had no glow stick.
You think they'll do the same at Nascar tailgate parties? Somehow I doubt it.

There was a rave in Utah and the special forces were apparently sent in.

It was busted because there was fear that this party might recruit protesters against Bush's visit to Utah.
