A Florida man was arrested after he allegedly concocted a homemade bomb and tried to kill another man’s chickens with it.
Police say 55-year-old Scott Wegener built the IED from a Canadian Mist bottle, Pyrodex FFg black powder, sand and a cannon fuse. A witness said Wegener threw it into the other man’s backyard where it detonated, intending to kill his chickens.
Wegener, nicknamed “Spider,” had apparently been engaged in an argument with the man over a BB gun.
Wegener was charged with possession or discharge of a destructive device.
