A party in exclusive Rancho Santa Fe attended by more than 200 people late Friday night led to a stabbing, fights and arrests for disorderly conduct and resisting officers, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said.

The owner of the property on Los Morros was arrested for violating the county's social host ordinance against allowing underage drinking. Deputies used a Taser to arrest one person on the property. Several people younger than 21 were found drunk.

Deputies had gone to the property shortly after midnight after receiving a report that someone had been stabbed. Deputies went to a local hospital to find the stabbing victim.

"The victim became aggressive towards a deputy on scene and was subsequently pepper-sprayed and arrested," according to Sgt. Joe Passalacqua.

The suspect in the stabbing remains at large. At the location at Rancho Santa Fe, four persons were arrested for disorderly conduct or resisting officers.
