Pop-bottle bombs suspect wanted to hear booms, authorities say
(WOUB) - Fire officials in Columbus accuse a man of placing eleven pop bottle bombs around buildings at his apartment complex just for kicks.

A spokesman says the fire department tomorrow will ask prosecutors to charge 23 year old Peter Fox with one count of possession of a dangerous ordnance and one count of inducing panic.

Battalion Chief Doug Smith says when investigators interviewed Fox a few days ago, he told them he just wanted to hear the bangs.

Authorities responding to a call March First found seven bombs that had exploded and four more they had to defuse. They were made with household chemicals and 16 to 20 ounce soda or water bottles. No one was hurt, and there was no damage.
